If you're curious how this was done- The light in the tent is a remotely triggered flash. All the lights on the trees were lightpainted using two headlamps.
Took this while backpacking in the Lost Creek Wilderness, in Colorado.
I have some other shots in mind for this area, but this had to do this time because I had my roommate and girlfriend along and I wasn't going to subject them to my photographic madness.
I KNEW I should have brought my remote release though... would've been much cleaner than me having to be forced to only use a 30 second shutter.

Post challenge: Glad some liked this. I knew there were going to be tons of buildings... and I've always liked tent shots in remote areas. There was another place that would have made for a much better place for tent photos, but it was another mile away from water and 1,000 feet higher, so this was a better basecamp. Perhaps another time!
Also, I think this is the highest vote I've ever received from commenters- thanks!

ETA: Happy 100th challenge to me! Great one to hit 100 with :)
