Taken from a group of Hoodoo near the shore of Mono Lake, the strange land looked like other planet.

I arrived here late after a long drive from San Francisco via Tioga pass of Yosemite National Park, missed the last light. There was only me and my friend in the dark and cold night waiting for the rising of milkyway. Hot chocolate made by my lovely friend made me feel not so cool. If you were there in the night you would feel like me, fearing of the horror atmosphere made by the shadow of strange rock formation.

This is a single shot that I tried to practice light painting on the rock by only my head lamp. I took many shots until the result was appreciated.
