Sand Speeder Bike with Sand Scout

Little known fact: The 74-Z speeder bikes were tested for use on Tatooine, but determined impractical due to sand reacting fiercely to the bikes' repulsor lift field.


More speed with some black framing.


I have tried to photograph the speeder bikes so many times. Since I felt I couldn't get them to look good among plants & trees I decided to shoot one on sand. Problem solved.

    This is so awesome! I love everything about it, but the blue tint that the whole shot has makes it.

    I wish I could use this as my background, but it's too small for my 1280x800 desktop. =( Is there any way that you can upload a larger size somewhere?

    That's a really well thought out shot with a lot of action. How were you able to get the sand/cornflour in motion while capturing this shot?
  • Andreas Halstensen 3y

    This is my favorite of yours! How did you give the flour that "sandy" color? Photoshop?
