Daniel's Pictures

The Desert at Night (near Shangri La Ranch)

I hiked out of Shangri La Ranch at about 4am to get these photos.  Exposure times range from 15 to 30 seconds.

What I found to be the most interesting is that I was naked and dry, yet my sarong and cloth carrying bag were completely soaked with night dew.  I stored the camera outdoors in a sealed bag before going out so it avoided condensation.

This is my only hike ever where I'm not posting a picture of me, mostly because between the night dew, the early hours and the photo flash, my picture left me looking something like an albino version of satan with jiffy-pop hair.
