Brill,

An outstanding series. While they are all wonderful, I'm quite struck with the last two.

Beautiful mountain (and starlight) photography. Great results in challenging conditions make the effort all worthwhile.

Brill,
an amazing set which leaves an outstanding impact. The moonlit mountains with a touch of pink light is lovely and all the others are brilliant. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Sorry to say so, but I fail to see a sense in making a night landscape appear to be in broad daylight. If you had not put "moonlight" in your title, and added the long exposure times, I would have assumed the moon to be the sun in several of the pictures. Reading your title, I had something à la Ansel Adams in mind: pictures where the night is night, and the moon is moon. The other pics, the Matterhorn in sunrise, and the shots showing the twilight are magnificent and fully match your high standards.

Regards,
Marcus

thanks, marcus and really no worries at all but to explain a little, i was not trying to make night appear as day but it was more a haphazard combination of full moon, clear sky, heavy, brightly lit snowfall and the incredible mountainous landscape at that altitude had a very surreal effect and maybe my technical and creative ability, or lack of it, made it appear that way. it's not subtle but when stars and house lights become visible, the illusion of daylight was quickly broken.

to be honest, i didn't think of ansell adams, or his eerie, beautiful moonlit images, it was too cold and much more an intuitive reaction which came from being lucky enough to be there. it wasn't planned or thought out any more than setting the alarm clock for 4am and my tripod was a flimsy table-top version balanced here and there where possible. what i did has no doubt been done countless times before. it's nothing new but I was pretty awed and had to get out there with my camera all the same, to record something of a brief moment for myself and share with you here.
