Once again you are drawn to the dramatic lighting and capture it magnificently in this photo. I have to go back...............soon!

Thank you, Tim, for the kind words. You are as much an influence on me as I may be to you. We feed off each other when we are shooting together. Your approach here is very much "in my palette" -- I usually like to spot meter on the highlights and let the background go dark. Interestingly enough, my evening image of this same kind of subject matter in the Alabama Hills does not feature the glowing spots of light that you found here the next morning. ( ) In that image, I speak largely through texture, while you speak here with light.
