"Who's the Dummy Now?"


It's Day 7 of my Southwest Photo Caravan in Utah. We started out in Arches National Park and then moved to Bryce. Right now we are in Zion. All the workshop students are doing wonderful work.

On Day 1, I told everyone not to speed in the parks and along the state roads. This is good advice if you come here.

Well, all I can say is, "What a dummy!"

As we were riding down State Road 89, I spotted a dummy in a police vehicle at the beginning of a small town. Of course, this police set-up is designed to keep people from speeding. Good idea!

As we were leaving the small town, I spotted another police set up. So, because I like to have fun on my workshops, I popped out of my car for a quick fun shot. There was not a policeman in sight when this picture was taken. This is just a fun set-up shot.

Speaking of my photo caravan, some of the folks rented cars from "Rent a Wreck." Here's a shot of one of our pit stops. :-)

Actually, this is an official stop on my photo caravan. It's great for HDR and straight photography. Juan Pons and I will be stopping here on the May 2011 Digital Photo Experience (DPE) Photo Caravan. I hope you can join the fun. Contact us through DPE – where I have been posting pictures from the workshop all week.

Here's my latest shot, from Bryce today at sunrise. The canyon seemed to be aglow with the morning light.

Explore the light,
Rick

Rick, tell the officer what I always say: "I always drive the speed limit, at least." (I am a law enforcement officer).
