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. 😀 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 atracción en carretera en el camino hacia el Gran Cañón en Arizona. Atracciónes en carretera fueron construidos como “trampas para turistas”, con tiendas de regalos y cosas que hacer para los niños, un lugar donde una familia podría descansar después de un largo viaje en el camino a algún lugar. Construido en 1972, Bedrock City fue modelado después el dibujos animados “The Flintstones” (1960s). Y Bedrock City aún sobrevive. Por ahora. Propietario Linda Speckels está 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 volcán). El Teatro Bedrock juega dibujos animados de Flintstones con la transmisión 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.

I arrived at the Grand Canyon hoping to take some night sky photos, star trails, who knows. But there were only clouds, no stars.. At first, I was disappointed.

But with the clouds came the storms. Wow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Llegué en el Grand Canyon con la esperanza de tomar algunas fotos del cielo nocturno, la estrella de esteles, quién sabe. Pero sólo había nubes, no hay estrellas. Al principio, me decepcionó.

Pero con las nubes vinieron las tormentas. Guauu.

I blended this with another photo so I could “light paint” the arch with a Protomachines LED2 flashlight. 2 minutes f/8 ISO 200 2 4000k.
