I just live about 45 minutes up US27 from you. Riding our hot flat roads are kind of bitter/sweet after an epic trip.
Thanks for the very kind words, I'm feeling the same urge to hit the road again. Guess I'll have to wait, this is the start of the season for me at the studio and it will be some time until I can ride again. After 10 weeks, though, I can't complain much!

You're right, riding again in Flat Pancake Florida will be a biter/sweet experience! Another reason to start planning the next big one...

Stay well!

I can see why you can make a living as a photographer. many time while I am riding I come upon some thing totally beautiful but I have no place to pull over and get the pic. Every one of your pictures are fantastic. Keep up the good work.

Glad your home safe and sound. I got home before you, Mike and I made it to KeyWest so the Ultimate Coast to coast is "in the can".
Completed the trip with little problems.
As all have said Great Pic's and video.. Brings back many memories.



Ride Safe..

Very professional!
(you are a professional photographer)...
Thanks for sharing all the technical details of your work, really helps the rest of us. (never even heard of a Micro 4/3 )

One question I did not see here yet..Did you do much post editing of the photo's posted here on ADV?

If so, what do you recommend?

Thanks or posting!

Thanks, Scott. I went through the same situation many times during my trip, the best photos of them all are the ones I didn't take because it was just impossible at the time: no place to stop, close traffic and so on. Always an excuse to ride these places once again.

Hey Mitch, good to hear from you! I followed Mike's blog and read all about the trip back from Prudhoe Bay. You both rode back fast! I ended up staying out longer than I'd planned, but the coast of Oregon, Utah and Colorado were too good to explore. Let me know when you're free for a weekday ride, now my photo season has started and I don't have a single weekend free until the end of the year. Same for the first semester of 14. Now I know why I decided to stay out for so long..

Thanks, Juan! I always shoot in RAW, so post processing is a natural part of my workflow. I use Lightroom and Photoshop, trying to keep the processing as simple as it can be: contrast, white balance, exposure. With these two programs, you can do pretty much anything you need, the trick being always shooting in RAW because of the flexibility it allows.

You got it!!! I'm free anytime, though I have a problem with the bike now. Seems as if that Alaska mud messed up my turn indicators.. Three blinks blows the fuse, instruments and causes the ABS to die.. I'm working on it as we speak (type?).

I think it's funny that the ever so reliable japanese bike has a problem but the Triumph Explorer and the GS had no problems!!!

BTW I followed your blog also and it was great.. Did you stop smoking?

vamos falar em breve

[QUOTE=visualizerent;22385158]RAW! got it...(learn something new every day hangin' around here)

So how do you know or learn how to adjust things in RAW???

Is there like a MSF course on this thing??

You brought back a Dalton Hwy gremlin, Mitch. Good luck sorting it out! Yes, the Suzuki should have been more reliable for sure. My GSA went through the 19,000 problem free, except for two burned headlight bulbs.

We will get together soon, and this time you will have a non-smoker rider next to you: I finally quit the day after I got home. Not easy, not at all, but one month already today and I'm feeling great!

Stay well!
