Image was taken looking west about an hour after sunset from a farmer's field in eastern Pennsylvania on March 14, 2013.  Equipment used was a Canon 5D MII and a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens zoomed in to 200mm @ f5.6.  The exposure time was 8 seconds at ISO 2500 and processing was done in Photoshop CS6 with noise reduction applied using the NIK Define 2.0 filter.  The winds were gusting to 32mph when this image was taken so some minor blurring occurred due to the movement of the smaller branches.
