This is how they shot these wonderful pictures:

We shot for 1 hour or so before sunset and then we went inside to warm up, waiting for the lights. The show started during blue hour, which was perfect to get balance between the colors and the sky. When it got darker, we started seeing the light rays in the sky, providing a stunning composition on the American falls (see image below). When it got really dark, it was hard to get an exposure because the colors were too bright. I had to shot two exposures, one for the color spots and one for the rest of the image. I then blended the two in Photoshop using luminosity masks (see image below).
