I’ll post about GAMCON tomorrow – it was a lot of fun, thanks for everyone who came! – but today, it’s the photos from the trip back from Greenland. Large versions on Flickr, as usual.
If we did a live album of these shows, or, for that matter, of all this whole tour? This would be the album cover. Totally the cover.
Taking the High Road
Yep, it’s a desert – all these were taken from the car on the way north and west.
I took a lot of mountain pictures, but they were all from windows and only a couple came out. But they aren’t bad:
Desert Range 2
Getting a decent lens flare on a phone camera isn’t easy! I didn’t even do it on purpose, it just worked out that way. I thought it was worth posting for that alone:
Arc of a Driver
I wasn’t sure whether to I took a few of these as the sun set; the colours at the edges were really interesting:
Approaching Wormhole – Confirm Destination Vector
We saw a lot of these little white plumes along fences – it wasn’t smoke, it was just some sort of vapour rise at sunset. But that’s not poetic, so I called it…
Yes, I was taking panoramas from a moving car. The amazing thing is that some of them actually worked!
High Tension in the Distance
I brought up the lows a bit in this shot, because it was too dark, but it’s still just dark enough to call it…
The Dark of Sunset
The sharp edges of the mountains here are so stark. I imagine trying to climb them.
The Range and Road Go On and On
But then the rendering engine decided it couldn’t keep up. Clearly I need to upgrade reality’s graphics card. Or maybe I just need a new driver. I haven’t had time to be sure.
These came out really well for being shot through a bug-splattered windshield.

And finally, before darkness set too far in to shoot.
