Long exposure, night image of Shiprock, New Mexico with star trails and moonlight in the desert.

Midnight Solitude

Shiprock, New Mexico

Shiprock (or, The Winged Rock to the Navajo) is an absolutely stunning volcanic monadnock rising more than 1500 feet above the desert floor in far northwest New Mexico. I hiked several miles at night to this spot; the half moon provided enough illumination that I walked without any artificial light. This photo is a compilation of 22 exposures, blended to show the rotation of the earth. At the center of rotation (in the top, right quadrant) is the north star, around which all other stars appear to rotate. The illumination on Shiprock is entirely moonlight. This was a truly magical (if spooky) night. I didn't encounter a single person.
