Road Vistas

Road trips can always provide great photo "opps" — especially when traveling (as a passenger0 with a digital camera. Many cameras have special effects for straight out of the camera (SOOC) shooting. These photos were taken with a Canon PowerShot SX130, a point & shoot camera with an extended telephoto.

Like playing with color settings for poster effects, vibrant color, and color swap.

Another choice is switching to black and white (B&W) which works great with lots of cloud effects.

Fish eye effects can also be a lot of fun too.

There are scenes as seen through other things, like this tanker truck.

And ones that make you wonder like this one:  How do you get a gorilla into the bag AND more importantly why would you want to ?

Can you figure out how this photo was taken ? (Hint - it was not taken in a car or while driving)

Hand in photo

A gorilla could come in handy whilst travelling.

love them all, the fish eye wins first place, and i think you were standing on the side of the road in the last one... boo hoo, i have not been a passenger on a trip since i got my camera, 7 years since we went on the road... now i want to ride and snap, but then since i don't ride with earnhardt hubby, guess it will nt happen. i just bought Bob Gorrila glue and Gorilla epoxy, but no bag. YET

Pretty cloud shots. It's fun to experiment with the camera and see what you can create.

Nice cloud pictures! The fish-eye ones are startling!
