Canon 5D Mark 2 24-105mm 1:4 lens. Photoshop CS5

This is a 1949 Ford coupe Custom 2 tone and it’s the only one I’ve ever seen. The background is taken from a high vantage point at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.
These once-in-a-lifetime images are combined and turned into a night scene that is strictly from my imagination. For me, that’s the whole point of why I do this. It’s all about taking the things in life that are real and remixing them into the realm of fantasy. I think that is what nostalgia is all about. It’s recreating the past in a way that is better than it really was. So enjoy the view of this perfect automobile in the perfect setting under the glow of a perfect moon. Kind of makes you feel better doesn’t it?

The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    Outstanding work once again. You must be on the lookout for great road shots whenever traveling, well done.

  • I’ve traveled a good bit and I take photo archiving seriously. That’s important when you want to combine images. Thanks very much Randy.
