West Texas Vanishing Point

Having gone several miles down this insanely straight, insanely flat road at an insane speed I decided I wanted to stop and photograph this scenery. I used a fisheye lens (AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED) and held the camera over my head to be able to see as much of the road as I can past the car.

The cool thing about this 75mph highway is that when you’re standing in the middle of the road and you see a car coming, you still have several minutes to get out of the way.

2011 VW Golf GTI

My friend Tom got a new VW GTI so we went out to shoot some photos of his new sled.  This shoot was a lot of fun. My friend Pete was driving as I was shooting out of the back seat window.  We were communicating via walkie talkies trying to get vehicle positioning just right.  
It was about 39°F on Saturday morning as I was hanging my head out of the window at 50 mph.  My ear hurt from the cold.  
To get the motion blur on the road and the wheels I dragged the shutter and shot a lot to get a sharp image of the car.
