USAF Memorial at Night

The USAF Memorial, located on a hill on the SW side of the Pentagon (where the airliner struck on Sept. 11th). This is a particularly challenging shot; the area is bathed in a variety of direct and indirect illumination of different intensities and color temperatures.

And then there were the moths ... flitting around in the floodlight beams against the dark sky (had to PS those out).

Now the EXIF on the image says this exposure was made at a shutter speed of 1/10,000th of a second. That's fairly incredible inasmuch as the Canon 6D I used tops out at 1/4,000th.
