    Fuji X-E1, tripod, Fuji XF 14mm f/2.8. Stopped to get this on my way home from a later-than-usual night at work. Yes, it's from a JPG.

    The glow to the left is Philadelphia/Chester, PA; and to the right is Wilmington, DE.

    The tower on the far hill is an old watchtower from the historic Granoque estate of the DuPont family.

    When night shines like the day.. stunning. And after a long, long day I'm going to bed. Thank you for lighting the way to dreams of moon magic.

    You have an eye for colours, John. This particular combination makes it extra special indeed. Beautiful!

    Out of curiosity: so you live on the "other side" of the Delaware River? I used to pass Chester and Wilmington when I drove from Princeton, NJ to Williamsburg, VA and v.v. I drove the 295 a couple of times but mostly the 95. Still remember the beautiful sunrises when I drove down.

    Anyway, let me say again how much I like this photo!

    Checked out the EXIF and saw "Brandywine" and I'm immediately transported to The Shire, which is appropriate in this image, I think. :smile:

    Thanks, all!

    Brent, it's amazing how much the Earth turns in 30 seconds. Viewed at high magnification, the stars have made distinct though tiny trails through the sky. Next time I need to up the ISO a little and drop the time down to get closer to "points".
