Re: Great photo

Thanks much. I recently got a new scanner (Epson V500) and have been having fun scanning some old slides.

Re: impressive

Thanks very much Dow. One of those transient magic moments. The scene was behind me - we were heading down valley this day - so I kept looking back to see what developed as the moon rose.

Hope all is well with you!
