Default Sunset @ 80 MPH


Gotta love these new wacky digi snapshooters.

Taken while driving at 80mph last evening.

We used to spend hours with Velvia 50 and filters galore to do these back in the day

Are you suggesting that your digisnapper matches the colour accuracy of velvia 50 with a warming and polarising filter? I'd send it back...

Nice grab, though I thought you had much lower speed limits on the other side of the pond?

I have found the digi's closer to Velvia than Kodachrome. Alas. Of course with these shots, that's a plus. Yes, we used to double dip on the filters galore. 812's and polarizers with an occasional FL thrown in for good measure. Or if God wasn't cooperating at all, an 85b. Oh, the speed limit on the road I was on is 45mph.

Please, please tell me you were the passenger? I know you said "while driving," but you really meant "while riding" in the car......

To be in character, tell us that the car you were in is older than you are.

I feel like such a mother!

Now eat your vegetables.


Great shot, though.

ISTR that the Highways Department of an adjacent State used to publish a magazine called "Arizona Sunsets". They were great. No doubt you will claim that the Nevada sunsets are better!

Cheers,

Now that would be even more out of character than driving a new car and shooting a digital camera!

Yes, of course. We're closer to the sky here.

You're a wild lot, aren't you. I know that you shoot at lots of things in Nevada, but since when has shooting digital cameras been a State sport?

BTW, since when have you had speed limits? When I drove there, in the 1960s, the advice was merely to "Drive with Prudence". I often wondered whether any baby girls were ever christened "Prudence" in Nevada....

Cheers,
