This portrait of an antique pickup truck was created in the parched Nevada desert. It was light painted to set off the many details of its utilitarian design as well as its charming character caused by time, the searing sun, and frequent dusty winds. The setting moon provides rich backlighting on both the subject and desolate landscape. The rugged hills and canyon below provide a frame of reference for where this truck lived and worked. The cold moonlight, turquoise truck, and blue sky convey a tranquil mood.
