    Missed your tree yesterday. Really like it. Amazing how you got all of those tones in the shot and not even close to blowing anything or having it in silhouette. Really nice!

    Indeed I do! At least on the upside, that salty, smelly water does something nice to the reflections

    Indeed! Bottom line is it gives you near view camera framing capabilities with any camera

    (For Guy and Joe, the only non-cube shooters on this workshop, it is only a matter of time before they accept the fact that resistance is futile )

    It's really nice Roger except it does not have a slot for vertical so aiming straight down you can't do. This is the P1 and there is a smaller PO which Terry and Bob have. But very very solid

    Re: Salton Sea Workshop - Images

    Well after looking at all of the interesting images from the Salton Sea, I may do a little road trip to Southern AZ and S. Ca. Are there any access issues in the more interesting spots around the Salton Sea, ie an SUV is advisable or will a low clearance car be OK? Also if traveling from Tuscon is the I-8 or I-10 better for photography?

    Steve, a normal car will be fine for most places, just don't venture too far off any main roads -- lot's of pot-holes, broken glass, nails chunks of metal, etc. Also note that many of the "cities" in and around the Salton Sea still have residents, the area is (very) depressed economically, and like any other similar area one needs to exercise caution when photographing there, especially if doing so alone -- so be extra careful! The 10 has the advantage of taking you right past the South entrance to Joshua Tree NP.
