Astronomer Dennis Mammana and I shot some night sky photos of Ricardo Breceda’s amazing metal dinosaur sculptures on a rather windy evening. After Dennis went home, I decided to take a few more night sky dinosaur photos before packing it in. I noticed some unusual cloud formations. That and seeing the new Godzilla movie inspired me to have a little fun with this image! :D
By this time, the 88% moon was fairly high in the sky, and much of the desert was well lit. Nonetheless, a wee bit of light painting from my head lamp seemed to help the dinosaur come alive, so to speak.
