Journey of Night
Fitz Roy peaks, which were lighten up by rising moonlight, produced a glowing red shining effect. This was an original discovery I made during my 40 days Patagonia expedition (April - May 2016).
By taking star trails over Fitz Roy on 25 April night, I accidentally captured the red shinning Fitz Roy peaks caused by rising moonlight. The weather condition was simply perfect: no wind and crystal clear sky, which made this star trail photography successful.
Then I realized that this could be a new phenomenon not commonly known before. In the next 2 weeks, I spent a great deal of time to observe this phenomenon from different locations, both high in the mountain tops and low down to the valley. By the end, I successfully photographed this moonlight red peaks phenomenon four times, and gained good knowledge about when, how and in what degree this phenomenon would occur.
