This is a long exposure of the Mobius Arch.

These ancient rocks at the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine are inspirational to photograph. I must have taken over 500 shots in all.

This capture was done at midnite with no moon in the sky, ISO 200 for 17 minutes with the Aperture wide open.

This picture of the Mobius Arch is showing a white capped Mount Whitney in the center of it's opening.

    It's a beautiful image, Matt. It does remind me of that time portal in an old episode of Star Trek. Did you "light paint" on the rock? R
