When it comes to night time photography, starry skies are often the focal point, leaving everything else in black shadows. That is not the case when it comes to the work of Mikko Lagerstedt. He manages to juxtapose complex constellations with landscapes that is full of detail as well. But his night time photography is also given some surreal elements along the way.

For instance, in one image, the starry skies are impossibly captured above a scene in which sun rays stream through the trees of a forest. In another night time photography capture, it appears as though a man standing on a ladder is bursting with cosmic light. Utterly captivating, the images are full of imagination that endeavors to relay a sense of magic after dark.
