New on 500px : Cosmic Cliff Dwelling by shanemcdermott by shanemcdermott

Definitely view this one on black!

I shot this image a few years back but wanted to share it here. This was difficult to execute and took three different trips to catch favorable night skies and learn how to light the kiva and pit in a way that looked somewhat natural.

Ten flash strobes were used to light the overhang and floor of the kiva while my coleman lantern was used to light the pit. However, this is a single image shot at 2.8 at iso 3200

BTW this is a somewhat remote location within Canyonlands NP, but will not soon be disclosed by the rangers if asked.
