Day and night are the two dualities we must all face living on planet Earth. These two distinct times offer such a unique experience based on where you’re located. I want to capture the essence of the night through unique examples of photography.

There are many passionate photographers around the world who have snapped some amazing shots in the past. I’ve put together this gallery of 40 brilliant night time photographs from various landscapes. You can see a whole different side of civilization after the sun goes down. This is especially true in developed worlds with electricity powering homes and street lights everywhere! Check out my gallery below and let us know your thoughts in the post discussion area.
