It was amazing because it was my first ATV / 4-wheeling adventure.
It was Alaska.
It was 10hrs long and I saw sunrise and sunset and only a couple hours of dark.
I came back so dirty from dust and stuff… I thought that was pretty cool.
I went straight from the ATV ride to airport… no shower or nothing. That was funny.
And besides all that the pictures were kick butt!
I have gone a lot of places this year and I don’t think I’ve edited very many if any of the landscapes, being so busy with Job shoots.
But i took a break from all those shoots to sit down and have fun with these edits.
It took a lot longer than wedding pictures take, but pulling an all-nighter helped.
I did a lot of work on these so I want to show them all off… but I can’t here on the blog so you’ll have to see them on SmugMug
This was early morning on the way back.
Sun was finally dipping behind the mountains. I shoved my camera down on the ground in front of these plants and hoped for the best. haha
Sun was barely coming back early early in the morning.
We were in a rush that morning to get me back to my plane… but I had to make a few stops on the trail to get these.
Kind of bummed the ATV acceleration is done with my camera hand, makes shooting while driving much harder than in a car. haha
This actually wasn’t the ATV trip, it was right after when we went to return the ATV
Taken with me half way out of a moving truck shooting opposite direction over the fields.
FYI: Camera was set to cloudy White Balance for the warm feel and the shutter speed way up since it was a moving vehicle.
This is what they were talking about when they wrote of Purple Mountain Majesty!
This was our final destination.
(See more after the break)
Another group had just finished when we started out.
Believe me only a small portion of the trip looked like this.
A lot of it was like this… at times much much deeper.
Next time maybe I’ll find someone to fly me over the glaciers… but even so… ATVing is awesome.
Dang that sunset just didn’t end. It was hanging there with it’s warm glow for hours.
Just like they all said.
More to come… pictures of the actual ATVing
But you can see them all here on smugmug now
