    @sniper I like both, but the second one is a stunner!

    Would contributers *please* put in their camera settings (including the lens) so the rest of us can learn.

    Thanks

    Ok, settings for 1'st one:
    Nikon D7200 with Tokina 11 - 16mm F2.8 Lens. Taken at 11mm focal length, F2.8 ISO3200 25sec

    Second one is a compilation of photos. 1'st Photo was of the landscape while moon was full and low. 2'nd Photo was a nice, clear star sky as per settings above, and then kept shooting at 25s intervals to catch "shooting stars" and added them in the compilation.

    You really got the shot!
    I hiked to the amphitheatre about 6 weeks ago, the moon was full and we had a fire going so conditions did not allow for a good shot....

    There was a half moon, so not much chance of good stars. A lot of dust so I decided to leave my travel lens on....

    Thank you, that is a magic place.

    With regard to fires in the amphitheatre: It is actually verboten. I was there in 2013 with a guide who assisted us in making a really big fire. During my recent visit there I read in one of the pamphlets that you are not allowed to make fires on that route. It was confirmed by one of the park wardens who hiked with us. They do grudgingly allow fires at Venstervalle, as the spot is reachable by 4x4 and the park officials are able to remove whatever is left by the hikers or other visitors.

    Did not know about the fire! Magic place, I am very keen to do the whole hike. I have driven to the Venstervalle and have hiked from there to the baba baddens. Special area!
