This weeks addition to the old experience bucket is a day long drive in a Mustang Bullitt. Long story short. In July I got to spend sometime in a 2010 Camaro. I was impressed and said when it launches the base Mustang will be a gelding in comparison. Ford didn't appreciate it. They dropped me a note and let me know I was probably a little harsh and offered up a GT500 to prove the Mustang still has it. No GT500's exist right now but they had a Bullitt. They asked if I would settle for that. HELL YESSSSS!!!! Full story on what I think about the Bullitt will be up on metblogs later today.
The image was shot up on the Angeles Crest. I can tell you that the Bullitt was made for that highway. No stress, no fuss, no constant shifting, just pick a gear and carve up the curves on the twisties. Lawdy be...if I could get rid of the Dad car I'd opt for the Bullitt.
Anyway what better way to illustrate a surreal day than HDR? I shot this frame overlooking downtown LA from up on the crest bracketed +/- 2 stops from average. Photomatix was used for the HDR file generation and tonemapping. The final image was run through virtual photographer to heighten the saturation a bit more.
Enjoy the image. Do click it for a slightly bigger version...and note you can even see downtown in the fog. More images in my flickr Bullitt set.
