South African Night Sky
The following two photographs were both taken beneath the South African Summer sky but under very different circumstances. Moon Over Cape Town 3 was shot on the city’s outskirts during the full moon. Between the light pollution coming from Cape Town and the full moon, hardly a single star was visible the night of the photograph. Milky Way From the Northern Cape was taken beneath the darkest of skies. I waited until the new moon and then traveled to Sutherland, a small town in the Northern Cape where there are few artificial lights to distract the eyes from all the beauty above.
