Douglas firs stand sentry straight awaiting the full moonrise

Like the firs on the distant wall of the Columbia River Gorge, we stood on a Rowena Crest cliff awaiting the full moonrise. This shot taken at astronomical sunset was about 20 minutes after the sun disappeared behind the north wall of The Gorge. At iso 100, the exposure was 1/13th at f11. And yes, the sky was French mauve, only the tone curve was manipulated to create the silhouette.
