It seems that I get the honor of being first to see and comment on this'n. It's a great one, nice dark background to set off the neon.

Where's the clock in relation to this shot?

To my left. It's a free standing sign. On the map, the diner itself is the building directly below the pin point (the label's above the gas station to the east, though!), and the sign is just a hair to the right of the pin point. Looks like I didn't get to the formal 'Thanks n1w' on this one before I got distracted and you returned.

Notice the coca-cola glass in neon in the entry? If I'm back up that way, I'll try to get a better shot. It was late and a long day, so I just wanted to check out the sign and see how the settings worked. Not too much chance of me getting by here at dusk to be able to show the diner itself, though. But in mid-summer, the parking lot would be full of motorcycles.

I should go into town after dark. My pages are way too sunny. Good one, Bits.

Is this headed for Utah too?

Yes. We intend to collect all the world's neon and diners.

Excellent photograph. That Tilt'n Diner used to be a regular stop for my me and my old ski friends on our way to Gunstock. This photo is my style of night photography. I see you used ISO 400 f4.0 at .015s. I always use a mini tripod resting on a car door or something. I would have used ISO 80, 15 second exposure at the highest f setting possible. Unless ISO 100-200 might be better with the highest f setting.
