The Goldfield Hotel is by far the largest, most dominant building in Goldfield, and at one point was considered one of the finest hotels west of the Mississippi. Built in 1907 at the height of the gold rush, the hotel is now thought by many to be haunted, and has been featured in TV shows. The hotel is currently not open for looking around, but plans are underway for reconstruction. I light painted this, although some of the lighting is from the nearby streetlights. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although occasionally plagued with dark cloudy skies, I kept shooting, clear skies or no.

Fotografía nocturna con la pintura de luz en el desierto de Nevada, EE.UU. en el pueblo fantasma de Goldfield. Se trata de una instalación artística en el medio de la nada. Asimismo, el artista no era dueño de la tierra. 😀
