Captured Sights of the Dazzling Night Sky

 The talented Ben Canales is a night photographer who has a love of stars. He travels around in search for astounding scenery and, by means of his professional photographic skills, manages to capture what seems to the viewer an unbelievable sight of not only the glittering stars, but also amazing scenes of nature, beautiful mountains, and romantic abandoned structures.

In his childhood, he used to live in a light-polluted urban area, which concealed the beauty of the night sky. He later moved to the West Coast, which he now says has been a "treasured experience", climbing mountains and pitching tents under clear night skies exploding with dazzling stars, and he encourages others to do the same. He succeeds in expressing this experience to us through this breathtaking series of photos he has taken himself during his mind-blowing journey.

You can find more of Ben's fantastic photos on his website.
