"Ptarmigan In Moonlight" --- Here is a view of Ptarmigan Peak taken from beneath the summit of False O'Malley mountain in Alaska's Chugach Mountains. Though it looks like broad daylight, this long-duration (3 minutes) time exposure was taken in Alaska's mid-winter, midnight darkness, lit by the moon and stars, with a little warm glow on the nearby rocks coming from Anchorage city lights in the distance. I find it interesting that you might not even be able to tell that this is a night-time photograph without the star trails showing in the night sky. There is some other subtle difference from daylight photos, however, that I haven't been quite able to put my finger on. I'm calling these "#daylike" photos.
