    The Road to Moab

    Morning fellow members. Thought I would just start a general thread than photos from different camera's can go into each section of the forum. Anyway last night we shot a nice sunset of Sedona which is our starting point and it about 2 hours we will go out for a sunrise shoot than start our travel north and to the east. We have a ton of shooting today and will wind up in Chinle this evening which is Canyon De Chelly about 280 miles from my seat right now. Thought I would start this with a little drama. I shot the G1 and MF stuff today and my reader will not download the G1 files. SoI will borrow one today so i can download the G1 which BTW everyone just loves. I know I got some nice images from it. So we just have to settle for some Phase MF stuff. I know Bummer.BTW these are straight out of C1 no PS at all. All with a 300mm Mamiya lens. Thought some B&W would be a fun start

    A few from yesterday on the Sedona leg of our workshop. These were all from the P45+ on the Mamiya, and all are the 120 macro.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Our internet is very weak but we are in Chinle or Canyon De Chelley. I am out of order but this is pretty cool. Last 10 minutes of light and we made it to this spot. I think there is a cop still looking for that buzz going flying by.LOL

    This is MF a 6 shot vertical Pano stitch with the 80mm in Canyon De Chelley. BTW driving through Flag we drove through a snow storm and up to 50 miles wind gusts all day long. We are wind burned but we had a ball anyway

    I did one last night, not posted, and it was over a gig

    Here's a single frame taken about five minutes after Guy's above -- he got cold and went back to the car :sleep006::



    Hopefully some more later this week -- I'm beat so off to bed...

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Couple more one from Petrified Forest and one from Canyon De Chelly. Need to get ready for more here , it snowed last night in Canyon De Chelly so we should be waking up to some dusting. Also big storm hit Moab last night so again looks like we hit perfect timing. Thanks to Farmer Almanac Jack we don't seem to miss much. We will be in Moab tonight for sunset.

    Major envy here. Really.

    Jack, as your photo om Canyon de Chelly points out, one should never tear down until it's pitch dark. Best light is often too dark to see with the naked eye.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Great photos folks....we are all envious of your trip! I especially liked the 6 shot pano of Canyon de Chelly. Panos in a place like that are really appealing to me. Wish I could have been there to see it. I have many fond memories of weekends spent shooting in the Sedona and northern Arizona area in the mid-80s, before I moved to Alaska. Never made it to the Petrefied Forest....but Zion, Bryce, Arches and Monument Valley were all great experiences.

    Enjoy the trip and keep those photos coming!!

    Honestly I was running a fever and shivering really bad. Otherwise not a issue. My health comes first. But yes it is a great lesson wait till it's dark. LOL

    Guy, Bob and Jack:


    Totally amazing pictures. So nice to see the workshop Road to Moab thread.
    I am completely stoked at the captures...keep them coming, between this and Death Valley I cannot imagine a better environment for the landscape photographer.

    I have decided to start a new thread in the MF forum for all of us at home who a left with the more mundane shooting environs..."in my backyard."

    Stay safe.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Couple more g1 shots with the kit lens here 2 from Canyon De Chelley and one from Moab balance Rock with the long zoom. I have more G1 stuff but will not be shooting it the rest of the week. One of our workshop members camera is just not up to date and I just want to make sure he has nice images to go home with, so I am lending him my G1 for the rest of the trip. Jack and I are really not shooting much but more involved in others getting there images well done.

    Bob - the Balanced Rock pano is wonderful, nicely done!

    Guy - Lots of nice things in the composition of the first one from the g1 shots with the kit lens from Canyon De Chelley, nice eye, as always. Get some rest.

    Blas, Winslow Az. was a well known railroad town backin it's hayday. This town also became very popular when a very well known musical artist wrote a song about it. I think it was Jackson Browne, Jack thinks it was the Eagles Glen Frey back it the late 70's I think was the time frame. Regardless the song is great and it put Winslow AZ. on the global map. The town made a display in honor of that song. Which BTW every guy in the world wished would happen to him picking up a girl in a flat bed board slowing down to take a look at me( some lyrics from it). Oh we could be so lucky

    Now I will be singing this song all day long. LOL

    Hello All,
    Great shots coming from Moab.

    Song was mostly written by Jackson Browne and finished off by Glen Frey in 1973. Called Take It Easy and on Eagles 1st album.

    So, take it easy.

    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Nice shot .. would make a very nice B&W.

    Small Az town (w/famous name anyway), old truck in the foreground, couple 'dancing' (we'll call it that...) in a window, bored bald eagle on other windowsill - nothing moving anywhere (other than our couple).

    Interesting that the truck picture in the window with the blonde at the wheel (a mural of some sort?) looks to be a pre- bodywork version of the Ford? sitting at the curb.

    Great capture

    Here are a few of mine -- and pretty meager offerings after seeing the great shots Guy and Bob posted!







    Okay, time to get some coffee and head out into the 20 degree weather,

    I can't image how big and difficult the file would be to work with if it was with the P65+ ... but, then again, it sure would be fun to try.
