This image was made in Mesquite Sand Dunes. No trickery here, all in camera. The exposure was 40 minutes to capture the star trails. The foreground light was created during the exposure by taking my camera flash, walking around and flashing it. The light on me was made by Travis shining a flashlight on me at various intervals of rotation.
Technical: Canon 1DsMarkII, 16-35mm superwide zoom @16mm, ISO 100, 40 minute shutter speed, in camera noise reduction.
