On the weekend, I finished off my time out West with a little bit of off-road fun.

Yes, he's buckled in, but he didn't like his head being whipped around,
so we clung to each other for support.

 Grand #2 and I had a blast in the back seat for the first go-around.
What a bouncy ride, with steep pitches as the jeep tackled verticals of 25 degrees.
I had to close my eyes and stop myself from screaming.  It felt like 90 degrees, straight up!!!

My son was brave enough to allow his father to take the wheel.

When this shot was taken, Hubby was hooting and making unmanly sounds.
Too bad I was't able to get a face-shot of his girly hollerings!

The Can-Traffic Services Cochrane facility has lots of interesting structure to play with for
Black and White Wednesday.

So here is my entry for this week...

I pushed the ISO to create an ethereal effect.
Please enlarge by clicking on these photos to better appreciate them.

This second one is a bonus shot for fun.

I know how much fun the jeep was. That's what we do when we aren't hiking! Nice photo effects also. Hope you are doing well!

Thanks for linking up this week! I really don't know what happened last week. But these black and white shots are truly unique and really do have a "not of this world" feel.

good luck in the contest

The last set of photos was really cool as well! Love the effects! :)

oh these are fun photos! reminds me of camping once with my grandparents and my grandpa taking us off-roading. i was sitting in the back seat and bounced so out of control that i hit my face on the spare tire that was back with me and ended up with a terrible bloody nose lol....lots of great memories camping with my grandparents!
i would love to be able to hear your hubbies unmanly hollering ha, too funny! cool b/w's!!!

My husband would love something like this. Me not so much. I really like the photos that you took. The black and white ones are really cool looking.

My daughter loves off roading in the mountains, something I have skipped doing LOL. Looks like you had a blast.
Love the photos :)

Hi Rosemary. What great photos you have taken there at the end. Wow! that off-road experience looks a little frightening to me! I did smile at what you said about your hubby whilst on the ride!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Oh how FUN! Bet there was a lot of hysterical giggling going on during the off-road portion! :) Love all the shots! :)

That looked like a lot more fun than off-road on a mountain bike. 25 degrees and you didn't have to push it up.

Veronica Lee said...

OMG!! How fun is that!! Love the pics, Rosemary!

Tami said...

I'm trying to make myself say that looks like fun - but I'm not totally convinced. :) Anything to have fun with the grands, though!
