Full Moon Hiking

Location: Rainbow Basin, CA / Settings: F5.6, ISO 100, 317 seconds

For this shot I used my trusty Canon 6D - (here's a pretty awesome bundle deal) coupled with my 24-70mm lens (another pretty sweet bundle deal). This was the last shot on my camera for the night - the battery died immediately after the shutter closed.

I used TCB's RGB light-pen for this illustration taken in the middle of the desert under a full moon shortly after the lunar eclipse. Here's a killer DIY tutorial on how to make an RGB light-pen for yourself.

Deep within Rainbow Basin, a ridge-line carves across the edge of the hillside. A new Light Fossil walks beneath.

An interesting place in terms of geology - colorful layers to be seen on all the hillsides.

This spot is difficult to get to if traveling by car - 4wd recommended! Huge rocks toward the last third of the loop, we had to turn back in our sedan for fear of getting stuck.

A closer look at one of the most colorful formations. If you're ever headed from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, you might want to stop here if you have a higher clearance vehicle - it's worth a look.
