Pictures!

 | August 11, 2008 7:14 am

I’ve taken about 2500 pictures this trip and am working now in getting it down to just a few that are actually good. With the results I’ve gotten from what I’ve gone through so far I figure I might end up with as many as 50 that are worth keeping. Here’s a couple from my drive out to Colorado at the start of this trip:

rest-stop-in-utah-3.jpg

Both these pictures were taken from a rest stop in Utah. I believe I was on highway 70 at this point, though it might still have been the 15.

I haven’t been to all the states yet, but Utah just might have the best views from their rest stops. They are the sort of views that always make me grateful for the interstate highway system and glad I’m not traveling in a covered wagon across the deserts.

Unfortunately, I hadn’t yet bought a tripod so even though I was there a little later during a great sunset the low light pictures I took didn’t really come out very well. I guess I’ll just have to go back someday… What a shame.

I’ve been getting the chance to play around with my new camera on this trip and hopefully as I continue I’ll be able to up that ratio of 50 decent pictures out of every 2500.

More pictures coming as I get them sorted.

I miss that part of the world. I love the desert/that landscape. *Sigh*

Nice photos. :-)

It’s been in the triple digits here in Las Vegas, so I could do without some of the heat, but I love it too.
