A number of people have mentioned that this looks like either a spaceship crash-landing on another world or something from Captain Nemo or some strange underwater craft exploring the sea.

Along The Highway To Anywhere (5065)
An old Coca Cola truck in the Mojave Desert underneath the starry skies. This reminded me instantly of drinking ice-cold Coca Cola on hot humid days in the Midwest when I was a kid, holding the cold glass bottle against my head or neck occasionally to cool off. As a kid, this was my favorite drink, sort of funny since I never drink it now. "Along the Highway to Anywhere" is a 1949 Coca Cola slogan, and I thought it might go well for describing this Old Town Bottling Company truck.
I lit the truck from several different angles with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 light painting device. This was with a night photography trip with George Loo, Tim Little, and Steve McIntyre, exploring the abandoned areas in the desert. Also, I'm rarely "heavy-handed" with post-processing, but upon returning home and looking at this image, I kept wanting to remove a large white van parked in back of the truck, which was very distracting to me. My Photoshop skills aren't super advanced, but thankfully I received "a little help from my friends", and collectively, the final image is a bizarre amalgamation of someone who didn't want to be named but contributed immensely, Mike Cooper, and me. Thank you, friends, and to Mike Shelton and everyone else who reached out to help.
