  1. I like Orion, too, but I think that’s mostly because, other than the Big Dipper, it’s the only one I can find…..

    Great shot!

  2. Good looking frame, Derrick. Nicely done!

  3. Reblogged this on Shutter to Imagine and commented:
    The scene is quiet, but there’s an awful lot going on in this picture. Ruins at dusk always excite interest, but the twilight and the stars have been so beautifully captured that the subject matter is taken to a whole new level. Props to Mr. Birdsall over at My Sight Picture for such an electric snap!

  4. Lots to like in this piece, too! Sweet!

  5. Great, great shot here Derrick! Love the juxtaposition of those stone structures against the beauty of the night sky here, my friend!

  6. […] Fort Phantom – a lovely night shot featuring the Orion constellation as well as some manmade stone structures.  Derrick Birdsall captures and shares a top drawer shot in this genre, using both the stars as well as a natural leading line with the structures to guide the viewer gently through the frame.

  7. looks like quite a spooky looking place

  8. Those magnificent chimneys appear to be paying homage to that fabulous night sky!
