Wow, great story, Jean -- and even better photo. Very unique under the stars by moonlight.

These are great pictographs, nicely captured using the moonlight.

Where's Erich von Däniken when you need him? Interesting details across the rock face - and a great story to go with it.

Before hiking out to this location, I let the dogs have some water and a run. Wouldn't you know, some guy pulls up and I think, "Crap! Now I won't have it to myself!" This actually worked out for the best, first because it was Daniel Pivnick, a Flickr contact whom I hadn't met before, and second because he's a tall guy and was able to help me in getting off of this rock. This was something I realized I would not have done alone in the dark, especially having to jump to the ground with frozen toes after spending a night doing star trails! So thanks again, Daniel for your good company and assistance and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

We had the light of the full moon, but not having been here previously, I wasn't sure how that would play out. We would have needed to stay a few more hours (neither of us willing to do in the bitter cold) to get the full face of the rock in moonlight, so light painting was necessary. I also realized my 16mm was not enough to capture the entire rock face, so on my star trails shots I tried shooting both for the rock and the stars. I'll try to get to that one soon, but it is going to take a bit of work!

Until then I hope you like this means a lot to me that I was able to get here at all and witness this priceless bit of history. Hope you're having a good week and thanks as always for stopping by for a look!
