Photo of the Day - August 18th, 2018

Today's Photo of the Day comes from the idyllic Kinney Reservoir. This man made lake sits approximately 8500 feet above sea level, beside one of my favourite driving roads in America, The Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway. This narrow, winding road loaded with tight hairpins takes in some amazing scenery in the Californian high country and is well worth a visit during the 6 months or so a year that it is open. Check out the Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway website here, and while you're in the area, drop in to Arnold and have a bite to eat at Giant Burger.

The Photo of the Day for today comes from New Zealand. This is the crater of Mount Eden, shot at dawn with the city of Auckland in the background. Mount Eden is one of a number of dormant volcanoes in the Auckland region and in my opinion, one of the best places to watch the sunrise over the city.

Photo of the Day - August 1st, 2018

The Photo of the Day today is Richard and Mike Collison's 1950 Buick Straight Eight, at the SCTA's Bonneville SpeedWeek 2010. This car was built with a little help from Gary Hart and sponsored by DIYAutoTune.com. The teams SpeedWeek 2010 campaign was cut short by a couple of holes in the block courtesy of the number 2 con rod. As you can see here, this is one beautiful race car, and hopefully still ready to race, although I can't find any mention of it on the salt much after 2010.
