Photo: A Bowl Of Milk (Milky Way in the Owens Valley)

A Bowl of Milk (7203)


This is Owens Valley Radio Observatory in the Owens Valley, CA, listening to the Milky Way. I photographed this coming back from the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. To my surprise, I was immediately swarmed by aggressive mosquitos during the entire shoot despite wearing wearing a hat and a hoodie. I got quite a few bites on my hands and even my forehead despite wearing a knit cap.

I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Nikon D610/Irix 15mm f/2.4 lens @ 20 seconds f/2.4 ISO 4000 on 2017-06-23 01:23.

Photo: Luxury by the Lakeside – Abandoned RV Under The Milky Way

Luxury By The Lakeside (7329)


Someone’s former home near Owens Lake in California, a lake that was fairly large before the DWP and the L.A. Aqueduct sucked it dry. Now it’s common to have enormous dust clouds blowing from the lake. But back in the 1870s, steamer ships cruised across the lake, where silver mined from Cerro Gordo was loaded on to the ships to transport across the lake, part of the trip south to Los Angeles.

I illuminated interior and exterior with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. Originally, I was going for a 15 second exposure. I never could get all the “light painting” finished. I made it 16 seconds. That I could do. I can only run so fast. I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Nikon D610/Irix 15mm f/2.4 lens @ 16 seconds f/2.4 ISO 5000 on 2017-06-24 00:44.

Photo: Remembering – More Relevant Than Ever (Manzanar Milky Way)!

Remembering (7025)


The “Soul Consoling Tower” at the Manzanar cemetery. 120,313 Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed to one of ten concentration camps during WWII. Manzanar in Owens Valley, CA, was one of these sites.

Photographed this near the new moon at night with Ron Pinkerton. I illuminated the tower with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Photo: The Dark Tower – Manzanar Under The Milky Way

The Dark Tower (7093)


A stark reminder of our dark past, guard tower No. 8 rises above Manzanar Camp. Reconstructed in 2005, it is one of the eight guard towers that surrounded the camp. 120,313 Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed to one of ten concentration camps during WWII. Manzanar in Owens Valley, CA, was one of these sites. I illuminated the tower with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

Arch Rock, Joshua Tree National Park: Long Exposure Night Photo with Light Painting

 The magical northern part of the Milky Way over Arch Rock, Joshua Tree National Park, California, USA. I light painted the arch, illuminating this with a ProtoMachines LLC LED2 flashlight. But there were other flashlights illuminating the arch as well. The one on the side and the red light were actually done by other people exploring the arch. This was originally a test shot, but I decided I liked the exploratory lights on the arch and went with this. I hope you like it as well.

Singing Beneath The Stars: Long Exposure Night Photo with Light Painting

 Singing Beneath The Stars (4504)

“I caught the happy virus last night
When I was out singing beneath the stars.
It is remarkably contagious –
So kiss me.”
~ Hafiz

The summer Milky Way in Joshua Tree National Park, CA USA.

This is a real photo taken at night. I set my tripod-mounted camera to a long exposure, making the camera much more sensitive to light than our eyes. This is why this photo seems brighter than what we might see at night. It is not due to post-processing. When the photo is a long exposure photo, the sky will appear brighter, making the blue more apparent. I illuminated the Joshua Trees with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

I am fascinated with how a single long exposure photo can show cumulative effects of light in a single image. Thank you for reading this and looking at the image. -Ken
