It was indeed one of the coldest night for me , nevertheless i couldn't resist the temptation of staying out late to watch the stars and enjoy the scenery of the clear sky. I mounted my tripod and my camera and waited till they turned the light off totally, i set the camera on manual and i was lucky to capture this photo at one of the most beautiful valley's in Jordan called Wadi Rum.

Just a terrific picture! Great vision, lighting, photographic choices, and post-processing restraint. 10, thank you, and may I sprinkle you lightly with an Order of the Thumb?

Reminds me of a Roman Camp outside a little village in Gaul...
Excellent exposure, and noiseless too. WD.
