When traveling to remote locations I strive to:
1. Make use of every moment of light possible.
2. Look for opportunities to capture a new take on a “common” subject.
This photo was taken during a transition of dusk and optimal morning light at the Racetrack. Not wanting to sit idle during this time I began experimenting with a variety of in camera effects to see if I could create something interesting and perhaps surreal. Personally I’m fond of the extension of the texture of the playa to the top of the mountains. I thought about converting this to B&W, but I ended up applying a mild split-tone to highlight the cool blue tones of the ambient light and warm yellow brown of the lake bed.
