My original “day version” was set at dusk with a low hanging moon reflecting in the water. I ended up changing the sun position (making the moon position impossible) but I’ve been able to realign things for the night version. I hope you enjoy it!
Quite simply, the moon is phenomenal. Very well done, mate.

Night vs. Day
I’m an old desert rat and love both. I suspect that a few months ago when stepping into the shade was a luxury and standing out at night watching the stars was a delight I’d have preferred night. Now, autumn, with chilly mornings and crystal-clear daytime skies with all the colors of the hills and mountains in full display day is winning.
They’re both lovely. Nice to not have to choose.
Loving this. Soon as I saw I thought of Underworld’s track “Moon In Water”. Sweet work Ryan.

Night time Wallpaper are my favorites. So Marvelous.
Simply Beautiful, such realistic detail, it reminds me of the time I spent in the high deserts in SO-CAL. Great render my friend.
In a rare reversal, I think the single screen versions are the pick (!), having the hills in the background and the sky / moon overhead. I Like both, but prefer the night version – as somone else has said, it seems to capture the feel of a clear desert night.
Have you ever thought about making a dynamic wallpaper for Mac with day and night versions?

The mood, lighting, all of it…this night version is gorgeous and has the perfect “feel” of nighttime. Love it.
Love at first sight- put this up on my desktop as soon as I saw it. I also think that the night version outdoes the day version for some reason. (Perhaps because in the night version the color contrast is reduced by the moonlight, shifted to all blues, and not as dramatic as the day version?)
Love Day / Night version.
Now that’s the badger.
As someone who shies away from anything too bright, offerings like this are a godsend. So much beauty without making me blind in the process.
Love this !! but where is the 21:9 resolution ?
Dominates the daytime version. Sweeeet!!!
Even better than the day version. I love the moon’s reflection on the water, and the shadows on the dunes.
