So, Jason H. and I are goin' Jeep cruisin' and photo'ing up the shore this Friday evening. We want to do super awesome shots of Jason on his bike. haha I'm bringing a couple of my super massive lights and portable power pack so there will be strobist fun, as well.

Two things:

1) Does anyone know of a trail (preferably steep) that is not closed in a lot by trees so I could get a shot with the sun just set behind him? Or maybe a high rocky bit on the shore?

2) Does anyone want to join us? You can jump in with either one of us...although my Jeep's sound system kicks Jason's Jeep's butt. ;P haha

okay, three things...

I shall bring snacks and beverages! If nothing else, come for the snacks. :D

The best place to go to do some offroading with good shots would probably be the offroad park in gilbert, you would have a lot of options in regards to composing the shot the way you want it.

The only real negative is the extremely boring drive to gilbert.

Ohh....I wasn't clear in my initial post. We want to take photos of Jason on a trail that allows bicycles...so just a narrow trail will do. The topless Jeeps are just a fun way of getting there. Jeep trails sound fun, too, but I don't think we're doing that this Friday, and I don't think we'll be going that far. :) Thanks, though, zerofourtwo! You should join us!

I would like to join, but i have to see what the wife has planned for me to do this weekend first.

I know of a couple different spots but i dont know well it would work considering im not exactly sure if the sun will be setting in the correct location. Look at my latest upload of the clouds from last night i have marked on the map where i took the photo, there is a giant hill there that is quite steep and would work great for what you are planning, assuming the sun sets in the direction you want.

I've been looking for places up Hwy 61 and there's nothing. Gooseberry has some trails, but nothing exciting. Tofte has some too, but I ain't gon drive that far. The city has all the good trails such as Hartley, Spirit Mountain, and Jay Cooke State Park. I bet we could find something in Two Harbors.

What kind of shoot are we going to do with you Brynn? Cause I ain't gon be the model the whole time!

top of harley should work... lots of rock faces to ride down with plenty of sky to play with. Might be a small hike to get the battery packs up there, but it's do-able.

*edit... i missed the up the shore mention. DOH!! SORRY.

Well, I'll be driving my Jeep with a **** ton of lumber down to Park Point.....

Nate: I forgot you guys are doing that on Friday. Do you guys need help setting up? I guess helping might be slightly more supportive of our fellow DPGers than driving around goofing off. :D

Ha, no it should be a quick set up, I hope : ) Weather permitting it will be a topless Jeep night afterwords though. Gotta follow that 2 day rule with a YJ.....

Jason: ARE YOU SURE? That you want to trick ride your bike down some steep rocky trail while people are taking shots at you?
Didn’t you learn anything when you went on your bike ride last Saturday? :)
I guess that old saying “got to get right back in the saddle” was made for you. :)

Oh yeah baby! I'm hoping I can even out the damage to my body. You should see my shoulder....it's turned out to be worse than my knee in the fact that it's still oozing. Even more disgusting is what my white tees are looking like at the moment. Ha! I mean....yuck!

Brynn....when and where shall we meet (unless you've decided to help Nate with the Park Point build)?
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 9 years ago
For anyone interested.....

6:30 PM at the McDonalds at the intersection of Skyline BLVD and I-35 (Near Spirit Mountain).

Be there or be square (unless of course you're helping with the set up of the park point fair.) In that sense...Brynn and I are the squares.

Rock on Skyline above Morgan Park

Might be a nice place to go for your photo shoot, it is located on West Skyline above Morgan park, the sun should set nicely in the background, Jason someone has already marked the spot where your supposed to crash [see photo]. I would have liked to join you and learn something about strobe lights etc but must go to a graduation, HAVE FUN!
