    Went up to Black Rock Desert Playa.
    The most unforgiving, hostile, but beautiful remote place I've ever been.
    My intervalometer did not work correctly for the star trail photos. I had it set on 25 sec exposure, with 1 second interval, for 201 shots. Shooting JPG Fine. It took about 15 photos and stopped. tried several times, and gave up. Then I set up the camera differently and got the one below. and some of the other to show the desolation during the day. In case anyone is wondering, thats my ol' 85 yota.

    Dang! Thanks :)
    Yeah its basically where Burning Man is, but a little deeper on the Playa. Also, during Burnin Man, no vehicles are allowed to drive, and there are all sorts of other rules. So this is a wee bit different, and a lot more free...
    Its a trek for sure, but well worth it.

    Very nice on the MW shot, and a WELL-deserved POTM nomination! Nice work overall, which is what I've come to expect from you no matter what subject matter that you address with your camera.
