Silhouette of Mountain's Edge at Nightfall

For our final photo in the nightscapes series, we took this photo of the edge of Camelback Mountain and you can see the saguaro cacti and plants silhouetted against the night sky. 

If you enlarge the photo, you can more easily the stars. I really like this photo and am going to take more night sky photos in the future. 

You also can see the night glow of Phoenix backlighting the mountain and causing the edge to be more pronounced.

Wow, look at those stars. They look like little alien space ships up there. Great job, Julie.

Must have been a long exposure. Those stars are doing some moving.

Very nice. You can really tell how the lights of the city light up the night sky in such a big city.

Julie, I have really enjoyed this series. Each shot has been spectacular. What a perfect landscape for night shots. Very bold and striking.

Very nice, Julie...you've got to enlarge the photo, though, to get the full effect.
