Bisti Badlands
In reply to Rriley, May 27, 2012

Telephoto shots done with Olympus E-PL1 + m.Zuiko 40-150. Wide shots done with Panasonic GH2 + Zuiko 11-22. Post processing done with LR4.

Last time I was in the Bisti Badlands, I was unable to find a feature which photographers call the "egg factory", because I had the wrong GPS coordinate. It was a difference of only a few hundred feet, but with the winding canyons and the small size of the features in this area that was enough of a margin to never see it. But I found it this time, the night of the eclipse.

There was an unusual turnout of visitors to the area. Usually the entire area gets about 10 visitors a day. Some were here viewing the eclipse. Some were just on their way from somewhere to somewhere else and happened across the Bisti wilderness. While the sun was still up hardly a minute went by without someone asking someone else to get out of their light. ISO 1600, 1/25 sec at 150mm with image stabilization handheld, I'm not displeased with the E-PL1's performance here.

And to round out the next morning before I packed up my tent and headed out (the dawn light was terrible so I didn't get anything else before the sun came up)

For more information, I have a writeup on the Bisti Badlands here:
