Hide and go sneak

Location: Sedona, AZ / Settings: F.10, ISO 400, 256 seconds

Gear: Canon 6D24-70mm LensManfrotto 190x Tripod, Night-Writer kit, Rosco color gels, and Remote shutter.

For this shot I had to take advantage of these trees - they seemed to be planted about three feet away from each other in the most meticulous manner.

There's a full moon just beyond those hills in the distance - it lit up the sky just right to give this image a good deal of depth. 

If you haven't seen my video on how to draw one of these light-skeleton dudes, check it out here for a step by step video demonstration - created with color-tipped LED light.

I colored the trees using red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, and deep blue rosco gels - casted light from just behind the camera.

Sedona Stegosaurus

Location: Sedona, AZ / Settings: F.9, ISO 100, 320 seconds

For a shot like this, you'll need a good pair of mostly dark-colored water shoes. After a few unnecessary scrapes and slips you will understand why - I use mine often and I'm always glad to have them on hand for situations like this.

I used a Canon 6D for this shot along with my 24-70mm lens, Manfrotto 190x tripodRemote shutter release and Night-Writer light-pen.

The main challenge here was lining up the shot and getting the colorful sail in the right place - which took a few attempts. I wanted the full reflection in view, so I placed the tripod and camera up as tall as it could go about 25 feet out from my new light-fossil - smack dab in oak creek.

Spectral Triceratops Passes Time

Location: Sedona, AZ / Settings: F.16, ISO 1600, 217 seconds

Gear: Canon 6DRokinon 14mm LensManfrotto TripodRemote Shutter-release, and Proto Night-Writer.

For this shot, I was trying to capture part of the landscape in Sedona from Schnebly Hill, but was having difficulty because of the clouds blocking the moonlight. 

I opted for a high ISO and high Fstop to achieve this look, I like the way a long-exposure can capture slow movements - you can start to see some patterns emerge in the way the clouds flow, like an upside-down river.
