This is the Sideboard Saloon ruin, originally built in 1907 by saloon keeper Patrick Mullin, with the doorway arch all that remains of what was once a one story wood building. The stone arch entrance still stands, and so I photographed it in the evening. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although often plagued with cloudy skies, I tried to work with it the best I could. The green and blue light painting was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation.

Alien Blue (International Car Forest of the Last Church, Goldfield, NV light painting photography)

This alien car seems to have took a wrong turn.

Outside the historic mining town of Goldfield, NV, in a desert dotted by Joshua Trees, you can see a field of old cars that are wildly painted and jammed into the ground at unlikely angles. This is the International Car Forest of the Last Church, created by Michael “Mark” Rippie and painted by Chad Sorg. In July 2014, I stayed in Goldfield and created night photos with light painting to enhance the bold colors of the painted cars even more. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and on this particular night, I got fairly clear skies. A gifted light painting photographer named Ron PInkerton was also there for the entire evening, and we had a fun evening photographing this surreal location.

With a nod of gratitude to Troy Paiva and Lance Keimig, two photographers who largely pioneered this sort of light painting approach.. I don’t do this sort of light painting often, but their two books definitely had an influence on this photo.

Goldfield Days, Antique Car Nights: Ghost Towns of Nevada

 Now almost a ghost town, Goldfield once was the largest city in Nevada, a boom town fueled by the lust for gold. Many rusting cars, stamp mills, and equipment can be seen, and one can get a map of the historic sites almost anywhere in town. The inhabitants that remain are kind but don’t mince words, the sort of people who don’t care who you are as long as you are nice, and shoot from the hip. I like that. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although occasionally plagued with cloudy skies, I kept shooting, clear skies or no. All colored light work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation. However, I liked the feel of black and white for this image, so I decided to go with it!

Antique subway station entrances from what appears to be from a London subway station. What are they doing here? I don’t mind. I love it. More fun stuff to photograph here in the almost-ghost town of Goldfield,  once was the largest city in Nevada, a boom town that was fueled by the lust for gold.

Big Blue Bus Burrowing Bottomward (International Car Forest of the Last Church)

How this bus stays up, I’m not sure. I came up here Thursday evening. There were two photographers, Matt and Justin, already here, but they left shortly afterwards for Bodie ghost town in California. I immediately began shooting, a bit dissatisfied with the shots I had taken the previous night, as the moon was blotted out by huge thunder clouds, and everything was very dark, not so conducive for this sort of light painting photography. Tonight was much better!

Stargate – Milky Way Over Delicate Arch, Utah

A man from the Gujurat region of India by way of the Bay Area contemplates Delicate Arch underneath the amazing Milky Way, rising from the southeast and drifting right toward the south. If you stay still enough, I swear you can actually perceive the stars drifting, a special stillness that we don’t often have opportunity to experience. The glow beneath the arch is a light dome, but from where, I’m not certain, but I believe the camera is facing more or less southeast.

The enormous – and rather unusual – Double Arch made a brief apperance in an Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie. The larger opening has a span of 148 feet (45 m) and a height of 104 feet (32 m). This is a wide angle view looking over and through the larger of the two spans toward the Milky Way to the south. You can see the headlight trail of a car leaving the nearby Windows Arch area. I light painted the giant Double Arch with a Dorcy LED flashlight.

Balanced Rock Milky Way – Arches National Park, Utah

Depending on what angle, Balanced Rock may appear as a ball on an bottle or the open lid of a garbage can, opening underneath the Milky Way as we are facing more or less south on a moonless night. What we’ll all agree upon is that it is amazing, as some estimate that the 55 foot tall sandstone boulder topping the stone pedestal weighs about 3500 tons…meaning you don’t want to stand under it during a stiff wind.
