Light trails around a tree in Joshua Tree National Park

Shot on Canon EOS Rebel XSi, F3.5 @ 20 seconds

This photo was taken on a climbing trip in Joshua Tree. I purchased a remote for my camera, but never spent much time playing with it prior to this. I had a mini tripod with me, and everyone had headlamps, so we decided to play around with light painting. It ended up being a lot of fun… I’m pretty sure we spent over 2 hours just running around with the headlamps and experimenting with exposure lengths. Several of these shots turned out pretty nicely, but this one was my favorite.

Here are the other shots from that night:
