A Perfect Night by WaynePinkston

A Perfect Night for Photography in the Valley of Dreams East, In the New Mexico Badlands. There was a lot of airglow in one area of the sky, adding a lot of color. You can see how bizarre the landscape is, a very alien and otherworldly place.

Thanks for taking the time to look. Hope you enjoy!

Last Paddler by PaulZizkaPhoto

Extending the Canadian paddling season in style – under the aurora. An absolutely perfect night in the mountains: a touch of moonlight, the mountains dressed up in white, “warm” temperatures and the northern lights dancing above!

Avenue of Baobabs by night by scipbe

Stars and the milky way above the avenue of the baobabs in western Madagascar. The “Avenue of Baobabs”/”Alley of Baobabs”/”Allée des Baobabs” is one of Madagascar’s iconic landmarks.
The region between Morondava and Belon’i Tsiribihina has hundreds of impressive baobabs. But this “avenue” is a prominent group of 25 baobab trees along the dirt road. Baobabs are native of Madagascar. Six of the eight known species are endemic and the baobabs on the “avenue” are “Adansonia grandidieri”, the tallest baobab species. These trees are 30 meters in height and are thought to be more than 800 years old.
The “Avenue of Baobabs” has been portrayed by countless photographers, especially at sunset. I stayed after sunset and I made this photo when there were still shades of orange, pink and purple at the horizon and it was dark enough to see the milky way clearly.

Night Blaze by PaulZizkaPhoto

A wonderful celestial show last night here in Banff National Park, with Procyon and Orion rising over Mount Rundle and a Geminid meteor ripping across the sky above the iconic peak.
The meteors kept showing up outside (or on the edge of) the frame, or they weren’t bright enough to show in a 6-second exposure. Finally one showed up in the right spot!
