Artist's Description

The Bisti is a 45,000 acre National Wilderness that is an ancient seabed and is now full of hoodoos, striated rock formations, petrified wood and dinosaur bones, and other examples of tortured geography of the most surreal sort. The Bisti is located in Northwest New Mexico, near the Four Corners town of Farmington.

On this occasion, six of us hiked in to the Bisti just before sundown, on the night of the full moon. We packed in a scant two miles, but the undulating and unforgiving landscape (and the frequent photo breaks) made it seem much further. Along the way, we encountered another group of Bisti chroniclers led by Carole Devillers, frequent contributor to National Geographic magazine and one-time guide for Jacques Cousteau.

Pentax K20D, 1/3 second @ F5.6, ISO 200, 160mm

Using a Scott Kelby technique, I shot the moon separately. Then, in Paint Shop Pro XII, I copied an adjustment layer and converted that to B&W and then to infrared. Then I reduced the opacity to let in a little color from the bottom layer.
