    Wow. Made it a favorite. Nice work. Love the highlights of the setting sun (that not the moon, is it?) against thye darkness beginning in the lower left. Would love to know the lens/settings for the shot...mlm

    Michael - This was one of the coolest nights! It was foggier than I had ever seen before! It was a full moon and in low areas, you actually couldn't see the bottom of the tripod in the fog! This shot was taken with an 18-55mm Canon lens at an f/16. I believe the exposure was about 25 seconds.
