The Art of Night – The Photography of Mark Gee

The Art of Night Facebook Feed

Last night was a great night for auroras. I was busy trying to finish up editing on a film, but once I saw people posting real time aurora photos on Facebook, I quickly grabbed my gear and headed out the the south coast of Wellington, New Zealand.

I missed the most intense part of the night, but I was still happy with what I managed to get, especially from Wellington.

Hope you like the image, and feel free to share!

Cheers
Mark

I shot this image back in 2012 and it’s still one of my favourite images - it a photo of The Gap at Castlepoint which is on the south east coast of the North Island of New Zealand just a few hours from from the capital city of Wellington. I photographed the image at 3am, so I simply called it '3am at the Gap’

Hope you like the image, and feel free to share!

There's something special about the time of night just before the day breaks. The stars are still shining, although you can see light on the horizon as daybreak approaches and night turns to day.

I shot this panorama from the Cape Palliser Lighthouse on the North Island of New Zealand back in January just before daybreak. It was an amazing night of photographing the stars, and I shot right up to sunrise. It would have to be one of my favourite times of the day. What is yours?

Hope you like the image, and feel free to share!

Cheers
Mark
