Not Afraid of the Dark / by Catherine Slye

Serene desert landscapes captured with long exposures. Sony a7RIII + Zeiss Batis 2.8/18mm. Each image requires a long study allowing your eyes to adjust, you’ll be amazed at what you can see in the dark.

Images can be viewed on my Instagram page found here. I <3 planning a night outing, from the scouting locations and mapping routes to getting the timing figured out and then the finale of being out in the dark with my camera. And then it’s all over in about an hour. Capturing light and color out in the peace and solitude of the desert is something I never thought I’d cherish, but I do. Growing up in Wisconsin I loved going for car rides with my dad at twilight, watching the sky transition from day to night was always a thrill.
