Ah this brings back memories of a fun trip! I can remember thinking an hour prior to you making this image that the clouds would ruin both the sunset and the impending star photography, but Mother Nature was in a cooperative mood and allowed for this opening on the horizon, then banished most of the clouds as the night sky took hold. I really like how you framed the foreground granite ledge to perfectly lead the eye to the falls. Great processing also! Hope you guys have a safe trip back from Canada - eh!

OK - I'm not quite awake - thought I was looking at Scott's blog post. This all gets so confusing when the three of us shoot together. No I haven't lost it (not quite anyway), I just need more coffee!!!

@Don Smith: I'll take it as a compliment that at times, my work could be considered as captivating as Scott's. :-) This could have been worse...I could have posted this image in the same time frame as his and yours.
