The Martian Portal

I've seen this location documented a lot over the years and wanted to add my own spin on the subject, so I brought my light painting gear with me (several stage gels and a maglight flashlight). In order to achieve this effect I did a thirty second exposure on a full moon night. I first painted the foreground red, then ran and jumped into the pit to hide behind the brick and paint the interior green. Then, I had the awful job of hiking back through the rugged steep terrain in the dark of night to get to my car.

    Stunning shot.
