I work for SkipBarber Racing School, my location is on site at the track we were doing a 3-Day school, renting the track. I got permission from the track first but did not go around the course my time was limited but I have taken a M35A2 military truck around full course with crew on a pace lap. Fun stuff.

The problem I had with this one was: Since there was no water showing, I could not tell whether that was fog over the ocean or in one of the central California Valleys. I did a cursory search, but after that the task was too daunting. By the time your hint came along, I had lost interest. However I don't think I would have made the sir vs Sur connection anyway.

But that opinion also leads immediately to another: One reason why the West is so popular among those with cameras essentially boils down to the distinction between taking pictures and doing photography. Yes, the West has lots of snapshot-taking opportunities, one after another by the hundreds, until they become all the same. But if you take the time to do it right, the West also affords the colors, the lighting and the locations for fantastic photography, as an examination of the photos at something like this group shows:

You are absolutely correct. Thanks for the link.

Taking pictures is a skill in that you must know how to operate the camera.

Photography is an art that requires a specific set of talents. Like music, the work must be pleasing to at least a sub set of people. Perhaps, partially because I have not devoted much time to learning either, but its more likely to me,that I do not possess the basic talent, I am unable to produce either music or visual art that is pleasing to even me. Granted, utilizing the "blind squirrel" effect, I do take a pleasing picture once in a while. However any attempt I have ever made to make any type of music has always been met with, "Stop that gosh awful noise"

So I will continue to enjoy the fruits of the labor of others. Does that make me a leech in the artistic world, or a provider of the funds that allows it to thrive?

Well said, Ken!

Good photography is something that I strive for, but will never, ever attain. But that doesn't stop me from practicing, reading about it, studying it, pretty much the whole obsessive story. (Here is a nice little free ebook, by the way.) In the end, it's a pretty good replacement obsession for my previous-life obsession with cogsci.

Wow,

I just checked your Flickr link in your signature. There's no doubt you are a photographer rather than a picture taker.

Dang, I've seen that shot before, but can't remember where I saw it or what it is. Obviously, it's in red-rock country, probably northeastern AZ or southeast UT, but just can't remember any more!

If I had a chance to name it, It would be Slingshot Rock and if it wasn't already there, I'd move it to Utah.

This is what I found about this place:

Ear of the Wind

"Natural arch of de Chelly sandstone. Located within the central section of Monument Valley; Navajo Tribal Park, Arizona. Access to this site is only possible with the escort of a native Navajo guide."
