Flashlight Painting

Death Valley, California

It's difficult to convey in pictures the feeling of being out on the dunes in the dark, and among these scraggy tree people. Nature cooperated
in every way, providing us with no end to whispy clouds and stars as background. It was very hard to leave, and not stay until dawn shooting.

This is a wonderful image. They truly are "Tree People". Fantastically lit.

This one oozes ambience and mood. I guess is does not get better than this, and yes, I know the feeling, especially as the night cools down quickly and the heat abandons its grip to the soft whisper of the cooler night! V

I can only imagine how it must've been to be there at that time, it must've been magical.

These are the special moments that fill ones' soul. When the world around gets too loud your subconscious will spirit you back to this moments. Thanks for sharing Sandi. Warm regards John

Absolutely lovely. Yes, sometimes it is hard to leave such a beautyful place.

The flashlight was a great idea. I love how you refer to them as "tree people." I'm sure you felt the presence of spirits in a place like this.
