Another fantastic abandoned farm, loaded with quiet mystery, out in the Big Valley.
The plywood and fiberglas cockpit of yesterday’s Junior Cyclops at Eagle Field. Wanted to highlight the wasp nest above the windshield–they were all over the place. In fact, I got the first wasp sting of my life at Eagle Field. Not a fan. Blue, lime and red from the Protomachines light during a 273-second exposure.

Back to 21st century work today. I still have a few images of Snoopy, the derelict B-58 on the fringes of Edwards AFB to post. Shot earlier this summer, after slipping onto the base, undiscovered. 30-minutes of pure full m0on light and star trails.
