This scene was created on one of the popular trails in Bryce Canyon National Park.  The dimly lit location became vibrant by light painting.  A sense of depth is created by the foot trail leading through the scene, along with the trees and various pinnacles.  A setting half-moon provided the interesting shadows on the foreground embankment.  Cool colored conifers and an azure sky contrast nicely with the warm tones of the terrain.  The subtleness of the curved star trails around Polaris is a result of the moonlit sky.
