Somewhere Theres a Highway
Jan. 16th 2009 Mike Stobbs

Somewhere There's a Highway

Ok so is this better.....looks like I took lot's of flack over my up close train image......
Really, I made sure I was safe..marked a spot and stood on it.
How about these roads today +6 very windy and blowing this new snow all over the place.
The roads where right bad and for me to say bad they are bad, and at times you could not even see the highway.
I just had to get out and capture this image with the Fisheye....It makes for some cool Sun Stars......
This was the good part of the highway...and yes "Somewhere There's a Highway" out there...........

Nikon D300 ,Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G AF ED DX Fisheye
1/500s f/10.0 at 10.5mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

creeping around your older PaD's - this is great. I have quickly learned three things about you Mike: You will do anything for a shot, your drivin to perfection, your crazy for living in that Cold.

Wow...this is awesome. From the low angle, the bright startburst, the colors, and the texture. So much to look at in such a simple concept. One of my new faves.

Great wide shot. You can see forever. You like living dangerously don't you? First out near the train, then with your shorts on at -30C and now laying on the highway. It's totally worth it though because I like the images.

Saskatchewan horizon; at the end of the highway...super shot Mike!

Great example of proper ultra wide lens use. A real winner.

Very cool image - excellent shot.

First you're too close to a train, then almost naked outside in sub-subzero weather and now you're in the middle of a frozen road. Are we going through a mid life crisis? It's a fantastic image Mike :-)

I'll bet that's as slippery as it looks. Please, drive as safely as I dress! :-)
