Bodie Church Star Trails by Jeff Sullivan

"Bodie Church Star Trails" ~ © Jeff Sullivan (click to enlarge)
Our Photo of the Week (POTW) was taken by Jeff Sullivan at his last night photography workshop in the ghost town of Bodie, California. Jeff used a Canon 5D Mark III and the Canon 14mm f/2.8 L lens (30 seconds @ f/2.8. ISO 6400) to take a series of images that were "stacked" together. You can follow how he processed this image on The Landscape Photography Show (Episode 14) YouTube Video. (Jeff has three more night photography dates this year at Bodie.)

Personal History: Jeff was born in Massachussetts and lived 6 miles from Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond. He developed a deep appreciation for nature exploring nearby woods and waterways, and grew up hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and snorkeling the New England coast from Cape Cod to Maine. Upon moving to California in the 1970s Jeff was walking in the shadow of the Range of Light, in the footsteps of John Muir and Ansel Adams. He took up backpacking and 35mm photography in 1974.

Currently, Jeff is a landscape and nature photographer in Galen Rowell's beloved Eastern Sierra. He leads landscape photography workshops in some of the planet's most exotic landscapes. Jeff is also currently researching and writing a guidebook to California's most stunning landscape photography locations, to be published in early 2012 in Laurent Martres' excellent PhotoTripUSA series.

More of Jeff Sullivan's photography can be found on his website, 500px, and Flickr sites.

  1. Great Job! I appreciate your writing. Thanks for your detail info. Here I would like to suggest a safety tool.
    Raptorlite -The World’s Brightest Tactical Flashlight
    A tactical flashlight could be your most effective weapon when it comes to self-defense. If you’re under attack, you don’t want to hesitate for a second and by using the world’s brightest tactical light you ensure you can identify the assailant immediately and take appropriate action.
    Raptorlite is no ordinary flashlight. Our tactical flashlights are used by law enforcement officers and military personnel who need to use the brightest lights available on their weapons. A gun with a mounted Raptorlite allows the user to see their target clearly, even in the darkest conditions, and aim with complete accuracy.
    Using a handgun in low light can be a recipe for disaster. Not only are you likely to miss your intended target, but you are also at risk of injuring anyone who may wander in front of your path if you cannot see clearly. The best tactical flashlights light up the area like daylight so you can see exactly what your gun is pointing at.
    A tactical flashlight – your first line of defense
    But Raptorlite tactical flashlights don’t have to be mounted to a gun in order to be a great tool for self-defense. Attackers generally don’t like to be seen and just shining this super bright light at them may be enough to deter opportunistic attacks.
    If you’re planning to be out in an area that is not well lit, it makes sense to carry one of our compact LED flashlights with you. We’ve all been in situations where we feel unsafe walking in the street at night and for good reason – most attacks happen under cover of darkness. You have less chance of being mugged if there are no shadowy areas for attackers to lurk in and as the world’s brightest tactical flashlight Raptorlite can illuminate half a mile in front of you.
    Another simple but effective function of the Raptorlite tactical light is its ability to dazzle would-be attackers. As your first line of defense, shining this insanely bright light into the assailant’s eyes will disorient them and cause them to lose their vision for a few seconds, allowing you to escape or raise the alarm.
    If it comes to it, you can also use our tactical flashlights as a weapon if you are attacked and have no other method of self-defense. The aggressive attack bezel can be used to strike an attacker in the face before he can make advances.
    What is the best tactical flashlight?
    Our flashlights are compact, making them easy to carry on your person. They’re also rechargeable so there is no risk of running out of batteries, rendering your flashlight useless. As the world’s brightest tactical flashlight, the Raptorlite is three times brighter than the nearest competitor and also the best value, at a price you’ll find hard to believe.
    When it comes to your safety, there is really no excuse to settle for anything less than the best. By choosing a Raptorlite tactical LED flashlight, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are fully prepared in case of attack.
