Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

Long exposures and slow nights


This is a spot I camp often near a place I go to see sidewinders and mojaves. The rocky hillside, in the daylight, is out-of-place volcanic rock. It’s very different than anything for many miles around, and animals I find near it tend to be on the odd side (like a blacktail with bright yellow eyes, among others). This particular night wasn’t spectacular snake-wise, but I did get to play with a new camera for awhile and get some shots of stars.
