m4/3 shot from a moving vehicle [add your images here]
7

I've gotten a few interesting shots from the road recently. Please add your images shot from a moving vehicle here - include location notes.

3 of mine below: 2 with the Dramatic Tone filter on the Olympus E-M5, and one straight.

This one at 150mm (300mm EFL) at 1/640 second. Focus acquisition (and vehicle vibration) was no problem, in part I think from the excellent IBIS:

sprinklers, I-5, Fresno County CA

smoke & clouds, San Joaquin County CA

railroad bridge, I-80 near Auburn CA

Nice shots, I'm assuming you weren't driving the car at the time?

Here's one shot out a bus window from a recent trip in Yunnan, China:

I like that Vlad but would take out the right lean.

Yes, my shots were just as a passenger.  I love the interplay of curve of the road and clouds/fog in your shot.

I did try that. Right now the two towers are converging towards the center at a roughly equal angle, but the horizon is leaning. The perspective is difficult, because I was shooting upwards and to the side. Trying to make it square is totally incongruent with the camera being in the right lane, and the shot is fairly wide angle. After squaring the image the perspective distortions become quite intolerable, especially the cars. You are welcome to play with the image and post your version here.

Vehicle in this case = riding the ropeway (cable car) up to the castle at Iwakuni, Japan. Kintai Bridge (old type arched wooden construction) down below.

Slightly fiddled to help remove the smoggy effect that is everywhere in Japan.
