Mike,

both shots well composed, and doubtfully required a lot of work. But, if I may, my first impression was that there was a humungus forest fire beyond the canyon. (I guess we normally think of night skies as being blue-black, and this looked on my screen like smoke clouds.) One nice thing about computer manipulation is that one can alter such things to taste.

No forest fire. Some thin clouds moved through. Without the moon and well after sunset the sky isn’t really blue. Imaged using daylight WB and processed to try and preserve natural colors in the night sky.

Here is one that was much warmer, and had quite a bit of sky glow and clouds moving through:

Milky Way, Lake Lila, Adirondack Mountains, NY USA

And another:

Farm Barn, Milky Way, Shelburne Farms, VT
