This has been my favorite actual burn of the man. The UFO structure beneath him burned forever and held its shape until the final roaring collapse. Pretty incredible. We watched at the very back of the crowd on top of an RV, away from the madness and the heat.
This power plant with the last sunset light behind it reminded me of a ship or oil tanker at sea…combined with the black of the passing storm and night already encroached, I loved the atmosphere of it and the feeling of foreboding.
Or, it may have been before… I forget. This was one of the sexy ladies in the burlesque troop I did a few shows with back in New Mexico. The exposure in here was hard – and I didn’t get a nice clear focus either. Still cool because of the subject, I think.
I took a bunch of shots of the sky as it changed, I must have 10 totally different skies in 10 minutes. I love the mountains of New Mexico- and when my mom pointed out her whirlygig, it made the perfect silhouette. Silhouettes have always been something I was artistically drawn to- I paint them, photograph them, am endlessly fascinated by them.
Finally processing some fall images from a trip to NM- makes me look forward to spring! I love the colors, I have a few others with close ups of insects that I’ll have to post as well.
The dust storm grew behind, metal rattling and voices howling. Before we turned tail against the angry stinging sand, a train rumbled by, the empty windows of this abandoned place staring desolate through the flashes of space between cars.
Miss gorgeous loves to pose- I named both of my dogs after gods since it’s so easily transposed. Nyx is the little-known Greek goddess of the night…a fitting name I’d say. I used a great Photoshop action for her eyes (from thepioneerwoman.com), a few tweaks to the raw files, and there we go.
It is pretty amazing how many photos it took before I figured out how to capture the lens flare AND keep the exposure light enough to see the leaves. I’d like to see it a little brighter still, but love the beautiful golden color + light. I’m a-lernin.
Nature takes back what belongs to her. It doesn’t take as long as you might imagine. I amped up the saturation slightly on this one, but it really is this pink. See the sandstone in the background that brought the color to the asphalt?
