Lightpainted Hoodoos

Filed under: Nature, Night, Rocks, Skyscape, Travel — collin j örthner @ 3:47 am

A ventured a bit further away from our campsite to make this image, compared to yesterdays post. I had a tiny flashlight with a single AAA battery which I light painted the hoodoos with for about half of the 91 sec. long exposure. A few clouds were present which is obscuring a few of the stars on this image.

  1. Good work, Collin. See the cool Rockman face?

  2. Thanks Judy, a few people thought it looked like Shrek or a mummy and others that it looks a bit creepy too. The dark parts making the “face” are really just water stains from an earlier thunderstorm.
