This shows the illumination of Crazy Horse Memorial before the doubleheader that night, Legends in the Night laser light show and Ruth's Night Blast.
“Legends in Light” multimedia laser-light show is presented nightly, at dark, from Memorial Day weekend through Native Americans’ Day in October. The laser-light show effectively turns the mountainside into a giant 500-foot “screen” for the spectacular display. Just as the Memorial honors Native Americans, “Legends in Light” dramatizes the story of the rich heritage, living cultures and contributions by Native Americans to American society. The show features colorful animations, sound effects and laser beams choreographed to music.
June 26 blast celebrates the birthday of the late Mrs. Korczak (Ruth) Ziolkowski (1926 - 2014), wife of the late Crazy Horse sculptor. It also commemorates the anniversary of the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. The battle was June 25, 1876. Crazy Horse was a main strategist in the defeat of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and his troops. September 6th blast honors the dual anniversaries of the 1877 death of Crazy Horse and of the 1908 birth of sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski.

Great contrast of colors when illuminated against the dark blue sky, murat.
A POV superbly employed towards the main scene, those imposing rocks.

Interesting and unusual subject, very bold colors on the high cliff contrasting with the deep blue sky.

Bonjour, cher Murat,
Ah oui, là, nous comprenons mieux ces projections lumineuses sur les roches.
Un spectacle qui doit être fabuleux sur place.

The illuminations and their colours look really special, especially against the dark blue background. The sharpness is superb.

A well exposed image featuring this laser-light show. Fine rendering of the colours and the textures.

Great photo of the same rock but during the light show, impressive illumination, the colors and shapes of rocks form different "night monsters" :)
danos (103212) 2017-03-15 11:05
great the view of this colourful shape of the rocky horse.Impressive presentation with all this colourful lights to contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.
sacimar (28951) 2017-03-16 5:18
interesting night image, I like how the rock is illuminated, the visual effect is beautiful with the dark blue sky in the back, well seen,
ChrisJ (118861) 2017-03-16 7:27
These laser light shows are becoming popular everywhere. I saw 2 in Egypt. The Pyramids & at Luxor / Karnak Temple. Fantastic colour and good sharpness for a nocturnal shot. Tfs!
abmdsudi (58220) 2017-03-16 17:23
That resembles some kind of nasty looking creature up there, but the glowing colours in darkness really adds to the image. The exposure must have been quite a challenge though, but what an experience - it's an amazing lazer technique to witness. Nice take, Congrats.
jmdias (69212) 2017-03-20 1:54
at night, with these colors, the monument looks like a king in the throne. nice visual effect. I guess we won't be able to see the monument done in our lives.
