I took a chance with this shot, I was the passenger in a car with a sunroof and decided I would get a better shot if I stuck it out of the top of the car and sure enough I pulled off this subtly tilted image here which ended up giving a nice sense of movement to the photo I think. Seeing as I was in a moving car I could only squeeze in a couple of shots before the landscape rolled on without me but I like the way this came out, not perfect or anything but unique in a way. While I don’t always suggest shooting without looking through the viewfinder, sometimes you just have to go for it and hope for the best.

After years with the same camera and lens I know my setup well enough to get the results I am looking for when shooting blind. I find I really perfected this type of shooting when traveling and being too shy to really lean into the shot and get all set up and perfect through the viewfinder. I have taken a lot of photos I may not have been able to get otherwise using this method and while it doesn’t always work I do manage to put it to good use from time to time.

    Very nice photo. The guy driving towards you is probably thinking “What does that guy have coming from the top of his car?”.

    I absolutely love this! Especially the angle. I think you may have sealed the deal for me to sell my 50 1.4 and 20 2.8 and get the 35mm :)

    Brilliant shot. Cheers

Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
