- Russian city Murmansk has 40 days of darkness from December into January.
- Photographer Amos Chapple took their iPhone 11 Pro to capture it.
- The images show yet again just how capable an iPhone is when in the right hands.
The Russian city of Murmansk has to deal with continuous night time from December into January and photographer Amos Chapple took a new iPhone 11 Pro to capture it. Murmansk is the largest city in the Arctic circle, and it's the perfect place to put Night Mode through its paces.
And that's exactly what Chapple did. With the sheer portability of iPhone making an immediate impression on the photographer.
Night Mode itself has become a huge feature for those using iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro when enjoying night time photography. And its capability is still amazing to even the most seasoned of photographers.
However, Chapple does note something that's been an irritation for many – the inability to enable Night Mode on-demand.
Some of the photos Chapple capture are truly breathtaking. You can see them all over on their PetaPixel photo essay.
