The Airstream is mobile once more!

It’s been quite a while since the Airstream was hitched up and put out on the road.  For shame, for shame.  But I’m now redeeming myself, and making my Airstream happy once again.

This morning I hitched up at Point of Rocks and rolled out for what may be the last time there.  With the larger living space acquired the Airstream doesn’t need to be at Point of Rocks any longer.  Believe me, I tried to come up with reasons to leave it there, but none really made financial sense (I really tried).

Fortunately, with the new “static” living space the Airstream has been cleaned out and has become road ready once again.  Hopefully this means more trips this year.  And today starts out the new trips!

For this week I decided to stay close to home.  I’m still in Arizona, and back in a favorite place once again.  Right now the Airstream is parked on the edge of the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument.  A favorite location for me.  And this week’s trip promises a lot.

Tomorrow I’ll be out shooting with a model who I’ve known for a couple of years.  Looking at image after image that I’ve taken here something stands out to me.  No sense of scale.  Sure more than a few stunning images have been created on my trips to this area, but I really want to relay the scale of the locations.  What better way to do it than with a model in tow.

So tomorrow we’ll be lugging two Alien Bees, a few Canon DSLRs, power packs, soft boxes, and more through dunes and into some pretty amazing rock formations.  My hope?  To create an epic image that will become a personal favorite for years to come.  No small task.  We’ll see how I do soon enough!

The rest of the week will find me moving around.  A few favorite locations (eh hmm), and a few locations that I’ve always wanted to visit but never found the time.  It should be quite an adventure!
