Among the Red Wildrose (8851)

High up in the mountains above the parched sands of Death Valley are the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns, built in 1877. In these arid 8000 ft./2430m mountains, these 25-foot tall kilns were used only for a couple of years, which might account for the great shape. Forced labor of Chinese, American Native, and Mexicans may have built these. And almost 150 years later, one can still smell the burnt charcoal. I lit the interior with a warm white light and the interior with a red light from a ProtoMachines LED2 handheld flashlight while the tripod-mounted camera's shutter stayed open in this long exposure image.

I met up with my friend Lance Keimig (National Parks At Night) and a beautiful group of people in DVNP. We went out late nights to photograph the amazing sites. Thanks, and feel free to share!

Bridging The Light (7600)
Many streaks of light moving through this photo, whether it's trucks rumbling over the bridge, the stars moving through the evening sky, or a train passing through the trees. The mighty New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville, West Virginia, one of the world's longest single-span arch bridge, and also one of the highest. The bridge appears on the West Virginia state quarter.

Nights of the Round Turntable (8526)
~~~~~
This is the original 1883 turntable, used to move train cars. I used a handheld flashlight to illuminate the turntable while the tripod-mounted camera shutter was open for 98 seconds in this long exposure night image.
~~~~~
I met up with my friend Lance Keimig (National Parks At Night) in Bishop. A group of us with NPAN went out at at night to photograph Laws Railroad Museum, which preserves some of the history of the Owens Valley. They have preserved Laws Railroad station and rail yard, the land, 1883 depot and other buildings, and an old train, were donated by the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1960. Thanks, and feel free to share!

The Wheels Fly and The Colors Spin (8518)
~~~~~
I'm not really sure what this is, but I love all the pulley wheels. I illuminated belt and pulley wheels with a handheld flashlight, using a bit of green and red light, while the tripod-mounted camera shutter was open for 75 seconds in this long exposure night image.

Midnight Gravity Pump (8511)

Model A and a gravity gas pump. I illuminated the car and backlit the gravity pump with a handheld flashlight while the tripod-mounted camera shutter was open for two minutes in this long exposure night image.

Gut Bucket Blues (8530)
~~~~~
Not really sure what this is, but it would make a cool looking planter in someone's yard. I got right up on this thing looking up, and used a handheld flashlight to illuminate the whatever-this-is with some red and blue light while the tripod-mounted camera shutter was open for 98 seconds in this long exposure night image.

Crescent Moon Throne (8499)
~~~~~
This is....well, you know what it is, and judging from the eerie red glow inside, it's probably best not to get too close. :D I illuminated the outhouse with a handheld flashlight while the tripod-mounted camera shutter was open for three minutes in this long exposure night image. The outhouse is backlit beautifully by the rising full moon. If you look closely, you might also see a beautiful ring from the moon, almost making it look like the outhouse looks like a large halo.

TMJ (1574)
An abandoned '51 Ford truck in the Mojave Desert. This is a real night photo taken near a full moon. I illuminated the truck with different colors from a handheld flashlight, including the headlights, while the shutter of the tripod-mounted camera was open.

Best Friend's Gargoyle (4155)
Abandoned movie lot, Mojave Desert. Everything here was very consistently Roman or Greek looking, and the old set location was littered with columns, some standing, some fallen, as well as busts, statues, reliefs, and stands as well as plaster molds. I illuminated the gargoyle and column while the camera shutter was open with a hand-held Protomachines LED2 flashlight. Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8. 101s exposure. F/8 ISO 200.

Budget Condos of the Mojave Desert (1567)
Cave dwellings in the Mojave Desert, early 1900s miner's homes. Some of these miner's "condos" even had car garages, and many had stove pipes for cooking.
~~~~~
This is a real night photo. In addition to the natural light from the moon, I illuminated the inside and outside of the cave dwellings with a handheld flashlight while the shutter of the tripod-mounted camera was open. Feel free to share using the share function.
