Into the night

Photograph by Lorenzo Menendez,
Location: California Desert
Date: July 23, 2011

Camera: Nikon D300
Focal Length: 10.5mm
Aperature: f/4.5
ISO: 200
Exposure: 355.5 sec (5.9 min)

Note: Not able to sleep, Lorenzo Menendez woke in the middle of the night during his stay in a desert in California. He used a headlamp, 2 flashlights and many trips back and forth on the tracks to produce this awesome image. I love the blue lighting to go along with the moon. Very nice image!

Tip: The shutter speed (exposure) of 355.5 seconds allowed Lorenzo to pace up and down the tracks with his lights in his hand. Over a period of about 6 minutes, you have this electric shot. When doing a longer exposure shot, a tripod is needed to avoid blurriness.
