"QUANTUM SHOT" #201


Some off-roading can border on suicide.

Don't get me wrong, I own a Jeep and will go off road with the first opportunity. However, some of the following shots stretch the realms of possibility and can be deemed either Photoshop or "simply nuts".

We'll start with the Hummers climbing exercise on The Lions Back, Moab, Utah:

I've run some 4wd roads in the mountains of Colorado, and while the uphills might have been tough at 13 and 14 thousand feet elevations, let's just say I was really glad I wasn't driving. Scary stuff!!

See if you can find a pic for the Paikakareke road on the North Island of New Zealand.

FWIW, the bushducks.com one is not very wild at all. The camera is tilted and the horizon is at a 30 degree angle; look at the trees in the background or the rear end of the vehicle, which, if the camera is level, is suspended in an impossible manner.

I'm pretty sure Rollins Pass is inaccessible by car due to huge concrete barrier @ the Needle Eye tunnel
