    I'm internally whining because I wasn't able to join the Seattle Summit - mainly because of images like this one. The POV and silhouette look is spectacular. Well-done, Dennis.

Would you share the settings you used?

I used aperture priority with -1 stop exposure bias, "partial metering," and I metered on the sky region above the Needle. The resulting settings: f/22 and 1/3200 sec at ISO 800.

I would have used ISO 100 if I had been attentive. I neglected to change my ISO setting after making a previous shot in low light. At ISO 100 the shutter speed would have been 1/400 sec.
