Well, it's hard to choose which Remingtons should be saved but I personally enjoy his night scenes. And it truly gets dark out here at night. Before that though, the color of everything changes and it's a challenge to paint it accurately.

During the final years of Remington's career, he sought to master the tonal subtleties and elusiveness of night lighting. This study exemplifies his efforts to render "the low tones in the dark." In March, 1908 a jubilant Remington recorded in his diary, "I have now discovered for the first time how to do the silver sheen of moonlight."
