Giant Marble Rocks light painted at night in Joshua Tree National Park.

Here is a location that has been shot so many times at Joshua Tree National Park. I searched around on the internet for a shot at night and surprisingly I found nothing similar so if you find the same image somewhere I would love to have a link. It was taken at the end of the last Light Painting Workshop I lead here. Had a student hitting the shutter while I painted a shot for myself after they were all done shooting theirs. It only took 30 seconds and it was nowhere near bed time otherwise I think they would of minded. Anyhow, the shot was inspired by a composition Jack Dykinga has on his website. I sure hope we don't end forgetting about those famous photographers that don't hang out on the internet. If you don't know him look him up. Don't know if he was the first to shoot it but it's part of what drew me here.
