Thread: Cambria - 2011

    Cambria - 2011

    I thought I'd share this photo record of a trip put together around a rental house with a limited number of rooms. This set of pictures shows why I love California, and why the Z8 is absolutely the best seat in the house to enjoy all its stunning roads and scenery from.

    Day 1 - the drive to Cambria.

    On our second day away we swapped the silky smooth power of our glorious Z8's for something a lot rougher to discover the lunar landscape of Pismo Dunes. This is another of Californias natural wonders, and something that really has to be seen to be believed.

    A good portion of day three was spent on the open road testing GoPro HD cameras in various positions, which will appear as a video once we have time to get all the variations edited together. We all left early on the morning of day four, three cars heading north, and three south. Over the next few days I'll also add some more images to the gallery.

    Here are a few I captured from the three days. For some reason, I've found that I get photo-lazy with Andrew around, knowing that everything will be beautifully documented.

    The photo of Clive in the helmet on the beach shows how good the whacky electronic shutter on the G10 can be with flash.

    One last one of team "Lamb on Lamb".

    Rifle, very funny!!! The lamb in the car and the license plates are a classic. I am sure no one else who wasn't on the trip has a clue what we are talking about, but we know and it is hilaious.
