~Cold, Quiet Night~
This image is as much a rendition of a wonderful quiet night in the desert as it is a testament to the positive effects of insomnia. I have not slept through a night in close to twenty years. The night had always been my sanctuary and the darkness my friend. Setting up the camera in the last light of the day, I eagerly awaited the setting of the moon to begin a five-hour exposure of this beautiful tree.
