Masthead shot

This masthead photograph was taken on a trip Ken and I took to Utah a couple years back. It is a shot of the solar reflection plant in the Mojave. Two things to note about the shot; it was actually taken at four o'clock in the afternoon and I took it while shooting out the car window at seventy miles per hour.

I reduced the exposure so that the bright light from the solar towers could dominate the shot. I kind of like it and the black and white version is pretty nice too. Popped the color and vibrance and made it a bit more graphic for the masthead. I could pick it apart for some sniggling little reasons but why should I? Seems to work.

It's great. We were going downhill in the Rav4, so it was more like 80 mph :-)
