Desert Passage
Hi All, its been awhile since I've posted as life keeps getting in the way... I have a new batch of work I'm processing from Sierras and Death Valley where I spent the last week. This is one that caught my eye, a 2 minute exposure in the flats of Death Valley. Thanks for looking, and I'll post more in the upcoming days.

Hi Aaron, I was just taking successive two minute exposures while the sun was behind the clouds, because each time it came out the shot was blown. In this particular shot, it peaked from behind the clouds just over the mountain line for the last few seconds of the exposure so I got it all in one shot. I've been using my 10 stop ND more and more, it really opens up a lot of creative possibilities, and brings out a lot of light. Thanks for commenting.

then this must be a very gratifying image to you. 10stopND images are my fav to do... but the sucess rate is very hit and miss.... and you HIT! I have few few sunstar imagies with my 3.0ND... but none as good as this!
