Thanks! Most of the pictures were taken with a Nikon D5000 which is med-entry level DSLR. Some were taken with a Cannon Rebel DSLR which was my Dad's.

Wolf Creek Wednesday - 2009!

BoomBostic and I met in Francis, Ut (He works in Orem and I work in Sandy) to make an evening out riding.

Ut 35, "Wolf Creek Pass" is a very nice road you can ride after work and be home before dark.

View Larger Map

To make it interesting, we took "Guardsmans Pass" from Park City to Big Cottonwood canyon, which requires a few miles on dirt.

The summit of Wolf Creek Pass - It really is a great road.


Artsy Fartsy


Fiji looking pretty.


BoomBostic and his black FJR.


Yours Truly.


Messing around.


Heading back.


That is what's nice about Wednesday, had the entire road to ourselves.


This pics were taken with a little Casio point-n-shoot.


Rumble.


Just outside of Park City, starting our way up Guardsmans pass.


Fiji - The top of guardsmans pass.


She loves me.




I took a lot of motorcycle posing pics this ride.


Nice view.


Dropping into Big Cottonwood Canyon.




Big Cottonwood Canyon and camper smoke.


I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Would happen to know what lens you have? Are you color correcting these with any software? Sorry to get off topic but some of these are simply beautiful and the GF is bugging me for a good camera and I'm trying to learn.

The camera came with two lenses and as far as lenses go they aren't great. I think if you bought them separately they might go for around $200 which is cheap for a lens, my brother who is a real photographer and spent around $2000 for a lens. I do have a UV filter on my lens's for protection, etc...

I like photography, I took a semester in college which helped me gain some understanding of depth-of-field, shutter speeds, etc... Alll the pics I take while riding (actually moving) are done with the camera set to "auto" mode and stopped I shoot full manual. I use photoshop to do some post processing, sharpen, pump up the saturation and contrast, to try and reduce some of the haze.
