This image involved painting the Egg Factory in the Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness with light after the sun had set and it was pretty dark. No worries...the light didn't stay on the eggs once I turned my flashlight off...The Egg Factory is a group of large eroded rocks that have fantastical shapes. It is best photographed after the sun has gone down and there are no shadows on the rocks. This means you must be prepared to find your way out across the desert in the dark which isn't too bad if you have a GPS or a compass. I shot this at the end of November 2012 and I feel it was well worth the effort involved...I hope you like my image as well. New Mexico is known as The Land of Enchantment and the Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness is certainly an example of that. The Bisti/De-Na-Zin is an incredible area to hike in and to photograph in as well. The shapes of the rock are other worldly as are the colors of the landscape. For the most part the terrain is easy to negotiate for the average hiker who is used to the outdoors. A GPS is very useful as are maps and other navigational tools. There is a good deal of information on the internet about this area and is useful before your visit to the area...Cheers Bob
