Richard, great composition and well planned the moon light and stars are well balanced. Even with a low ISO still quite bright, must have been a wonderful night under the moon and stars.

y* for this one:)

Thanks, Ansel. The light from the almost full moon was really bright in the clear air. That allowed me to get strong shadows. I did clean up streaks in the stars from a two minute exposure. I thought it would be better than a sky full of little dashes. I'm glad you liked the photo.

Greetings from California - Richard
