Twilight At The Totem Pole

We were all up very early waiting for our Indian guide Tom Philips to take us out into the tribal park to photograph the Totem Pole just before sunrise. The twilight light is famous there if you have a cloudless clear sky which we did. No city lights and very clear skies met us at the Totem Pole. I remember we all had to work swiftly or we would miss that gorgeous light.

This image post processed in Lightroom 3 with a touch of saturation and the use of the black slider to keep the Totem Pole in shadow. The coloration of the light is true to what you would see with your naked eye.
