Your Morning Cup of Pixels: Those Cold Dazzling Nights

Here’s a higher-resolution and unFacebooked version of this image. I like to keep things positive, so I will just say that the image uploading process here on my site is much more gentle to images than in Facebook. The difference is more apparent in some images than in others, and this is one of the more dramatic examples. To judge for yourself, compare the image below to the one here.

I took this about a week ago on clear night from the Lincoln Monument here in Council Bluffs, Iowa. From this vantage, and with the sun setting so far south, the Omaha skyline is backlit by a luminous orange glow, and the long exposure (about 10 seconds) accentuates the background colors.
