Stepping Into the Past

Building interiors in the Wild West "Ghost town" of Bodie have been mostly untouched for 50 years, since the State Park assumed ownership in the early 1960s. When we access the buildings today, we're careful not to disturb even the dust!

We've added registration for interior access to Bodie starting at only $245, and nights starting at $325 in 2015! We'll have four sessions for interior access in 2015: May 24, June 13, July 11, and August 15, and five for nights: May 24, June 13, July 11, August 15 and October 11-12.

Bodie Night and Interior Access Sessions, Starting at $245!

Our first Bodie workshop of the year is coming up next month! We have just a few spaces left in the combined workshop for both, so we're opening up registration for a separate night workshop or morning interior access session in Bodie on May 24 for people who want one or the other:

New Light Painting Tool in the Bag
I spent a week in March getting to know the ProtoMachines LED2 light in Death Valley National Park and Nevada. I used it under the Milky Way, with star trails, light painting subjects near and far, with and without moonlight.

I'll use the LED2 more over the next 6 week to practice for our light painting session in Bodie on the night of May 24. Currently we're offering the night bundled with interior access earlier that morning, but we'll soon offer them separately as well to fill the last few spaces:

First Results With a ProtoMachines LED2 Light

Star Trails Over Pliocene Clay Lake Bed

Star Trails over erosion patterns in Pliocene-era bentonite clay in a former lake bed in rural Nevada.

The eroded hills were partially lit by the moon, but also illuminated using a ProtoMachines LED2 light set to approximately the same color temperature as moonlight.

Water in the Desert
Unfortunately this is salty water, so it's not a place that anyone would be stopping for a drink. The 20 mule teams which used to haul borax out of Death Valley carried their own massive tanks of water for the mules.

I'm posting more to my pages lately, to see if there can be signs of life on that side of the G+ platform

Catch the Milky Way in the Early Morning Hours This Month

The Milky Way rises over the Badwater Salt Flats in the early morning hours in late March.

This is one of several new photos I've added to my G+ pages +Jeff Sullivan Photography and +Death Valley Workshops.
