I caught the last piece of the setting moon as it disappeared behind the Grand Teton peak in Grand Teton National Park. The sun had set 90 minutes earlier behind the Teton Range, so there was still enough twilight to silhouette and reflect them in Jackson Lake. The brightest stars are still able to compete with the setting moon in this unique evening NightScape.

Virtually all my NightScapes are ONE exposure (less than 30 seconds), and with very little Photoshop correction.
