Here is a link to the first half of my photos. More to come later.
The above set is part 2 which also includes a lot of images from our own add on trip to Yellowstone that we did on the way home from the C-4 tour.
Part one of the photos of C-4 will include some of the trip out to Kanab and the first few days of the tour as well.
Also forgot we spent time at "Arches" and "Canyonlands" between the C-4 tour and Yellowstone
Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.
Really Great pics!!
You got some great shots there. That's wonderful country for a tour. I hope I can make it to C-5, whenever that is.
Those are some of the best Grand Canyon And other parks photos I have ever seen! Someday I hope to see it in person. Hopefully from a model T tour.
Greta pictures Erich. I will share mine when I get home. We really enjoyed our evening spent with you guys participating in the pioneers parade and then later enjoying some nibbles and wine and the pioneers day fireworks. Forum folk did not disappoint. It was great to meet you all in person and enjoy a wonderful tour. Don't hesitate to come down under for a visit.
Warwick, I couldn't agree more. My wife and I agree it was a joy meeting you and your family. We hope we can get back to Australia one day. A T tour there would be a blast. Safe traveling you guys.
Fantastic photography. What camera did you use and did you do any enhancing. Your work is really top notch!!!
Wonderful presentation, neat borders, and the cropping is masterful, you are a whizz !
Thanks everyone. Hal I wanted to keep to a very small camera and not have to lug around a kit of camera gear. The camera I used was truly pocket size but still gives good results, the Sony HX-5 that is several years old and a veteran of many outings. I did do some very simple correcting with Picasa, a free program from Google. I love photography and I always have an eye out for a better "travel camera" as I find If I have to lug around a full size SLR with lenses, I just don't do it. No camera means no photos obviously. Once it gets more than pocket size, it gets more likely to get left behind. The next larger camera I am interested in has a full size sensor, small body, the Sony Alpha NEX series. We shall see if I ever try that one or not. Thanks again for all the praise.
flicker will even tell you the camera make, some specs and it's ranking against Sony Cameras . . .
To be fair, I must say the conditions were very good for this kind of photography. I have visited most of these places during prolonged hot dry periods with the ground baked dry, the air particulate filled and hazed. This week was sunny and hot but the daily monsoons cleaned the air of haze and intensified the colors of the soil and rocks to a peak not seen all the time.
Art, that is cool. I didn't know about that feature.
We tried to get out on the road early each day so many of my shots feature morning light. Nice for landscapes. Then the thunderstorms would form around 1:00 in the afternoon or so. If we got rained on, it was mostly on our way back to base camp. What a great week it was.
Very good pictures. Glad you had a good time and that your car ran fine. We did that tour 4 years ago with MTFCA. It was a memorable one. The first day we went to Brice and ran all the way in high gear. After that we went up the first grade on a couple of other days and used Ruckstell. It is easier on the engine in Ruckstell, but I wanted to see if it would go all the way in high and it did.
Erich - Thanks for posting the pictures - they're great!
Great photos. The best coverage of a trip to the area I have seen.
Part one of the photos is nearly complete so here is the link....
The dyno was very fun and revealing. I was shocked at the wide variation in power between all the Ts tested.
Erich - You certainly make me want to participate in a future tour of the caliber of the one you and your wife just went on! As always, your pictures are fantastic! Thanks so much for taking them all and posting them on the forum. I have always felt that southern Utah is a very special place in the USA as the scenery is so unique, and it's not often that it can be said that "pictures do it justice",.....but yours do! Thanks again,......harold
Beautifully wonderful pictures! The scenery and cars are all amazing.
Thank you everyone. I can't wait to do a tour like this again. There were some long hours and hard work to make sure we all had a great day every day. A huge thank you to all involved. The cars, people, natural wonders, it was sublime.
Now all are done and view-able at the two posted links above.
Erich, Thanks for some fantastic photos of a great trip. Hope to see you again on another tour!
Wonderful photos. You have a lot of talent there. It's nice to be able to relive the memories of our trip. I enjoyed it a lot, and special thanks to Russ, and Marilyn, who made it all happen.
Thanks for all of the pictures of a great tour, my wife and I enjoyed viewing them on our TV using the browser on the Xbox. I remember seeing the shrink wrapped car at the Shiloh Inn when you arrived, great idea.
Thanks everyone. That shrink wrap was a pain. Not good for a fine paint job either. Good thing my car is a 20 footer.
