For #joinindaily  today's theme as chosen by +Johnny Wills is black cars.

A recent re-post, but it fits the theme. This was a parking lot shot taken during an event. I thought it needed a little spicing up. :)

RUN U OVR

Randy Swartz, Randy's Off-Road at Tierra del Sol Desert Safari. Desert Safari was held at the Salton Sea this year, a real life post-apocalyptic wasteland, so I couldn't help but think that Randy had a Mad Max vibe going on.

I believe that truck is The Cheetoh, but he has two with similar paints jobs...not sure if this is the little one or the bigger one haha!!

Hazards of the Job

No joke here! Watch this insane video for the blonde in the neon green media vest near the end to see just how dangerous it can be to photograph off road racing and why my husband wants to increase my life insurance.  I'm lucky that Mel is a very skilled driver who was able to get EVO1 back under control quickly.

King of the Hammers 2015, Johnson Valley CA

The defining characteristic of the ULTRA4 race class is that all cars must be capable of 4-wheel drive. Beyond that, the class is unlimited. These cars come in all shapes and sizes and are capable of speeds over 100+ MPH and still contain gear ratios as low as 100 to 1 for technical rock crawling.

Randy Slawson taking the checkered flag to win the King of the Hammers off road race in Johnson Valley, CA. Known as the toughest off race in the world, only 17 of the 132 drivers finished the 215 mile race before the 10pm cutoff this year. This was Slawson's second win; he was also crowned King in 2013 and is now one of three two-time winners. 

On a personal note - the sun was sinking low when we heard that the leaders were just a few miles out from the finish line. We had that gorgeous golden light and I was picturing a beautiful backlit rooster as Randy came around that final bend to the finish. As we all stood shoulder to shoulder waiting to see if it would be Randy or Erik Miller to cross the line first, the sun slipped behind the mountains. Light fades fast in those first 15 minutes or so after the sun sets and there was only one (very) small light over the finish line, so I was checking my settings every 30 seconds...I'm losing shutter speed, open the aperture, too slow again, raise the ISO, oh no too slow again, raise the ISO a bit more, car coming in to the pit, test shutter speed, then I realized that the rigs have their lights on now...that's going to affect my exposure! ...still loosing light fast, keep that shutter speed up, still thinking about those lights coming right at me...I was just about to give up hope of getting a sharp shot at a respectable ISO when in comes Randy flying to the finish. When 2nd place Erik Miller crossed the line a few minutes later, it was hopeless. Low light action photography is nerve wracking!
