Bombay Beach

So last night I was up late like always looking for a new place to shoot when I ran across some photos from this place called Bombay Beach. It's located on the east shore of the Salton Sea at two- hundred and twenty-eight feet below sea-level. It was quite the adventure to get here. I drove a total of 350 miles for about 20 minutes of light. From Huntington Beach to Palm Springs to Bombay Beach, and then to San Diego.. Really, it was to scout for tomorrows full moon. I'm thinking about starting my own seminars, but 1st I need locations. Would any of you be willing to join my seminar?


There's a lot more to the story, just give me a few... I need to eat something...


After getting lost, and missing most of the sunset, I finally found the rocks I was looking for, by this time the moon was rising & it was getting dark. The fog rolled in and the atmosphere changed dramatically, so I went from F11, 10 second exposures to F5.6 @ 30 seconds which still needed more time to expose. I posted this shot because it was the last from the night before I got spooked thinking the Loch Ness monster was going to pop out and eat me. Maybe it was the ghost town I drove through to get here? I just had a creepy feeling the whole time I was shooting. Hopefully tomorrow I get more time to be patient. =)


BTW~ This shot is SOOC besides the border, looking back at it now, it needs a little curve adjustment?
