Images taken at approximately 0520 MDT, Monday, 24 February 1997, from my home 1.5 miles northwest of Kalispell, Montana (elevation 2994 ft). The Swan Range (elevation 7-7,500 ft), illuminated by moonlight, is in the background. Konica SR-3200 color negative film, 50mm f/1.8 lens, 15 seconds. The negative was scanned into Adobe Photoshop. The curve was tweaked, and the image sharpened with the unsharp mask filter.
