    A little blue hour exposure in Checkerboard Mesa of Zion. The light on the horizon is Vegas! So far away...

    Hey Doug, this is a great blue hour photo! The Checkerboard Mesa is a cool area, especially how you composed it.

    Beautiful. I've got a lot of shots of that tree, but none like this.

    Nice location for a night shot. I have done night shots within a mile of here.

    Thanks once again for all the C&C. More to come as I sit in front of a monitor going through a week + of exposures.

    Yes, very nicely exposed for realism treatment of this scene. Feels like I am standing there. Very peaceful image. Getting the night sky with any detail and the foreground with any detail into the same shutter click requires the right time of day, which you seem to have nailed with this shot.

    Doug beautiful capture.. extremely well executed . Just the right amount of light to maintain the dark feel...It feeels so real like i was standing there and my eyes adjusted to see in the dark.
    Regards,

    Very nice job on this one, Doug. I have never seen it photographed at night.

    Very nice mood - blue hour and stars are a great way to fill an otherwise empty sky. I agree with the others that you've got just the right amount of detail in the foreground.
