This alien car seems to have took a wrong turn.

Outside the historic mining town of Goldfield, NV, in a desert dotted by Joshua Trees, you can see a field of old cars that are wildly painted and jammed into the ground at unlikely angles. This is the International Car Forest of the Last Church, created by Michael “Mark” Rippie…

A bus, jammed into the ground at a strange angle, somehow manages to stay upright. Outside the historic mining town of Goldfield, NV, in a desert dotted by Joshua Trees, you can see a field of old cars that are wildly painted and jammed into the ground at unlikely angles. This is the International Car Forest of the Last Church,…

Goldfield Days, Antique Car Nights: Ghost Towns of Nevada

Goldfield Days, Antique Car Nights: Ghost Towns of Nevada

 Now almost a ghost town, Goldfield once was the largest city in Nevada, a boom town fueled by the lust for gold. Many rusting cars, stamp mills, and equipment can be seen, and one can get a map of the historic sites almost anywhere in town. The inhabitants that remain are kind but don’t mince words, the sort of people who…

Antique subway station entrances from what appears to be from a London subway station. What are they doing here? I don’t mind. I love it. More fun stuff to photograph here in the almost-ghost town of Goldfield,  once was the largest city in Nevada, a boom town that was fueled by the lust for gold. Light painting photos of this…

Fasten your seat belts. If you can find ‘em.

How this bus stays up, I’m not sure. I came up here Thursday evening. There were two photographers, Matt and Justin, already here, but they left shortly afterwards for Bodie ghost town in California. I immediately began shooting, a bit dissatisfied with the shots I had taken the previous night, as the moon was blotted out by…

A man from the Gujurat region of India by way of the Bay Area contemplates Delicate Arch underneath the amazing Milky Way, rising from the southeast and drifting right toward the south. If you stay still enough, I swear you can actually perceive the stars drifting, a special stillness that we don’t often have opportunity to…

The enormous – and rather unusual – Double Arch made a brief apperance in an Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie. The larger opening has a span of 148 feet (45 m) and a height of 104 feet (32 m). This is a wide angle view looking over and through the larger of the two spans toward the Milky Way to the south. You can see…

Depending on what angle, Balanced Rock may appear as a ball on an bottle or the open lid of a garbage can, opening underneath the Milky Way as we are facing more or less south on a moonless night. What we’ll all agree upon is that it is amazing, as some estimate that the 55 foot tall sandstone boulder topping the stone pedestal…

Feeling like an explorer on a new world in Arches National Park, Utah, watching the Milky Way drift toward the south as night progresses. The odd rocky formations in the distance are the rocks near the Windows Arches and Turret Arch. You can see the headlight trail of a car leaving this area. As you can see, the archway is…
