'The Galactic Throne' - Light Painting, Trona Pinnacles
What a place. The Trona Pinnacles in California will send shivers down your spine.
During the day, its pleasantly odd. During a moonless night things take on another dimension and become downright eerie.
Needless to say though, we had fun dodging ant hills and looking for snakes. We saw a kit fox on the way home so that was a bonus.
To create this image I had to shoot about 10 different exposures while light painting each pinnacle and then the foreground.
Normally I remove the light streaks caused by my movement but I liked the way this light streak framed my model so I decided to leave it in.
I'll be publishing an article on this technique very soon so please join my mailing list if you'd like to know how it's done via my blog www.fototripper.com
