Sometimes I do not want to have light painting on the main foreground element in a composition because I want it to have a certain emotion. The dinosaur sculpture was created by Ricardo Breceda. The camera is facing northwest.

A Carnosaurus and Allosaurus locked in a combat that shakes the stars above. These sculptures, among my favorite in Borrego Springs, are created by Ricardo Breceda. This photo is blended from two photos. The Milky Way is visible, as the camera is facing south.

Battle Triumphant Star Trails: Borrego Springs Long Exposure Photo With Amazing Sculptures by Ricardo Breceda

This is a star trails photo facing more or less east, showing the perceived movements of the stars over 76 minutes, and features two of Breceda’s battling dinosaur sculptures. I illuminated the dinosaurs with a ProtoMachine LED2 during the exposure or they would have appeared as silhouettes. The dinosaur on the right appears to be emitting some sort of laser blast from its mouth. This is actually the light trail from an airplane. It’s unusual that I leave these in, as I almost always clone them out. But the placement of this airplane trail struck me as funny, and I couldn’t resist keeping it in! The glow in the distance is light pollution, probably from the houses and resorts about a mile or so beyond. I had only small issues with bending to adjust and view the camera, not bad considering I had surgery for a torn meniscus last month.
