This photograph was made during a night photography trip to Joshua Tree National Park. I was wearing a headlamp with a red LED and carrying a green handheld laser. I strolled through the scene from the right to the left, pointing the laser at the ground. It took several tries before I got what I wanted. Sony a7R II, Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD. Exposure: 30 sec., ƒ/4, ISO 4000.
