Bodie State Park - Stamp Mill
This is the main room where the gold stamping took place in the Bodie Stamp Mill. The light in here is very dark and the last exposure I took was a full one minute long. Combining that with several others which took almost as long and I think I was in here about five minutes. This shot would not have been possible if I hadn't been given permission to stay behind and set up my tripod. For one, the number of people on the tour blocked the view and the platform we were standing on moved so easily it would not have been possible to take a long exposure. I attempted to capture this room in the past without a tripod and the results were a disaster. Fortunately, everything came together on this trip and I got the shot I was looking for.
