March 2, 1994
This image was made with a 24mm lens. First, the shutter was opened and the foreground arch was focused on and rendered with an orange filtered flash @ f/16, then, I walked through the arch to the left and rendered the inside edge of it with a magenta-filtered flash, then shifted the focus to infinity, opened up the lens to f/2.8, and walked 30 paces to the west and rendered the mid-ground rocks with a blue-filtered flash. Ths shutter was never closed during the 10 minute exposure.
As you can see, the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, left quite an impression on me!
