Description

The road to the Race Track in Death Valley is almost thirty miles of rough rocks and wash areas after the paved one ends. I do like how difficult it is to get here, but wow its rough and beautifully desolate!

For me, I wanted to immerse myself into an all night shooting spree to show this weird expanse of mysterious desert in a different way. “Moonland” incorporated a fusion of exposures to capture the still image (with an LED lighted tent) and an experimental camera movement during shutter release to create the moon-trail. A moving exposure and a still exposure fused together. When I look at this photograph it accurately captures the still, cool, immense and super quiet place as I experienced it standing there in the middle of nowhere - bathed in shifting moonlight.
