Death Valley 1990

Death Valley 1990

I can’t believe it has been almost exactly 26 years since I was in Death Valley National Park.  I was going back through some (very old) images, relatively low quality scans of 5×7 color prints, and found this image of some sand dunes shot in June of 1990.

Lamp Lite Motel

Lamp-Lite Motel

This is the Lamp-Lite Motel (or at least the sign) along US 51 in Portage, Wisconsin.   Now, I have to say up front, I’ve done just a wee bit of work on this one (see below).  Taken in June of last year and finally processed today, I was driving toward Baraboo looking for a particular waterfall to photograph.   At 60mph, I was almost even with the sign before I even saw it.

Texas Highway

Texas Highway

This photo was taken through the windshield of my Dodge, on an isolated Texas highway, somewhere in Big Bend National Park in Texas while driving at about 85 mph. It was in late September of 1997 or 1998 and I propped my Nikon FM2 up on the dash, centered the car on the yellow line and started shooting.
