I spent a few days racking my brain for something sun. Since I own a car that has a sunroof, I figured why not take a photo of it? But just a photo from the inside looking out is not very dramatic. So I figured I better get something more exciting. My Motion Blur shot I did from my bicycle came to mind right away. I fastened my tripod and camera to the side of my bike and got some pretty good shots, one was good enough for a Red ribbon back during the WPL.

So, I did that again except I tied the tripod to the luggage rack of my Lexus RX350. The tripod was very, very solid. So off I went to the mountains. I set my remote release to delay 15 seconds, then it took a shot once a second. I got my settings right after a few practice runs. Then I set the number of shots to 75. I'd push the start button and hop in and start driving. I think I took around 300 shots to get this one I liked the best.

Processing was easy. Nothing too difficult. Then it started snowing this afternoon! Glad I went out this morning to get this shot completed!

GO Leicanikons!
