I was staying at a cabin in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico and decided to try some nights shots of the Winter Constellations. This shot of Orion contrasted nicely against moonlight reflecting off the metal aspects of the cabin. The gibbous moon just off to the left of Orion so this was an added challenge.
