No problem Susan. I have taken loads of photos, but I don't want to spam the forum too much :p

If you want to see the whole two years worth, have a look at my blog. Ryan Wilson's Blog - There are 238 photos (and maps) that cover the past 2.5 years :)

Thanks :)

It was a great opportunity where the company I work for transferred my wife and I to Toronto for two years. During that time we visited as many placed as we could possible fit in.

All the wide shots are multiple shots that I have stitched.

I really like this photo, but I think to really make it pop you should up the contrast. Get it in photoshop and up the contrast to about 75 and you'll see what I mean. The mountains will have more texture and the road will actually stand out which I think tells a bit of a story. As soon as I saw this photo, it made me think of this one of mine I took a couple of years back. The initial photo was pretty plain, but I up'd the contrast a lot and now it is one of my favorites.

Hi Guys,

I haven't been on the forum for many months now. I have finished my two year stint in Canada and I'm now back in Australia (since July 2015). My last post was when we had just visited San Francisco. Since then we have visited so much more! Below are just a few of the highlight shots from mid 2014 to mid 2015.

Had a work trip out to Chile this week. I had to visit a couple of mine sites near Calama which is the entry point into the Atacama Desert. This is the oldest and driest desert in the world.

We were very lucky with the weather. It was originally going to rain on Saturday, but it held off.

We did hear about the guardrail collapse. There is a new rail now and that is where we put our padlock :)

I was flying in from Denver last night and when I picked up my rental car, there was definite evidence of the hail storm. Quite a few dimples.

I haven't posted for a little while, but I've been travelling for the past month. I thought I would share a few photos from my time in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Absolutely loved travelling around both these cities. If you would like to see more, check out my Flickr page. If anyone is travelling to these two cities, I have two hot tips:

1. To enjoy Los Angeles you must hire a car. If you don't, you will hate it. We hired a Camaro which made it even better :)
2. San Francisco caters for tourists better than any city I've been to. Make use of the hop on hop off bus tours and get all day passes for public transport. The cable cars, trains and buses are excellent.

I have done another trip. This time I flew from Salt Lake City, Utah to Phoenix, Arizona where I did quite a long drive through Safford and Tucson. Before flying out of Utah, I visited the Rice-Eccles Stadium where the winter Olympics in 2002 was held. In Arizona I spent my road trip driving around a Dodge Challenger which was great fun and got to see some good scenery as well.

Landscape Road Trip to Ghost Town
Posted By NISZILA
Replies: 7

Metropolis, Nevada is a ghost town in Elko County, Nevada, 12 mi (19 km) north of Wells.
During the early twentieth century, many homesteaders attempted to farm in the Great Basin, especially in western Utah but also in northeastern Nevada. Creating the town of Metropolis was the project of an eastern businessman, Harry L. Pierce of Leominster, Massachusetts, and investors from both Massachusetts and Salt Lake City. During the second decade of the twentieth century, Pierce's Pacific Reclamation Company intended to make the optimistically named Metropolis the center of a huge farming district.
The Company purchased 40,000 acres (16,000 ha) of desert land in 1910 and hired a respected Salt Lake City contractor, P. J. “Pat” Moran, to build a dam on Bishop Creek, 15 mi (24 km) east of the planned city, hoping to use the reservoir for irrigation. Once the dam was complete, the Company stepped up its promotional campaign, and the LDS Church encouraged members to move there. The town became predominately Mormon, and no church was ever built in Metropolis because the Mormons used the town amusement hall as a meetinghouse.
In an attempt to demonstrate permanence, the Company built the amusement hall, a post office, a school, a train depot, and a magnificent modern hotel, complete with an electric generator, central heating, and hot and cold running water in every room. A railroad spur was extended to the town site, and regular passenger service began in 1912. The population grew to nearly 700.
Superficially the town seemed a success, but it faced serious problems. Pierce had failed to obtain water rights to Bishop Creek, and the downstream town of Lovelock sued to prevent the impoundment of water behind Bishop Creek Dam. Because residents could not irrigate, many tried dry-farming wheat, successfully at first.
After settlers killed marauding coyotes, the jackrabbit population rose dramatically. Rabbits systematically ate the wheat, and farmers retaliated with guns, poison, and organized drives. They killed thousands of jackrabbits and sold them in San Francisco.
Dry-farming had been possible for a few years only because of unusually high precipitation. Lower rainfall and Mormon crickets ended the experiment. Pacific Reclamation declared bankruptcy in 1920. In 1922 the railroad discontinued service. By 1924, only 200 people remained. The amusement hall and hotel burned, and the last store closed in 1925, the post office in 1942. The few remaining residents turned to ranching. By 1950 Metropolis was a ghost town. Today ranches surround the town site. The ruins of the hotel and school and a cemetery are all that remain.

Drove from Elko, Nevada to Salt Lake City, Utah via the ghost town of Metropolis today. The ghost town was in the middle of nowhere making it hard to find especially when the unnamed roads were not even on the GPS. Luckily I didn't get lost by using my trusty mud-map.

It was definitely worth going to see!

The panorama's are not crops, but multiple photos merged together. The first panorama is seven photos, the second is three and the third is four. After merging them with PS, I crop the uneven edges.
