The Air Force Station

Dusk Pano


The Sinking Red Eye


In the summer of 2015 I wandered into this wide open former Air Force station on a Nevada mountain top for an exceptional night of shooting. I’ve tried to return several times since, only to find black, government-issue Suburbans parked up there that scared me off. The last visit I slipped in the fence and triggered an alarm that scrambled the sheriff’s department. So I’m done here, but I’ll always have that night when I had the place to myself.
iPhone pano at sunset, you can see my other camera set up for the 2nd shot. I got pounded by that rainstorm later that night and did a lot of interior work. A full night of shooting to come . . .
