How the Photo was Taken

This image was made with the Ricoh Pentax K-1 camera and the Pentax 15-30mm lens at 21mm wide. The exposure was 30 seconds at F8, and the ISO was 6400. I used a warm LED flashlight to paint highlights and build contrast on the petroglyphs of the Eagle and Desert Bighorn Sheep. Processed in Lightroom and PhotoShop CC.
