Blue Barracks

Blue Barracks ::::: Wendover AFB, Utah

Abandoned WWII barracks at Wendover AFB (Interstate 80 at the NV/UT state line) in the last hour before dawn.  The previous evening we had been chased back to the car by a howling wind/dust storm that made shooting impossible, so we crossed back into Nevada where the big shiny casinos are and had a relaxed steak dinner and few fear and loathing moments among the hammered crackers and chain-smoking old-geezers huffing oxygen from portable tanks, pawing at the quarter slots.  At 3AM the wind died down enough that our tripods weren’t gonna blow away, so we headed back out to get a few shots off before daylight.  Blue and purple gelled LED flashlight during a 4-minute exposure.
