this is from March, but I just got around to processing it today.

from that same beach where I broke a toe falling off a ledge:

Four Mile Beach

645D & 67 105/2.4
see it on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeoria/14848909419/in/photostream/
Nice, those are some vivid colors.

I shot a couple of fireworks shows this summer with the 67ii on RVP 100F. For the first one I was really close so I decided to intentionally get even closer with the 135/4 and mostly just shot partials and closeups rather than trying to capture the entire scene.

Those are some impressive fireworks shots! It's a nice change from all the overview shots you normally see.

thanks! Here is one of my car in a field. My undercarriage was getting beaten up by rocks and debris.
Hello to my fellow Mustanger!

The only problem I see with that photo is with the car. Why the hell is the top up??

only two reasons, otherwise it woulda stayed down as usual:

1) massive amount of airborne debris and dust from this dried up wheatfield and dusty trail
2) I left the car unattended to hike along the railroad tracks well out of sight of the car. Not sure who or what lives in this back country..

here's the regular view:



As a landscape photographer, I have come to realize my choice of car is impractical...I have taken it on beaches, over some punishing rocks that beat up the undercarriage, have driven through a trail surrounded by branches so dense, they scratched the paint on both side panels as well as the hood and tore my antenna clean off. I've gotten myself stuck in the mud a few times and had to be winched out. I've bent all four rims hitting bumps in the road, i even smacked into a 6-ft aluminum ladder that fell off a truck in front of me on the freeway at full speed, and I drove over it.

Wow. But you go out in the world with your mustang and use it, and that's a great thing..And perhaps in the process show some people that they don't need a forty-foot-long gas-guzzling monster-wagon simply because it rains twice a year.

Bravo, sir! And I totally understand your reasons.

My Mustang is currently enjoying a semi-retirement. It was my only car for many years, but now she is a toy and sometimes commuter. Thankfully I will never have to use her as hard as you use yours; I have a Jeep for that

Lets take this over to eBay motors and see what kind of bids we can get!!

@normhead, I've been thinking that for a few months now as I look at this thread at lease once every few days....

Replace the pretty Mustang for one of those International Scouts or old squared off Landcruisers. You can look the part and have the cash for a new Z and that sweet 28-45 zoom if you sell the D.
