They’re among us and learning to climb 👽🧗🏻♀️ Welcome to the Area 51 climbing gym, 36.60434 N, 118.12652 W, where the sunrises, sunsets, stars, mountains, and rock formations are most transcendent. Here’s @hyst_erica, anchored in at the top of “Burnt Penis” 5.7, looking like one of Sid’s mutant toys because she moved her head during the shot (see Toy Story and zoom in). I’ve been wanting to climb at night for some time now, but usually beers are involved or we’re too tired to climb more. Not this time! Super stoked how this shot turned out. To the left you can even see a faint bit of the Milky Way under a bright waxing gibbous. Shot with my @canonusa 6d body and @rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens, 13 seconds, ISO 2500. #nightclimbing#rockclimbing#alabamahills#easternsierra#climbingpicturesofinstagram#californiaadventure#rockformation
This shit reminds me of what @krewfoo55 preaches
Why y’all gotta act like you don’t know each other if you fucking with on social
Like, don’t be scared
This girl probably intimidates the fuck out of a lot of fuck,
But she dope as fuck

Long exposures only
Something about night photography. Meeting up with the homies, scouting locations during the day, sitting on google earth for days at a time, making sure alignment is just perfect, yelling at the guy next to you to turn off his red headlamp, falling on your face in the dark, having some good laughs, losing the weeks sleep, waking up grumpy as hell, putting your eggs in the cupboard, zoning out your wife when she tells you to do something, ignoring your kids, all those things make up an image so worth the work. But this, I just went in my files in 3 minutes hit my CBD pen and voila. Composite 🤷🏽♂️ how much easier can it get.
The other night we set up camp right along the beach & built a fire as the sun went down. I had spent the evening scouting the perfect angles for Milky Way shots only to realize I brought the wrong tripod plate & couldn’t use my tripod at all. I was so bummed, but woke up at midnight after the moon set to see the stars anyhow. The waves were glowing blue from bioluminescence & as we walked along the beach the sand lit up with each step. I propped my camera on a rock on the ground to get this shot. It’s a single image with no photoshop & minimal color correction. In the left corner you can see the ocean glowing blue like I mentioned earlier. Not as epic as the shots I had dreamt up but still glad to capture a little of the memory.
Bioluminescent blues. I captured this image last night around midnight as the moon was settling into the Pacific. The blue color in the water is the result of a natural phenomena known as bioluminescence, which basically means, natural light emitted by living critters. In this case, plankton. While your naked eye will not pick up the blues as vividly as the camera sensor, there was a surreal glow to the crashing whitewater of the waves that made for an otherworldly scene. I'm endlessly amazed at the incredible beauty that surrounds us. Thanks for shooting with me @rizzlife. Let’s do it again soon.
Tried to shoot here on Sunday but had work the next day so had to leave before the right time to get this shot. So glad that I made the effort to come back and shoot last night.
With @phil_broadbent and @matthudsonphoto we left Sydney just after 9 and arrived at Lincoln's Rock around 2230. Then just a small climb up into this cave in the cliff face. Such a magical place to watch the stars spin round 😍
