This is the "Kill Bill" Church from Quentin Tarantino's movie, featured in a scene where Bill had attempted to dispatch Uma Thurman's character in a bloody hail of gunfire.

This was taken early morning on the return trip from photographing the Milky Way all night in Trona Pinnacles. Because there is a single strong porch light on, I had to compensate for that by "light painting" the rest of the church not illuminated by the light as well as the Joshua Tree in front. And this takes time, so consequently, it's a 30 second exposure.
