Another fantastic RR. Thanks for sharing Dave, incredible pics as always.
Great report and fantastic pics!
Just seen your report, beautiful pics, I love the way you experimented with the camera. I really enjoyed reading and looking at those photos. You certainly are an ambassador for your beautiful country.
I must and want to visit the U.S. one of these days. I just have to figger-out where to put my wife and daughter on the bike!
Thanks very much for sharing.
Outstanding photography and ride. Thanks for taking us along, again.
On photos like this one, how long do you have to leave the shutter open to get the stars to turn out?
Good question MrGoldfish. It really depends.
This one was shot with an 8mm Fisheye Lens at f5.6, iso400, and a 30 second shutter time. There was a bright moon and I used a small flashlight to paint the foreground a little.
You can usually use a 25 to 30 second shutter speed with a wide angle lens, but as your focal length gets longer (zoomed in) the movement of the stars becomes more noticeable. At 25 seconds the stars are already elongated.
Hmmm... I see your painting now. The tree on the right side of the photo isn't lit up as much as the stuff in the foreground.
I would like to get a camera that I can take night shots with so I want to make sure it can keep the shutter open long enough to gather enough light so that my photo will turn out. I was checking out the Pentax cameras after I heard that you use them. Specifically the 5. Seems like a pretty versatile camera while being somewhat compact. I didn't really see what the difference was between the S model and the standard is though.
As always, I love your ride reports and photos that go along with them. Keep it up!
Dave - riding with you on your trips away - look forward to your adventures- another great ride.
Great report and pics! This area may as well be my back yard. It's amazing how many people live near places like the Mojave and will never grow to appreciate it's beauty. Maybe that's ok though... The fewer people the better!
