Why do we work until 4 am? To make pictures like this one.
Vince collects site data from the Faro long-range laser scanner at night. The scanner tends to work better at night, and the current nighttime weather in Caldera has been calm and with low wind. The lights from a truck passing by, along the Pan-American highway, created laser-like bolts in the background. This photo is from the same site as the previous ones from Dispatch 5, where we were using the Gigapan setup. (Photo Vince Rossi)
