California Stars by Jennifer Peterson

Nightscape photography brings perspective into our lives by showing us the vastness and beauty of our universe and the amazing places found on our planet.

Over the last several years I have dedicated myself to learning as much as I can about nightscape photography while optimizing my skills to create engaging images. This series showcases my efforts at combining the beauty of blue hour and the mysterious night sky.

These images were taken in eastern California, where the night sky can be especially dark and mesmerizing. You are transported instantly to somewhere timeless and primal because these images seem otherworldly. However, closer inspection reveals the unique geology is definitely the granite of the Alabama Hills, a place of exceptional beauty.
