Here is the first image I am ready to show from Bisti Badlands/De-Na-Zin Wilderness. This is an extraordinary place just south of Farmington, New Mexico, not far from Chaco Canyon. I was here for a night with , and Dave Peterman. We left our cameras out clicking away for several hours while we had some dinner. I ended up with 315 exposures, each 33 seconds long (30 seconds + about 3 seconds to open and close the shutter and to restart. I then combined all these exposures in Photoshop. The light on the foreground structures is from the moon. This place is truly magical and highly recommended for a visit.
