White and Green: White Hoodoos and Green Sky, not quite what your mind imagines in the SW USA. The green skies are from airglow, faint light emitted from the upper atmosphere at night. Much of the SW has red or tan rocks, but there are some areas where the erosion has worked it’s way down into beautiful white layers of rock. These particular hoodoos are large and relatively tightly packed for such large structures, making compositions somewhat difficult. There is little room to back up and you are very close to the hoodoos. As a result most of my images from here are with a 12mm focal length to include as much as possible. Even with the 12mm lens I had to do some compositions as small panoramas. Stacked image, 12mm, 15sec., f/2.8, ISO 6400. There is Low Level Lightning to accentuate the foreground rocks. See lowlevellighting.info if you want to know about this technique. In this instance I used a camera White Balance of 4200K and a Light panel Color Temperature of 4900K to render the colors as natural as possible. Cheers, Wayne
