Owens River by Moonlight by narmansk8 Owens River by Moonlight by narmansk8
The Owens River and the Eastern Sierras by Moonlight. There is nothing like fumbling around with your gear at night trying to get your composition right, freezing your butt off, and cursing under your breathe because your remote wont work. All in a nights work. Hahaha!

For me this is one of my better done nightscape photos using only moonlight. Shooting the nightscape or landscape by moonlight is extremely difficult and takes alot of trial and error. Nailing your exposure can be extremely difficult as the amount of light the moon emits changes every night which also changes the length of your exposure and how far the stars will "streak" in the image. But, for me at least, color has always been the biggest problem with these types of shots. Often they can look extremely similar to really diffused daylight. So getting the color at a point where you can really get that light blueish soft light color requires experimentation both in the camera and in post processing. I feel that this is the best job I have done so far in capturing the mood that the landscape exudes under the moonlight. So far :)

This is great! Night exposures are one of my favorite types of photography. I know how hard they are to get right.
