While camping in Oliver Lee Memorial State Park, Kurt and I went and explored Dog Canyon in the Sacramento Mountains. We thought it would be a good setting for a UFO crash scene. This scene was directly inspired be an artist illustration of the debris field from 1947 and Kurt felt compelled to recreate his own version of the events.
One morning we set out in the backcountry to shoot the scene.The sky was partly cloudy and the air was cool. It took us a very long time to navigate the prickly cacti and razor sharp thorn bushes. Eventually we found a wash that was conducive to our miniature photo shoot, the soil was sandy and free of bushes.
Kurt started to arrange the scene. I had to get really creative about how I would photograph Kurt because there were some challenges I had to deal with such as uneven terrain and tight spaces. Not only did we get some good images, we got in a good hike as well!
