Photo: The Devil’s Cornfield – Death Valley Like You’ve Never Seen it Before!

The Devil’s Cornfield (6996)
The Devil’s Cornfield, Death Valley, CA. The name is evocative, and the landscape eerie, so I decided to play it up a little with some red light painting during the exposure. I illuminated the foreground with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀 I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

As you might guess, that ain’t really corn. Arrow weed features strong, slender stems that were used to make arrow shafts by the Cahuilla and other Southern California settlers.

Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8 lens @ 12 minute total exposure, with each individual photo 4 minutes long f/8 ISO 200 on 2017-06-13 01:28.
