You might notice a bias towards urban landscapes in this list of incredible images taken at night, but I assure you this is for good reason: light in cities, provided by signs, buildings, street lighting and traffic, makes for truly exquisite nighttime photography. By contrast, natural landscapes by night are, well, very dark, and difficult to capture in all their glory. The exception to this rule, as you’ll see, comes when natural light displays like forest fires and auroras play a role. Whether you prefer urban or natural landscapes, I’m confident that you’ll be greatly inspired by the collection stunning images that we explore below. Hopefully they’ll furnish you with great new ideas to use in your own photography and design work.
