Title: Best of Road Pictures
Post by: CentralCAroadgeek on April 25, 2012, 10:28:03 PM
Post some of your best pictures along the roads on this thread! Whether its a scenic view, a downhill grade with many unfolding in front of you, or anything else, it's all welcome here! Don't forget to describe its location.

Here's my first one:

Georgia State Route 223 is a road that travels from Cedar Rock to just southeast of Grovetown (near Augusta & Fort Gordon's Gate 2).  Below is a photo of the road's eastern end that I took today.  It is just northwest of its eastern terminus, looking toward the northwest.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a "BGS"?  Something Guide Sign?  What about "Big Green Sign"?
A BGS is the abbreviation for "Big Green Sign." Like the one I've shown here.

What in the world were you doing driving down the center of the road, between two semis, no less?
Title: Re: Best of Road Pictures
Post by: kphoger on April 29, 2012, 02:57:50 PM
A2 highways (called 'supercarreteras' in common parlance) are designed for this.  They have wide paved shoulders, and the shoulder line is a broken white line.  They are commonly constructed where traffic volume is too heavy for a simple two-laner but funds aren't available for a four-lane highway.  Some drivers have even developed the habit of riding the shoulder nonstop, I guess so they don't have to watch their mirrors.

If I'm behind a slow-moving vehicle (as in the picture), here's the practice:  I crowd the center line and put my left blinker on; the truck in front of me slides over and straddles the shoulder line; I creep over the center line; any oncoming vehicles also slide over and straddle their shoulder line; and I just shoot down the middle.

When it's just passenger cars it's only a little bit nerve-shaking.  When it's 18-wheelers on either side of you, you get a little more nervous.  This was Saras first taste of Mexican-style passing.

Edit:  FYI, A2 highways are 7 meters from shoulder line to shoulder line, and have shoulders of 2.5 meters each.  That's a total width of 39 feet 4½ inches.  By comparison, the standard minimum width for one side of an Interstate highway in the U.S. is 38 feet of pavement (4-ft left shoulder, 12-foot lane, 12-foot lane, 10-foot right shoulder).  So there's plenty of room for three vehicles to pass by each other.  It still makes for a pretty cool picture, though, huh?

kphoger,
That is nuts!  We don't do that in America (at least, not the law-abiding citizens, anyway!).  I don't know if I could get used to that.  I'd probably have an accident.

Why not a slightly narrower shoulder and a 10 ft wide median?

kphoger,
That is nuts!  We don't do that in America (at least, not the law-abiding citizens, anyway!).

Not true.  This is a somewhat common practice on Texas back roads.  In fact, I had my first experience with this type of driving on Texas SR 158 between Goldsmith and Gardendale back in the 1990s.  We were obviously tourists, with bikes on top of the car, just coming out of Goldsmith (read: trying to get back up to highway speed).  The truck in front of us straddled the shoulder, then three oncoming trucks straddled their shoulder, and I was able to pass down the middle.  Yes, on a U.S. road.  Let me tell you, it doesn't take long to get used to people moving out of your way!

Why not a slightly narrower shoulder and a 10 ft wide median?

Would that make any real difference in traffic capacity?  As it is, the shoulder can still be used for its two primary purposes:  as a storage area for breakdowns (or roadkill), and as a buffer between traffic and the edge of the pavement.

I have never seen this behavior intentionally in the US.  Just once in (IIRC) Oklahoma when someone misjudged a distance towards an oncoming vehicle during a suicide pass.  Everyone reacted instinctively, and there were much brake lights and at one point all three cars were just about dead stopped side by side.

Not true.  This is a somewhat common practice on Texas back roads.  In fact, I had my first experience with this type of driving on Texas SR 158 between Goldsmith and Gardendale back in the 1990s.  We were obviously tourists, with bikes on top of the car, just coming out of Goldsmith (read: trying to get back up to highway speed).  The truck in front of us straddled the shoulder, then three oncoming trucks straddled their shoulder, and I was able to pass down the middle.  Yes, on a U.S. road.  Let me tell you, it doesn't take long to get used to people moving out of your way!

I have never seen this behavior intentionally in the US.  Just once in (IIRC) Oklahoma when someone misjudged a distance towards an oncoming vehicle during a suicide pass.  Everyone reacted instinctively, and there were much brake lights and at one point all three cars were just about dead stopped side by side. 

Yes, I've been told by a couple of people who grew up in Texas that folks often do it on the FM roads; the only other time I've seen it done stateside was when a trucker rode the shoulder on 54/400 somewhere east of Wichita to let me know it was OK to pass him (no oncoming traffic, though).

that night shot is awesome! 

Agreed.  I also like the other one, right below it; the curve of the highway is well placed in the photo.

Construction signs in general are orange in Canada. In fact both Ontario and Quebec sometimes stripe temporary lane markings in orange in construction zones. The white construction zone signage is somewhat of an anomaly unique to Ontario. (Though I am sure other provinces have other anomolies that I am not aware of).

Well, it is in an urban area (Boston) and the right of way is pretty narrow there, thus the 45mph speed limit.

40 is the lowest speed limit you can have on an Interstate.  That's also approaching the Big Dig.

Correct. There is no "lowest". It's all contextual. You could have 25 mph at the end of an Interstate if it has enough of a curve to it. Not to mention I-90's speed limits drops down into the 20s or 30s approaching toll plazas in MA.

Maybe it varies by states.  According to the variable speed zones page on the WSDOT website, they don't allow speed limits lower than 40 MPH.

Funny that the self-storage place has their old name out there...you'd think that they would want to post their current name (CubeSmart Storage apparently).  I took a bunch of pics of this sign.  With flash, the ancient button copy lights up spectacularly.

I tried sharing the pic on the Alps Roads facebook page, Steve...do you want it for your web site?  I got a couple other good pics last week in Maine and Mass that maybe you would like too.  (For example, the statement that the US 1B shield error for NH 1B may make up the only US 1B shield out there turns out wrong because Maine has some 1Bs and even a "Business US 1B" assembly up! :P )

I suppose I wonder why anybody takes photos of anything if the audiences first reaction is always that they themselves need to drop everything and take a photo of it themselves. Seems a little bit disrespectful to the initial photographer, and makes it seem like we have all gotten carried away.

Being the initial photographer, I can say that I am happy that Steve was wowed enough to want to see the location and sign himself.  If I hadn't gotten the photo, he wouldn't have known about the sign at all unless he managed to run across it in the future.  I suppose others may react differently, but that's my take anyway.

Steve, make sure you look for "Business US 1B" when heading NB on US 1 approaching Newcastle-Damariscotta.  I won't feel bad if you get your own picture!  :P

Neat! That should head over to "Worst of Road Pictures." I'm also one to be flattered when someone sees my photo and says "ooh, I never knew of that" and rushes out to see it themselves. The more, the merrier.

I suppose I wonder why anybody takes photos of anything if the audiences first reaction is always that they themselves need to drop everything and take a photo of it themselves. Seems a little bit disrespectful to the initial photographer, and makes it seem like we have all gotten carried away.

I don't get offended if other people I know go take pictures of my kids, why is a sign any more holy than that? We all go to famous places around the planet, and still get a photo for ourselves, regardless of how many thousands of others may have done so themselves. I would consider it disrespectful if someone said "I could take a better picture than that" or defaced/removed it from service inappropriately.

That sounds like a waste of resources. Do you really think you could take a photo that looks different (or better) than what's there?

Waste of resources? Are you one of these "we have to conserve gas because we're running out and burning fossil fuels is destroying the environment" types?

If Steve has the time and Steve has the money and Steve has the desire to go see this sign in the wild, more power to him.

The new span now in place on the Eggners Ferry Bridge has been well-documented in photos and videos, but he still plans to come see it. A few years ago, I took some photos of the New Harmony Bridge between Indiana and Illinois and I'm sure Steve's seen them posted on my site. He wants to see the bridge for himself and get photos before it's possibly torn down. Am I offended that he wants his own photos rather than just seeing or using mine? Of course not.

Sometimes all you need is an excuse.  Or just need *something* to set as an alternate destination.  I went to take some photos of a sign that has already been photographed this weekend, but I turned it into a longer trip with some good photos and one pretty decent sign find.

(Maine 129 photo)

If any of you want to go and take your own photos of these, go ahead. I won't be mad.  :biggrin:
There are still quite a few of these floating around.  They're getting rarer, still, but usually I'll stumble on one or two of them on every trip to Maine.

6th St northbound at Pine St, Calumet, Michigan.  it should say "203/double arrow/to/41/right arrow" but I'll forgive them.

go ahead and get your own photos.  hell, go steal the signs.  better you get them, than the highway department melts them down and turns them into a guardrail.

glad to see that Mass Ave sign survive.  if I recall correctly, it is a green sign, but has faded almost completely to black by now.  

when I first found it, all-caps button copy wasn't all that rare so I thought "hm nice" and went on my way.  looking back at that gantry, it implies to me it may be middle to late 50s in construction, which puts it to the very beginning of button copy as a manufactured product.

There's one sign only (not one each way, one total).  That sign is northbound, just past Mary Gates Drive.  (Plus small markings on bridges, and "Junction" signs implying a state route as you approach 520 and 522).

DOT wanted to abandon 513 to the City, but that would mean the City would be responsible for the Montlake Drawbridge and the underheight pedestrian bridge to Hec Ed that trucks scrape all the time.

Yep! I've been using my dad's old tripod which he doesn't use anymore, and it has done wonders in these long exposures. Thanks for the compliment!

Ever since VDOT changed the EXIT 1B sign from EAST I-64 to DOWNTOWN HAMPTON in the late 90's, it has been an issue that has irritated me from the first time I had ever seen it.  It is posting that downtown Hampton is more important than I-64 east.  It just plain looks unprofessional.  DOWNTOWN HAMPTON should be on an auxiliary sign just before that particular interchange or it could be on a LGS in place of the EAST I-64 on the gantry in the second picture.

It's a wonder the airport sign wasn't slapped over the WEST I-64 part of the EXIT 1A BGS and a trailblazer put in place of the airport sign.  I guess then it would have made the gantry look a little more "balanced".

By the way, those are excellent photographs.  I really like the first one--a simple, elegant sign.

I agree with you on this one.  Why would VDOT put I-64 EB on a small assembly instead of on the main guide?   All kidding aside, I think swapping the airport and I-64 West would be an improvement for real if they choose this way.

Interesting, is it MUTCD compliable?

I-5 north in Portland from the Morrison Bridge onramp. (On another note, does that blank electronic sign happen to be one of those new variable speed limit signs in Portland?)

I realize it's a bit stale now, but noone responded. 

It's a ramp meter signal.  Oregon uses electronic signs to indicate that the meter light is on or off.  Some of them also indicate motorists to form 2 lanes.  (Oregon only has one lane through meters; however, people are supposed to form 2 lines when the meter is on.)    That signal is at least 10 years old.

Washington uses flashing yellow on a warning sign.  California uses a pedestrian signal that says 'Meter On' instead of the standard walk/stop signal.  On expressways, they use the standard flourescent CalTrans variable sign that's been used since the 90s.

It's a brown diamond sign reading "Park Entrance," with the supplemental plaque "1200 Feet." Diamonds are for warnings.

I imagine it's meant to be a warning sign, warning you of an intersection with cross-traffic.  If it were yellow, it wouldn't stand out nearly as much.

I had about two hours to kill this morning while Wal Mart was changing my oil, so I decided to take a little hike and look for highway photo opps.  I decided on the Kansas Turnpike, which people generally don't get to see by foot.  I hope you enjoy my little-seen vantage points of the KTA.  I focused on the BGSes, because I didn't want to spend very much time close to the pavement, for obvious reasons.

C-5 Expressway

Is this the Philippine definition (= freeway) or the American definition (= divided highway with at-grade intersections)? I'm guessing it's the latter. C-6 would be an expressway under the Philippine definition.

The road's about as narrow as it gets (for a state road) along Manalapan...but the shade over the road is the cherry on the ice cream there.

This is past milepost 17 on Maui county route 31, the Piilani Hwy, looking west.  The easy way to get there is to take HI 37 to its southern end near Ulupalakua where it turns into route 31, then go until milepost 19 or so.  Turn around and shortly you will see that view.  This looks like it did around the time I first saw it in 1998, after it was newly paved and painted.  When I went back there last year, most of the center stripe had been worn away, except for short portions that had been repaved and re-striped, so the effect wasn't as nice.  In 1998 the smooth pavement end around milepost 19, last year it extended to milepost 29.

this must have been not too long after May 2009.  that is when I was there, and it is the only numbered highway on Maui I did not drive.  it was closed due to a landslide.

From home for a change.  The final rehabilitation contract to resurface the mainline lanes of the highway through Etobicoke was finished earlier this year.  This is the first time in the last decade that there hasn't been a prolonged period of construction planned for the highway

Not knowing a better spot to put it without opening up a new thread or reviving an old one, I'll simply borrow this thread. 

Guess where the following picture was shot, taking into account the color of the lane striping and the traffic flow...

(http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd144/roadnut/A179C35B-7A38-4E60-8E7A-F80D3A447F94.jpg) (http://s225.photobucket.com/user/roadnut/media/A179C35B-7A38-4E60-8E7A-F80D3A447F94.jpg.html)

If you guessed Philadelphia, you're right.  This road - 7th Street in South Philly - is supposed to be 2 lanes per direction, with a center turn lane.  After the Eagles game today, whether it was intended or not, traffic utilized all 5 lanes to head north (mostly to eventually reach I-76 & I-95).  In this case, as no traffic was permitted to head south on 7th after the game, it gave motorists unobstructed access to all lanes.  The worst of it was where 7th met Packer Ave.  Barriers were in place (and cops present) to prevent traffic from entering and traveling south on 7th, which also meant traffic going north couldn't go thru said barriers either.  The 5 lanes had to merge down to 3 lanes to squeeze thru the intersection. 

While in some cities around stadiums, lane stripping and signage are used to indicate which lanes are open and the direction of travel, Philly doesn't utilize contra-flow lanes.  Thus, most likely this wasn't the intended traffic flow the city wanted.  Oh well - it worked.  I got out of the parking lot, thru this traffic, and onto the Walt Whitman Bridge in about 15 minutes...not too bad considering the traffic volumes 70,000 people create when leaving a game.

Thanks for posting the completed version of the tunnel at Limekiln State Park in Big Sur. I've not been back that way since 2009, and I'm glad to see it's now done. I believe this tunnel is intended to reduce rock fall potential above the highway. It is debatable as to whether CA 1 north of the split just north of Gaviota is considered Pacific Coast Highway or Cabrillo Highway; there are legislative definitions for each in the Streets and Highways Code:

Nowhere near as good a pic as the rest of yours, but still one of my favorite views. Interstate 40 in western NC has some of the prettiest scenery that can be viewed from an Interstate anywhere in the country, especially the eastern US. This picture was snapped by my wife on I-40 westbound near the Mcdowell County rest area (mile marker 82) a few years ago:

You know, I've been looking at Google street view of that exact same spot multiple times over the last several weeks (planning next month's Mexico trip, which will use US-277 from the OK line to Del Rio), and I had not noticed that glaring signage goof.

You didn't happen to snap any pics of the Nipigon River bridge under construction did you?

I think this would be the Nipigon River bridge, July 17:

(snipped)

Looks like there's some twinning happening there too, at least west of the bridge.

Now the only thing preventing the twinning the 17 from the Manitoba border east is a First nations issue (which is quite fair IMO; they're asking for a simple road into their community, in order to approve the twinning).

Thanks for the pictures.

Over my Thanksgiving break, I was able to get a few night photos of downtown Boston...

Here's two shot from overpasses over the Mass Pike (I-90). The second one shows the Prudential and the John Hancock Towers with Fenway off to the right.

This one isn't anything too special; just I-90/Mass Pike trailblazer shields with the Prudential and John Hancock Towers in the background.

(https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5778/23599523065_e58c783416_z.jpg)

Here's two I took with the on/off ramps to the Tip O'Neill Tunnel (I-93) in the foreground and the Custom House Tower in the background.

And not a road photo at all, but I wanted to post it anyway because I'm happy with how it turned out.  :D

@ IAN: Of those Boston photos you took...I think the building on the right in the first picture is for New Balance. The southern extent of that building is still under construction now. I'm fairly certain that Fenway Park is just out of frame with the second picture.

As for the time lapse aspect...how long of an exposure was that set for?

Yep, I remember seeing the building with the New Balance logo on it, so I figured it had to do with them. :)

And all of these pictures were on a 30 second exposure.

While I rarely do road-related photography anymore, sometimes when I take my car on photoshoots I'll get the road in the background. These pictures were from October 2014. I've "fixed" the wheels since then as they were on the wrong side of the car, but that's off topic.

This one is more recent, from about a month ago, at 42nd Street and Riverside Drive in Richmond. Riverside is a tricky road to get photos on if you're driving (one has to be mindful of pedestrians and cyclists at all times), so I pulled off onto the side street. Even in 40° weather the road had several cyclists and pedestrians.

It is definitely beautiful country.  US 30 in PA is a very scenic drive, whether you're into mountain scenery, historic towns, or even farmland.  The stretch of 30 between Latrobe and Gettysburg (137 miles) goes through great examples of each of them.

Yeah, there is a matching disused off-ramp on the other side of the road as well.  I don't know the backstory behind these off-ramps, though the Hollywood Freeway is one of the oldest in Southern California.

The moki dugway might be my favorite road I've ever driven!  I took a detour from my southwest road trip just so I could drive it.  Amazing.  I know there's a guy on here who has the infamous sign at the bottom as his avatar.

Bumping this thread to show off some long exposure photos I took earlier today on a spontaneous trip down to Northern Virginia for work. These two are overlooking I-95 from the Commerce Street overpass in Springfield, with the first looking toward the Mixing Bowl. It was still slightly light outside, so it took me a few tries to finally get the correct exposure time to produce acceptable photos.

And here's one that isn't a freeway, but I still liked how it came out. Pennsylvania Avenue looking down toward the Capitol Building.

Your presumption is correct! A bicycle photobombed my photo as I was taking it. At first I wanted to try to photoshop it out, but I sort of like it.

Wow!  So many places I'd love to ride my bicycle!

There is actually a cycling site that I'll link over when I get home that has a ton of great info on road grades and conditions for almost every notable road that I find handy.  One of the big bike races out here in the Central Valley is called The Climb to Kaiser which starts out at Clovis and uses the parts of Tollhouse Road and Kaiser Pass Road which I posted pics from.  Blackrock Road is actually one of my favorite running spots since there is so little vehicle traffic on it.

I'm not into racing, but I like to ride sponsored rides, and some charity events as well.  I rode the Lupus Wolfride near Columbia, IL (outside St. Louis) and for a guy that comes from probably the flattest part of Illinois, that ride kicked my butt in a good way.

It's worth a go but I would recommend UT 24 since you get part of the Swell on it and UT 12.  I posted UT 12 a couple replies back on this thread, it's probably the most scenic highway in Utah...which says a lot considering there a ton of notables like I-70, UT 9, UT 261, and UT 9 just to name a few.  I'll have some others like UT 279 and UT 128 up here in the next day or so...completely awesome state for scenic driving.

There are overlooks that all have pull-offs, but the best views are in the east bound lanes.  1 and 5 are from this overlook:

Let's see what's on the menu for tonight out of the oldies:

I-90 Spokane, WA:

(http://i1255.photobucket.com/albums/hh630/MadMaxRockatansky73/I90spokanea_zpsubug7heo.jpg)

Some Old US 10 in the Idaho Silver Valley along with elevated I-90 in Wallace, ID:

I-96/I-275 at the Eight Mile Road/M102 junction in Farmington Hills.  Got a lot of family history here, used to live right off this exit on Eight Mile and my Dad's old office is the white building in the background:

(http://i1255.photobucket.com/albums/hh630/MadMaxRockatansky73/I275_zpslsnvkcda.jpg)

Unknown Abandoned Park Road just north of Cape Sable in Everglades National Park.  I thought this might be part of the Old Ingraham Highway but it isn't:

(http://i1255.photobucket.com/albums/hh630/MadMaxRockatansky73/IngrahamHighway2_zpshtzsg53h.jpg)

The Lanier Bridge, one of the last notable wooden deck bridges that I know of in Florida.  This would be a replacement of the older bridge which was pretty scary to drive over.  If I recall correctly this was part of the Cumpressco Railroad Grade through the ghost town of Ashley into the Green Swamp where Cumpressco was.  Basically Florida has just has many ghost towns and abandoned rail grades as any western state...fun fact if you are looking for something non-theme park related to see.  Don't go swimming in the Withlacoochee River...you'll regret stepping in that black water.

Max, I appreciate your enthusiasm for posting photos, but I don't think the point of this thread was to become your personal Flickr page.

Perhaps you're right, that being the case I opened this thread up for some of my older road photos:

http://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=19215.0

Given that it's my own thread it would give me some flexibility in regards to talking about context.  I couldn't find motivation to do anything like the full-on Road threads in the Mountain West and Pacific Southwest Boards for older stuff.  Right now I'm running into a malaise of boredom and too much time at home intermixing.  So that being the case, I hope nobody was offended by the volume of pictures here...certainly wasn't my intent.  Anyways, I'll be going through the older road stuff I have and maybe posting 10-20 a day on the thread listed above if anyone is interested.

I'm by no means offended, nor do I want to stop you (or anyone else for that matter) for sharing their photos online.  As many others do, I too have a large photo collection, and often share them on AARoads and other forums as well.

I have enjoyed seeing some new life breathed into the 'best of' photo gallery, I just want to keep the spirit of the thread as one that everyone feels welcome to share their 'best of' photos periodically, instead of it becoming a single poster's thread.

Okay cool, I just wanted to throw it there that wasn't trying to take over the thread.  I kind of needed to find a new means of posting the older stuff anyways without doing a full on replication of the threads in the Pacific Southwest or Mountain West boards.  I just don't want to overburden an existing thread or make anyone else feel unwelcome, hence the new one with just my older stuff.  Alex kind of said something in the same vein about a page back also...which is why I wanted to kind of tread lightly.  Most of the stuff I go do is pretty obscure also, so it's probably just better to leave it in a new "Max's Roads" thread instead.  I figure 10-20 a day over is probably enough if I have the time.  Most of my recent stuff is pretty organized, cataloged, and cleaned up...but that sure ain't the case the further back I go prior to 2010.

I am good with anyone posting as many photos as they want, just not in a crazy long post such as this (http://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=17354.msg2123132#msg2123132). Figured that ten per was a good separator, and if it ups users post counts, so be it.  :coffee:

Doesn't look like Wallace has changed much since they filmed Dante's Peak there.

No worries, I figured that it was a navigation thing from the get go.  It was a slog to scroll through some of those longer posts that had dozens of photos on them.  I'm actually going to do same thing in my regional threads since it's more pleasing to the eye. Things kind of worked out because a lot of the conversation has diverged into Florida talk...kind makes me wonder if I should have done a Max's Roads Florida thread. Lol.  Anyways didn't want to bog up the thread with my stuff. 

And dear god that's some intimate detail on the Loop 303.  I usually have to clean up windshield glare on my in car photos, that must have taken all day.

Doesn't look like Wallace has changed much since they filmed Dante's Peak there.

Actually they were repaving a lot of the secondary streets in town.  Many of them were actually ground down to dirt, those photos were from May last year.

You know, I used to think that would've been a good name for the Bayville-Rye Bridge that was originally supposed to connect the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway to the Cross Westchester Expressway. Now I'm not so sure anymore.

I Love that bridge.  We were there two summers ago to visit my mother in Phoeinx.  It's awesome seeing it from the Apache Highway (AZ 88) with the dam in the foreground.  I need to dig up my pictures from the trip.

^ That entire area is really cool.  I've only been out this way once, and it was really hazy over the lake, which somewhat muted how magnificent the landscape of this whole area is.  I'd love to go back there again, but there is only so much time and money to spend on such things.

Canon EOS Rebel T6. It's a beginner model for sure, but it's good enough for my college budget.  All photos above (except the bottom one, which is from my Nexus 6P) were taken with a EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens.

The bridges with those new DDIs off of I-85 are very interesting, I must say. Also, albeit this is not a DDI, nor an exit at all (it is simply an overpass), the new Skip Spann Connector bridge over I-75 in Kennesaw is very neat as well.

Canon's entry level cameras are great value for the feature set though.

If, in the future, you are looking to upgrade your lens collection, kijiji is a great place to buy used glass.

Sometimes you can find some outstanding deals on f1.8 or f1.4 prime lenses, which are great for dusk and twilight photography.  I use a 50mm f1.4 lens for a lot of road photography, and am generally always really pleased with the results.

Night-time exposure of Interstate 5 in Downtown Seattle, looking north from the Columbia Center (76 stories above street level). I had a bit of difficulty trying to get proper light trails from the cars stuck in traffic (as seen in the inbound lanes, which makes for a cool effect). Also pictured are 5 of the city's near-hundred cranes. They even get decorated for the holiday season with lights.

Sometimes you can find some outstanding deals on f1.8 or f1.4 prime lenses, which are great for dusk and twilight photography.  I use a 50mm f1.4 lens for a lot of road photography, and am generally always really pleased with the results.

Agreed...a 50mm prime is a wonderful all-round lens. While you'll rarely need f/1.8*, having a crisp image at f/3.2 or 4.0 is helpful in lower-light situations when you want to keep low ISO and/or faster shutter speeds.

Gray skies or evenings are where my prime works nicely in road photography. It also works best in manual mode, especially if your route changes directions frequently - in that case, making adjustments while moving can be tricky or unsafe. You probably don't want the aperture any wider than f/2.8 in a moving vehicle, because there's bound to be blurring of the desired subject due to parallax (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallax). One can get around that by using a higher ISO and letting the chip decide whether you'd prefer f/4.0 to f/22+ at 1/500-800s shutter speed.

The drawback is that there's times you want a wider angle, so my trusty kit lens works in most situations. While it lacks the sharpness of the prime lens, it won't drop below f/4.0-5.6, but the trade off in the image quality in dim conditions means it's a secondary choice. Arguably, it doesn't seem to have the same color gamut for shadows and it has more chromatic aberration (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromatic_aberration) in high-contrast situations. My kit lens does at least have image stabilization, which is nice for shots at 1/250-400, which normally would blur nearby objects at vehicle speeds above 25mph.

* Some bench tests show that many lower-end and mid-range lenses degrade in performance at or near their extremes (fastest/slowest shutter speeds, widest/narrowest apertures). But if you buy a lens that costs as much as a car, then you're going to get the specified results.

My biggest regret in owning a dSLR camera (or interchangeable lens camera, as is becoming the more accurate name), is actually not learning how they actually worked sooner.  For the first few years of ownership, I generally just took images using the camera's automatic settings.  While Using the camera's automatic settings produced did produce generally good results, now that I have learned how to take more control over the camera's settings, I am generally much happier with the final results.

Just my two cents of course.

Canon EOS Rebel T6. It's a beginner model for sure, but it's good enough for my college budget.  All photos above (except the bottom one, which is from my Nexus 6P) were taken with a EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens.

Canon's entry level cameras are great value for the feature set though.

If, in the future, you are looking to upgrade your lens collection, kijiji is a great place to buy used glass.

Also in my lens collection are two old Gemini film lenses from my grandfather. One is a 28mm f/2.8 wide-angle (which I haven't really used), and the other is an 80-200mm f/4.5 lens. They're obviously full-manual, but I only use the manual mode unless I'm taking a quick picture, so not a huge deal. Furthermore, my main kit lens becomes mostly useless after about 4 P.M., so I'll have to try out some dusk shots with the 28mm.

I can't help but say that is one beautiful road picture. The road looks nice, and so does the scenery. I don't think I realized some parts of Washington looked quite like that, but it's pretty. I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised, though, because a lot of eastern Oregon looks kind of like that as well.

Lovely green hills!

For now, all that green can be attributed to the huge winter storms this year.  I got this pano from 198 on the descent from the Diablo Range.  Basically it over looks the San Andreas Fault, Gabilan Range, and Santa Lucia Range off in the distance:

A couple more I thought turned out really well this year...


CA 1 in Big Sur from the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road.  This is the section from Gorda to Limekiln State Park which was cut-off by the Mudcreek Slide and Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge crumbling:

The old abandoned Eastern Dixie Highway which is near Espanola, FL:

Mountain Route 296/Yokohl Valley Drive, I thought this looked great in black and white:

Thanks for posting this!! I absolutely love that I-5 bridge across the Oregon/Washington border, and it is actually one of my favorites of all time. This is a very intriguing alternate view of it. It truly is beautiful!  :nod:

Post by: CGPerry on May 14, 2018, 03:47:15 AM
Thank you very much.  This is also one of my favorite bridges.  This view shows the southbound span, which was built in 1958.  It is very similar to the original northbound span, which opened in 1917.  Unfortunately, these bridges have outlived their usefulness.  It's a major traffic bottleneck, and there doesn't seem to be any relief in sight.  This crossing was already obsolete and over capacity the year it was built.  No improvements have been made since, save for the elimination of the toll booth.

I love taking shots like this.  Bridge shots are always tricky at night, when you are using a tripod.  On a  bridge at night, every car that goes by causes the ground to vibrate, which makes your camera jump, causing your pictures to come out blurry.  I had to take this picture nine different times, just waiting for a lull in the traffic, and even then I got a semi truck in there.

It’s been awhile since I took any real road photos, but here are a few of a section of Old Wagner Road in Petersburg, VA. I took these the other day with my Canon 50D, using a 55-250 lens. The road is still open to traffic but almost nobody uses it past the few houses on it.

Mansfield Dam and the FM 620 bridge over the Colorado northwest of Austin. Isn't this spooky lighting great? Yes, it is. I took this with my phone, and the glare was such that I could barely even see the screen, so I took the shot (OK, several shots), hoped for the best, and got it.

I'm embarrassed to admit that, while I knew of the verdant hills on that side of the city, I was unaware that they stretched so far until my daughter and son-in-law took us to a restaurant on the shore of Lake Travis. This is 19 miles by road from downtown Austin.

Used this photo of I-5 northbound for my recent album on the "Grapevine" section between CA 126 north to CA 99:

This is my all-time favorite (at least from my own pictures): the I-80/Bangerter interchange, with the Oquirrh Mountains and Great Salt Lake in the background. Taken after departing SLC, which is off the right edge of the photo.

Looks like a complicated interchange but its really a cloverleaf with a left side ramp added on one side with braided ramps and slip ramp connectors to another interchange just to the south of this.

If you have to explain it with four different descriptions, then I think it still borders on 'complicated'.

Living in Dover, I can attest to that.  On days when I take off early from work, I'm surprised by how many people actually are in downtown Monday-Friday 8-4:30 (considering the DelDOT complex is on the outskirts of Dover).

Also-perhaps we should do a "best photos of 2018" thread?  It might be easier to choose a favorite photo from your own collection when you narrow the selection pool down to one particular year.  Choosing my favorite photos from all-time sounds like much more of a daunting decision to make haha.

I was really looking forward to that weekend.  I had a solid list of everything I wanted in the city in terms of old highways and transportation infrastructure.   I actually killed the battery taking photos which I haven’t done in a long time.  Oddly I’d almost kind of compare Sacramento to how Seattle is.  Old Sacramento and Pioneer Square both are on raised street grids, both have similar vintage structures to boot.  I thought the old CA 70/99 button copy BGS on Capitol and 5th was a nice find.  It’s taken me all week to do my blog series entry and I still have some stuff left to go before I publish it.

Truth in advertising; the following isn't my best photo. It is a little blurry and off-centered. I did some touch up work on it, in photoshop.
But for those who like toilet humor in the road signs, I might have to find a way to include some 'Pee Pee' in the Portsmouth (Ohio) Roadmeet come this spring...

US 163 from Mile Marker 13 (Forest Gump Viewpoint) looking towards Monument Valley back in 2015.  This was a pain in the ass to get because I had to be on the center stripe and wait for no cars to be coming.  It probably helped that there was a flag zone a couple miles ahead in the picture for a resurfacing project.

Looking through some photos on my PC and I found this one from last June. It’s the Capital Beltway as seen from the WMATA Yellow Line during the afternoon rush hour, looking to the west. The backed-up traffic is all heading towards the Wilson Bridge over the Potomac; the two lanes to the viewer’s far left are an on-ramp from Telegraph Road and the next two lanes (where the truck is) are the “Local” carriageway. The next carriageway (“Thru”) was oddly empty—it’s usually congested too at that time of day. I don’t remember whether some incident caused it to be empty that day. (Edited to add: A Google search reveals that there had been a fatal truck crash, resulting in a fire, in the Outer Loop “Thru” lanes earlier that day.)

I like the picture because of the combination of the lighting (especially the way the sun’s rays shine down from that cloud), the sense of the multiple carriageways, the view from above, and the weird situation of the heavy traffic to the left with the other lanes so empty.

The forum software resizes widths to 800, but not height. I think you have to link to a ginormous image for it to ignore resizing.

What I was referring to is that the forum guidelines say the following. I know it isn't necessarily always enforced, but since Tapatalk asked which size to use, I figured I might as well use the one that complied with this:

Quote
Photos and images posted in forum threads should not exceed 800 pixels in width or 600 pixels in height. Everyone is not using the same monitor. To reference larger images, just add a link from the 800x600 sized image to the larger file in question.

My photo from that spot is from September 2015. Unfortunately, it's at the wrong angle compared to how Forrest Gump was shown because my wife wouldn't cooperate (she felt it wasn't safe to stand in the road on a highway with a 65-mph speed limit).

He he.  I remember one time, my sister and her friends and I were driving from Denver back to northwestern Kansas in the evening after dark.  My sister was driving, and she was getting tired, worried about falling asleep at the wheel.  So she pulled over on the side of the road, and we all got out and started doing stretches and jumping-jacks in the middle of US-36.

I once stopped (I was by myself) in the right lane of I-495 in Delaware under an overpass in order to chip ice off my windshield wipers because the weather was bad enough that they'd become largely useless due to being caked with ice. There was so little traffic by that point that I wasn't much worried about stopping on the highway, and as I recall the shoulder was a mess so I didn't want to stop there. Looking back now, I probably I should have stopped for the night somewhere, but I was driving home from depositions in New Jersey and I didn't think the client would be likely to reimburse me for a hotel on the way home. (Why was I on I-495 coming back from New Jersey? The southern end of the Turnpike was closed due to weather issues. Instead of I-95 through Philadelphia and then I-495, I should have gone west to Harrisburg and then south.)

Damn, I love that western span of the Bay Bridge. Normally not a fan of infrastructure that's really imposing (Alaskan Way Viaduct, for example), but that bridge, somehow despite its hugeness, fits in brilliantly. The color too. Boring to some, but I think the way they've painted everything silver is really cool, almost reminiscent of the Akashi Kaikyo suspension bridge in Japan.

^^^

The older bridge was kind of ugly in my opinion and if it wasn't connected to Yerba Buena Island/Treasure Island it would have been more of an eye sore than curiosity.  The new bridge seems to have taken some of the good elements from the Golden Gate Bridge with the suspension spans but put a modern twist on it that actually works.  Usually I'm not a fan of modern infrastructure design over old but the new Bay Bridge is definitely more pleasing to the eye.
