Light painted granite rock with a colored gel flash created the golden glow on this rock arch in the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California. A moonless sky filled with stars and the faint mily way reside above the landscape.
The Alabama Hills outside of Lone Pine, California are a unique landscape filled with granite rock formations and natural stone arches. On a moonless night, the stars were plentiful, and I framed the north star, Polaris in one of the arch's openings. Close to two and a half hours of star trails comprised this landscape photo.
A small cascade flows into an alpine lake in the 20 Lakes Basin near Mammoth. The sunset filled the sky with warm light and a long shutter speed showed teh movement in the stormy clouds.
