    mtbbrian in Park City

    Brian and I got together for a little mountain bike ride in Park City. Just a little 8.5 mile loop at 8000 feet - no big deal. Brian ruled it.

    Indian Paintbrush and Sage

    This stuff is all over right now. I can't stop taking pictures of it. This was actually taken the day before I rode with Brian, but on the same trail. Taken at f/3.5 and 60mm with the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di. I like this lens a lot!

    Park City

    And finally, looking down on Park City from the trail. And yes, we rode up from down there. And this isn't even near the top of the climb

    During the Sundance Film Festival those streets are filled with inappropriately-dressed, self-important people who know more than you or I

    Great that you and Brian were able to connect. Looks like an awesome place to ride or just to take pictures. Love that wild flower shot.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Sounds like and looks like you had a good one.
    The flower looks like Indian Paint Brush.
    Keep Shooting!

    O.K. I'm gasping for air and I'm riding in the back of van!

    Great shots, what did you shoot with?

    All of these photos were shot with a Kodak disc camera. I'm that good

    The first one was taken with a Canon SD850 IS P&S that's on loan for review. The rest were taken with my XTi. I've been using the SD850 IS for a couple of weeks now and it's pretty sweet. Usually I miss having more manual controls. But the exposure is very good and I'm finding I'm ok with just point-and-shoot action. Plus, the image quality is awesome for a compact digital.

    Thanks for putting up with my slow butt, once I got into the groove, things were better.
    There's just something magical about that high mountain light! Despite the fact that the air here in the valley is AWFUL!
    I'll post some of you here tomorrow, from the digital camera you loaned out.
    The one from the Holga though will have to wait awhile, it was the first or second frame on the roll.
    Let's make sure we do it again soon!
    I'll work on my cardio!
    I am still very interested in a print of that second one, and maybe the first one too!

    How do you carry your camera gear on a bike?

    Wow, very scenic and beautiful shots! Hope the descent made the climbing worth the effort!

    Whoa, 8K FEET? I can't imagine that since I'm a flatlander troll from Michigan... (definition: troll - a person who lives under a bridge (i.e. Mackinac Bridge).

    Photo-John, how do you carry your DSLR equipment (or plain ol' SLR)? Stuffing a Holga into a Camelbak M.U.L.E isn't much of an issue since they weigh next to nothing.

    Happy Trails,
    Dan

    Re: mtbbrian in Park City

    I get winded just getting out the compressor to pump up my 100 PSI road tires, never mind riding. My son and I are going to start hitting the blacktop tomorrow. We both weigh 220 and need to lose the extra inner tubes.

    Nice shots John.

    Re: mtbbrian in Park City

    Sigh.... I'm so jealous of you guys. I have got to move to Colorado or Utah or Oregon or something. It's too darn hot around here. I can't wait to get to Colorado for my trip in a few weeks.

    John, those are great shots as usual. It's good to see Brian really is MTB Brian. I really like the DOF and light colors in that flower shot.

    Paul,
    It's been pretty hot here too lately.
    I am still very much MTB Brian, I just don't get out as much as I used to.
    Maybe I should go by my other online personna, Red Holga Man... :thumbsup:
