Another shot from along Avenue of the Giants in northern California.  I love how close this one tree is to the road.  I love how the shoulder goes around the tree.  Hopefully it’s there for many years to come (map).

Time for a change of scenery.  Time to leave the dry desert southwest and explore lush northern California.  This trip was a part of a week long vacation with the wife that would take us several places in northern California and southern Oregon.  The photos over the next couple weeks will have come from that trip.

This particular shot is from along Avenue of the Giants.  Avenue of the Giants is a 31-mile portion of historic US-101 which is now signed CA-254.  This wasn’t my first trip to the Avenue, but it was the first with my IR camera.  I absolutely love the area and can’t wait to go back (map).

As promised earlier this week, albeit a day late, here is a look around the corner from Wednesday’s picture.  This is a view looking south towards White Domes from just off Mouse’s Tank Road (map).

Continuing with shots for my Byways series taken during my latest trip out to Valley of Fire State Park just north of Las Vegas.  This shot required a little work in the field as well as work in the digital darkroom.  In the field I tried several different compositions.  Different tripod heights, lens zoom length, and tripod location in the road.  Of them I felt this was the best composition.  I like how the center line draws you in from the corner of the frame and pulls you into the road which takes you through the rest of the image.  The digital darkroom work was mostly removing various signs and shoulder markers.  If you’re interested in seeing what’s around the corner, I’ll be sharing a photo of that on Friday (map).

Another video from Kirill Neiezhmakov.  A few weeks ago I posted a video of his from Portugal.  In the description he had said that was was attending an awards show.  He was attending because this video, Moscow Night Timelapse, won top prize in the “Finisterra 2014″ festival.  Here is what Kirill has to say about this video:

At winter cloudy day city reminds old movie, but at nightfall Moscow transformed!  This night TimeLapse in Motion filmed at winter in Moscow (Russia) during 5 nights.

I left Valley of Fire Highway, turning north onto Mouse’s Tank Road, to head out to White Domes.  Along the way I made this stop to grab a shot of the road as is snakes through the desert (map).
