Found this deserted shack along the turquoise trail in New Mexico just outside of Madrid. I decided I wanted to paint it with light so I went to a craft store and bought colored plastic and several cheap flashlights from a hardware store. Then I convinced my mom and sister to go back a few nights later and help me with the "painting". We had a great time but it was a little spooky out there in the pitch black of night.

This was about a 3 minute exposure. Canon 1DS Mark II, 16-35mm L. Tungsten wb.
