Get Out of the Road!
June 06, 2013 • Leave a Comment
OK photographers it’s time to engage your brains…and your sense of self preservation. Over the past two weeks I’ve spent dozens if not a hundred hours or more traveling the Colorado back-country roads in search of new fall photographs. Just like you, I get excited about what I see and can’t wait to begin photographing the landscape. But come on, do you have to stop in the middle of the road and leave all the doors open? I come around the blind turn to see what looks like an SUV that just exploded and people with cameras standing in the middle of the road. Suicidal photographers!
In the name of self preservation and with the possibility of being able to enjoy this hobby or profession again tomorrow, can you please find a safe, wider place to pull to the side of the road before jumping out to make pictures? Oh, and if you would close the doors other cars may be able to get by too. Oh, and if you could set up tripods or stand at the edge of the roadway or even off of it altogether the fun of photographing the Colorado back-country might last a lot longer for you.
OK, enough of the rant. Have fun out there, make beautiful images and be safe!
