Weathered Space II

I did a little light painting with the remaining battery from my headlamp in this photo... seemed like a good use for it.

How this shot came to be.. I was tired, hungry, lost in the desert in the dark, with a dying headlamp, in a completely unknown area to me. A recent rain had washed away signs of the main trails, and I was trying to locate a particular toadstool (a rock). After coming a little too close to a subsided slope that included a shear drop of a ~50' I decided to retreat. While "running away" I ended up catching a silhouette against the horizon, and it turned out to be the very rock I was trying to find.

This shot was taken Halloween night this year, 2013
