Last year, I went to Maine back in the summer and Switzerland back in the fall. I mentioned that I would be posting some night photos from these locations and now I am eventually posting some of those pictures. So first, I thought I would post a picture from the Matterhorn.
This is a composite image that is actually two pictures blended into one. One picture is exposed for the sky and the reflections in the pond while another picture is exposed for the ground. At longer exposures, the camera will see stars that the naked eye can't see. The glow on the horizon is a result of light pollution over Central Europe. However, it helps make the Matterhorn stand out. I will soon have some night photos from Maine.
