Photo #N12-21

Atolia Mine #1

For three nights of my US road trip I met up with night photographer Troy Paiva to do some shooting in Southern California. Troy and I were driving around scouting the Mojave Desert for locations when we stumbled across a night photographer's dream! This mine sits abandoned off highway 395 south of Red Mountain, California. The site was huge and loaded with atmospheric old buildings and equipment. In fact it was such an excellent location that we returned the following night to shoot some more. Differing sky conditions afforded new photo opportunities each night!
