Why Am I Here?

September 27th, 2011

Carhenge composite final fr Why Am I Here?

Now on our third day stranded in Alliance.  Why would anyone ever come to Alliance, you might ask?  Well, there’s only one reason…Carhenge.

I first visited Carhenge shortly after it was created in 1987.  I was on a motorcycle trip with my best friend, Ken.  We stopped and spent the night in a tent right at Carhenge and did photos throughout the night…and endured a rainstorm as well.  Ken got the photos he was after, and if you’ve seen photos of Carhenge, they might well have been Ken’s.  But I got a different photo in my head and have wanted to create it for all those years.  That’s why we were on our way to Alliance when the deer decided to change our plans.

We are still stuck waiting for the truck to be repaired.  It’s sounding like we may be here another night.  But I rented a car so we could get around and this morning before dawn we drove outside town to Carhenge and I finally was able to make the photo that I had imagined all those years ago.

This is a quick and dirty edit on the laptop from the jpegs.  When I get home I’ll be able to do a cleaner job on the big computer and working from the RAW files.  But this one holds up well enough for the web.  To get a better view you’ll need to click on it, and then click on it again when it comes up in the second window…some quirk in this blog software makes you do that…the second click will give you a view that fills your screen so you can see it better.

Thanks to Brooke and Kat for making this photo finally become a reality.
