Post your light painting landscapes

Well I will see if this thread goes anywhere. Any type of landscape image (and we can define that very loosely) where you use a flashlight or other light source to paint in a portion of the scene with light.

This was during a Saturday night opening at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, which is actually a native wildlife zoo and botanical garden. But I found this old ore train and used a flashlight (torch if you use British English) to light it up.

10 seconds, f13, iso 400, 5Dmark3 with 24-105L.

You did say you'd define it 'loosely,' so does steel wool count? :p ;D

This past weekend in Morro Bay, California:





Earlier this year in Utah:

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks very much Graham. I'm actually the model in the shots as no one else wanted to try it. I had another shooter stand in place so I could manually focus on the spot, and then would have someone press my shutter release for me as I spun. I did end up with a little hole in a jacket from the Utah shoot, and try to use hats/hoodies etc.

Cali_PH, I love your photos! Very nice work, I really like that kind of work! Keep them coming :)
 
Tonight at Tucson Mountain Park, Canon 5D4 and 24-70 f4L IS. Three different exposures at 30 seconds, needed because saguaro cacti were too far apart to light up in one exposure. Two cacti on far left were lit up in one shot, cactus and tree in middle were lit up in another shot, two cacti on right were lit up in third shot. Then a lot of tweaking in Photoshop Elements to balance it out and remove some headlights from a road on the distant mountain.
