Just got back from hiking in the Grand Canyon. It was a bit cold but really beautiful with almost no crowds. Here is a night shot (30s exposure) from the bridge to Bright Angel campground. Only the moon was lighting the scene of this view of the Bright Angel Creek flowing towards the Colorado River. Jupiter is the bright object in the sky.

It is hard to compose in the darkness using the viewfinder so I relied on the bubble level on the hotshoe to get me close. I found that away from the city lights with the mixed white balance that daylight gave the most realistic color representation.
