Default Mount Rundle, Banff, Alberta

From one of my night photo opps that took me through this area. Best time in my opinion to get landscape photos at night is during a half/full moon. Highlights are gentle which aid in bringing out the details.

classic shot. and one of my favorites from you. i could see this selling very well. not only is it technically a masterpiece, but it also invokes such a calm and peaceful nighttime mood, i feel like i am standing on the lakeshore listening to the crickets and coyotes.

just out of my own curiosity, do you have a version with a bit shorter exposure without the trails on the stars?

All things considered an excellent shot. But as Dustin says "is there a shot without the star trails?

As said already, stunning!!!! My eye does keep going to the grass on the left and it looks a little messy compared to everything beautifully clean. I have to find something to critique as can't just say amazing/stunning/fantastic all the time. It does need a foreground but just a little less messy.... possibly take a hedge trimmer with you

I can't really say anything as I've yet to come up with a landscape photo even 50% as good as this.

Thanks to everyone that commented!

I do have one that is a 32 second shot void of star trails BUT even though I know you all would like to see that one I'm just not able to weed wack that grass for Mark so I'll post a NEW one of Mount Rundle, same time, different location just up the street. This spot is missed quite a bit because you can't really see it from the road. If you don't know this spot, you'll miss it most times driving up and down this road.

Kevin.

As much as I liked the first one, i like this one even more. The non-trailed stars are even more realistic and i really like the foreground in this one even better.

Is there some HDR in this? or a blended exposure?
