Saluting The Night Sky – Surrealistic Art in the Nevada Night Sky

Saluting The Night Sky (6871)


The Car Forest is an art installation outside Goldfield, Nevada. I drove up from Beatty to photograph here on a gorgeous evening, surrounded by braying and sometimes galloping burros. Many of these cars were repainted since my last visit, some for the better, and some by idiots.
~~
This is a real night photo. I illuminated the exterior and interior 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. ūüėÄ
~~
Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8 lens. The long exposure photo is 21 minutes total “stacking” three photos, each 7 minutes f/8 ISO 200 on 2017-06-11 00:03.

Carrara Goggles – Ghost Towns of Nevada At Night!

Carrara Goggles (1604)
When I first saw this from the inside, they reminded me of goggles. How long this will remain standing, I’m not sure. Carrara is a failed cement plant down the mountain from where marble was discovered near Beatty, Nevada. This was photographed on a windy night, and surprisingly cold for June.

This is a real night photo. I illuminated the interior with a red light from several angles as well as the building in the back 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. ūüėÄ Initially unbeknownst to me, night photographer Kevin Balluff photographed this beautifully from a similar vantage point earlier than I did, and also with red light, so this is another variation for your enjoyment. ūüôā

Land Of The Black Church (2016-06-14 16:55 01)

An ant’s eye view of the Black Church. 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.
Nikon D610/Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 1/400s f/8 ISO 200.

Riders On The Storm (Grand Canyon)

I actually take photos during the bright light of day! No long exposure, no light painting here!

These are seemingly the only three people at the Grand Canyon to not be busting out selfie sticks. ūüėÄ The incredible incoming storm was sufficiently enthralling.

Wilmaaaaaaa!!!!! Light Painting in Bedrock City!!!!!

Willllllllmaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!

Flintstones, meet the Flintstones! Bedrock City is a roadside attraction on the way to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Roadside attractions were built as “tourist traps” with gift shops and things to do for kids, a place where a family could rest after a long drive on the way to somewhere. Built in 1972, Bedrock City was modeled after “The Flintstones” cartoon from the 1960s. And Bedrock City still survives. For now. Owner Linda Speckels is selling it for $2 million to someone who will keep Bedrock City operating. Bedrock City has a Fredmobile train ride looping through Mt. St. Wilma (a volcano). The Bedrock Theater plays Flintstones cartoons with the audio broadcast over loudspeakers. There’s a campsite, diner, convenience store, and a large gift shop. And of course, there is Bedrock City, built to resemble the stone age town of Bedrock from the cartoon “The Flintstones”. Will it be here in a year? Who knows.

With a nod of gratitude to Troy Paiva and Lance Keimig, pioneers of this sort of light painting photography.

Flintstones, meet the Flintstones! Bedrock City es una atracci√≥n en carretera en el camino hacia el Gran Ca√Ī√≥n en Arizona. Atracci√≥nes en carretera fueron construidos como “trampas para turistas”, con tiendas de regalos y cosas que hacer para los ni√Īos, un lugar donde una familia podr√≠a descansar despu√©s de un largo viaje en el camino a alg√ļn lugar. Construido en 1972, Bedrock City fue modelado despu√©s el dibujos animados “The Flintstones” (1960s). Y Bedrock City a√ļn sobrevive. Por ahora. Propietario Linda Speckels est√° vendiendo Bedrock City por $2 millones a alguien que va a mantener a Bedrock City operativo. Bedrock City dispone de un viaje en tren Fredmobile recorriendo Mt. St.Wilma (un volc√°n). El Teatro Bedrock juega dibujos animados de Flintstones con la transmisi√≥n de audio por los altavoces. Hay un camping, restaurante, tienda de conveniencia, y una gran tienda de regalos. Y, por supuesto, hay Bedrock City, construido para parecerse a la edad de piedra de la ciudad de Bedrock de los dibujos animados “The Flintstones”.

Con un gesto de gratitud a Troy Paiva y Lance Keimig, pioneros de este tipo de fotografía con pintura de luz.
