Babar Begins His Lonely Luna Trek: Elephant Star Trails, Borrego Springs – Amazing Sculptures by Ricardo Breceda

The sculpture of the elephant was created by Ricardo Breceda. The camera is facing more or less to the east. This 37 minute long exposure star trails photo shows the perceived movement of the stars in the night sky. And it also shows the trail of the moon!

Rattledragon Star Trails, Borrego Springs – Ricardo Breceda’s Amazing Sculptures

I wanted to create this vortex around the dragon’s head with the stars. I left the camera clicking away for 50 minutes to create this effect with the stars. All color work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation.

The dragon sculpture was created by Ricardo Breceda. The dragon is 350 feet (106 meters) in length. I shot photos with noted astronomer Dennis Mammana the night before. There was some wind in the south part of Borrego Springs. The next day, after having dinner with him, I decided to try the north part, which seems to be often less windy.

Processing in Photoshop CS4 with Nik Viveza. 2014-06-18 02:10. Light painted with an LED flashlight with a red gel. All color work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation.

Quería crear este vórtice alrededor de la cabeza del dragón con las estrellas. Salí de la cámara al hacer clic de distancia durante 50 minutos para crear este efecto con las estrellas. Todo el trabajo de color se hizo durante la exposición, y no es una creación de Photoshop.

La escultura del dragón fue creado por Ricardo Breceda. Está a 350 feet (106 m) de largo. Me tiro fotos con el astrónomo señaló Dennis Mammana la noche anterior. Había un poco de viento en la parte sur de Borrego Springs. Al día siguiente, después de cenar con él, me decidí a probar la parte norte, que parece ser a menudo menos viento.

Devil Car: International Car Forest of the Last Church, Goldfield, NV

The Devil wears no Prada here in this painting.
 
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 although occasionally plagued with cloudy skies, I managed to get some photos I was happy with here at this strange art installation.

Valentine’s Day: Sally’s Bordello, Gold Point, Nevada

Just in time for Valentine’s Day… :D

One of the old mining cabins of Gold Point in Nevada. I lit the interior with a speedlight with a red gel to give the feeling of someone still working long nights. It took quite a number of tries to get this just the way I wanted it to feel. All colored light work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation. I stayed here for two nights, photographing the town, enjoying the beauty, and eating delicious food that Herb and Sandy serve. I loved this experience, and hope to return someday. These ghost towns and mines are a part of our rich history, and I am fascinated by the stories they still have left to tell. And these voices seem to whisper a bit more at night.
