Night Views, Alaska and Northern Lights

A full moon gives sufficient light, especially amplified on a snowy night, so that landscapes are strangely ethereal. These night photographs seemed otherworldly, perhaps because the moon was in a different part of the sky than the sun ever was or the softness of the images due to long exposures. It is strange to see pale blue skies with both recognizable constellations and clouds (in the photos) and the shadows are disconcerting and slightly out of place.
