Notes

This was accomplished with a single press of the shutter release. All of the components of the image were captured at one time. There is no faked sky or time-shifted foreground; no Photoshop was used.

Description

I got up at 12:30, drove for a couple of hours, hiked about a mile onto the Racetrack Playa, set up a light, focused, and hit the shutter release. A little post-processing, and this was the result!

Thank goodness there's video evidence of how these rocks move and make these tracks. Maybe now people can stop stealing the "magic rocks"?
