Leonard Knight spent three decades joyously painting religious messages on a tall mound of adobe he called Salvation Mountain. Knight built his mountain using adobe mixed with straw to keep strengthening the mountain. Mr. Knight believes that he has put more than 100,000 gallons of paint on his mountain to combat erosion of wind and rain.  Leonard Knight passed away in 2014.

The Black Church of The Red Sand Beach (2016-06-14 17:52)
For the first part of the trip, I traveled toward the west part of Iceland with a photographic group led by Lance Keimig.  We stopped at the Black Church near Raudisandur, or Red Sand Beach. The church is a typical Lutheran style for this region. This is probably one of the few days we had really clear skies on the whole trip, as it was overcast and cloudy most of the time. The black church is one of 3 black churches in Iceland. They are black because the exterior wood is painted with pitch, just like the hull of a boat to protect it from the harsh Icelandic elements.

Photo: The Chapel Of Santa (long exposure light painting night photo, Santa’s Village)

The Chapel of Santa (0109)
Santa’s Chapel in Santa’s Village near Lake Arrowhead, CA was originally built in 1955. It closed in 1998. The village survived a nearby fire in 2003. Now, a new owner is creating an environmentally friendly action adventure park, with hiking trails, zip-lining, and many other activities. And, yes, Santa’s Village. The owner granted me permission to photograph Santa’s Village at night. I wanted to photograph by the full moon, but the skies were very cloudy and foggy instead. I photographed anyway, and the fog created some very eerie images.
This photo was taken at night. Illuminated by a ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and a full moon. 264 second exposure. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

Capilla de Santa en Santa’s Village cerca del Lake Arrowhead, CA fue construido originalmente en 1955. Se cerró en 1998. El pueblo sobrevivió a un incendio cercano en 2003. Ahora, un nuevo propietario es la creación de un amigo de la ecología parque de aventura y acción, con rutas de senderismo, tirolesa, y muchas otras actividades. Y, sí, Santa’s Village. El dueño me dio permiso para fotografiar Santa’s Village en la noche. Quería fotografiar por la luna llena, pero el cielo estaba muy nublado. Fotografié todos modos, y la niebla creado algunas imágenes muy misterioso.
Foto tomada en la noche. Iluminado por una linterna LED 2 ProtoMachines y una luna llena. 264 segundos de exposición. No es una creación de post-procesamiento. No hay píxeles fueron perjudicados en la creación de esta foto. 😀
