On the Dock

On my road trip out to Colorado the Illumination was really high. The moon was also setting really late at night/early in the morning. I didn't want to miss the opprotunity of being out in the middle of nowhere and decided to try my luck one night out in Moab. Here is a photo I took while "glamping" in Moab near Arches National Park. It could almost be mistaken for day if it wasn't for the stars.
