This was a real unexpected and wonderful surprise at the end of a guided photographers tour in Monument Valley.

As last year I booked a guided tour at Phillips' Photography Tours (absolutely recommendable) and fortunately we got the same Indian guide "Tully" - a great guy! We - my twin brother and myself - were the only customers for that sunset tour and so we asked Tully to drive us to the most beautiful places that you cannot reach without a guide and ending at the Totem Poles for sunset...

We had a great tour with beautiful locations and wild horses and everything - except of a real sun...it was a bit too cloudy with somehow dizzy light and so we were a little bit disappointed to do not get THE sunset (you cannot plan this as you know...) The sun was almost gone - the clouds were gray...and we packed our tripods with cameras and walked back to the old Chevy 4wheeler when Tully suddenly stopped and pointed back to the Totem Poles - and unbelievable the clouds began to turn pink red!! We ran back with our equipment and had just a few minutes left to capture this unbelievable show...

I don't know what you think but I think this single photograph alone was worthwhile the whole tour - enjoy it my dear friends :-)

 

Das war eine wirklich unerwartete wunderschöne Überraschung am Ende einer geführten Foto-Tour im Monument Valley. Wie schon im letzten Jahr buchte ich eine Sunset-Tour bei Phillips' Photography Tours (absolut empfehlenswert) und glücklicherweise hatten wir auch noch den gleichen indianischen Führer "Tully" wie beim letzten Mal. Und da wir, mein Zwillingsbruder und ich, die einzigen Teilnehmer waren, fragten wir Tully, uns zu den schönsten Plätzen zu fahren, die man ohne Guide nicht besichtigen kann und am Ende den Sonnenuntergang an den Totem Poles zu fotografieren. Wir hatten eine tolle Tour mit wunderschönen Locations inklusive Wildpferden und so weiter - mit Ausnahme einer "richtigen" Sonne - es war ziemlich bewölkt und etwas diesig, so dass wir ein wenig enttäuscht waren, nicht DEN Sonnenuntergang an dieser tollen Location fotografieren zu können (man kann das halt nicht wirklich einplanen...). Die Sonne war fast weg als wir unsere Stative und Kameras packten und zurück zu dem alten Chevy wanderten, als Tully plötzlich stoppte und zurück zu den Totem Poles zeigte - und unglaublich, die Wolken färbten sich wie aus heiterem Himmel pink und rot!! Wir rannten zurück mit unserem Equipment und hatten noch ein paar wenige Minuten, um dieses unbeschreibliche Schauspiel einzufangen...

Ich weiß nicht, was Ihr denkt, doch für mich ist dieses eine Foto die ganze Tour wert gewesen...viel Vergnügen, meine lieben Freunde :-)

A new day, a new year, a new ice fishing season!

ODC: NEW

 

1/52: I have decided to do a 52 week project this year to help get me back into taking pictures more regularly. I have every "good intention" of completing the project :)

 

Happy New Year, everyone!

Riding my atv in a spiral at the sand dunes at night. I opened the shutter, rode down to the center of the arc, turned on the lights, held the brake lever down just enough to light up the brake lights, and started to ride in an outward arc. It was pretty easy to keep the spacing even, because I just had to follow the tire marks from the previous layer. When I felt that I'd exceeded the frame, I turned off my lights and rode back up to where my camera was positioned, and closed the shutter.

I accidentally did a shoot today for a Budweiser/Motorsports calendar. That's what I get for having a camera and lights in the Jeep all of the time. Sheesh.

Seen at our favorite Ford dealers annual car show, the legendary Rod Baker. He has a massive car /truck / race car collection. It was nice to see some of his rare tin getting time in the sun. Had great time, until the rains came...

A little sloppy with the processing but more of a test round than anything.

Four wheelers were for a long time the mainstay of all railway freight. These wagons came in all shapes and sizes, each for a different type of cargo.

 

These are a few of the freight vehicles to be found at Cheddleton, the main depot of the Churnet Valley Railway in North Staffordshire.

Fast cars don't kill people, recklessness does.

 

kilyoum 7ad ymoot, ya3ni on a daily basis I mean wtf??? You control the car, the car does not control you, you have a brain and you've got logic!!!

 

So many accidents are caused by those stupid indians (not racism here), its a fact, especially those truck drivers who know they are driving a tank and nothing could stop them.

 

We need more stringent driving license examinations, many things should be taught, how to avoid an accident, how to understand your car's capability, not all cars are ferraris u knoW? I think even basics such as "how to change your tire" should be taught.

 

Do they ever tell you to check your water/coolant temperatures to avoid an exploding engine and watever chaos that follows? Do you know how much tire pressure you need to be safe for driving, or perhaps how much tire tread? infact do you know that is really easy to modify your engine, but tires have max-speed limits? Most of the 4wheel tires are rated at about 180 KPH NOT MORE. Why the hell did you think their were speed limits on those 4wheeler?

 

So what they do is, they take a 20 year old Nissan Patrol, get into the engine change everything, add a huge turbocharger with lots of boost, Nitrous Oxide, race fuel, and pray that everything will be ok. You think its interesting that your car could be as fast as an SLR? duude no comparison, infact TBA 5RDEH? allah ya36eek!! Now what happens when you in your 1000 HP Patrol are driving on a road while a car turns up infront of you, you try the brakes? well your brakes are 20-year old technology, you attempt to grab another lane, but remember that your riding on 900 (ts3myaat) tires, your car lifts on two wheels as you flip flip and flip over, by that time you're not just dead, laa ur welldone ba3d!!

 

people don't know SHIT over here, this is one of the times where I feel jealous from other countries.
