Low Hanging Fruit – Time To Make Lemonade

In this post, I talk about how light pollution affects the night sky photos I shoot around my house. Here’s another example that I shot last night from my back porch right at the end of twilight. When the clouds are low like this, the various lights in the neighborhood illuminate them nicely.

As I said in the other post, I’m not a fan of light pollution, but I do believe in taking advantage of all possible opportunities. Given the choice, I’d rather see proper shields applied to the lights in my area so the light isn’t wasted into space. But as long as that light is shining upward, I’ll make lemonade from it.
