Griffon's 2009 Coaster Gallery


Recommended Posts

Now that the snow outside is being measured in feet instead of inches, I've had quite a bit of time today to sort through pictures from this year and pulled out the ones that stood out the most. Despite not posting many trip reports in 2009, I actually had a very solid year traveling to familiar parks, new parks, and finally reaching my goal of 200+ credits.

 

Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the year. These are the images that jump out the most to me and seem to capture the main points of interest in the places I visited. Hopefully they will be interesting to other people as well.

My blurry, underexposed, off-centered, last shot ever of the wolf. An unfortunate ending to a great coaster season, but I'm definitely looking forward to 2010.

I sort of like this one because there is 1 person on the ride

Details, Freestyle Music Park. As lackluster as the rides are, I still hope this park finds a way to stay open

Americana was moved from the great state of Ohio to Kings Dominion this year and provides some new vantage points of the park

The symbol of greatness in a wooden coaster collection. I would never pass up the opportunity to go back to Holiday World.

Kings Island after the storm

Diamondback was a decent ride and had some good photo spots. I thought this one came out pretty sharp.

A memorable #200 at Indiana Beach

I happened to be at Indiana Beach on Memorial Day. It was raining, I was on the Shafer Queen, and I saw this shot that really summed everything up in black and white.

Mamba from outside of the park. This helix was also one of my favorites on any coaster.

My favorite ride to photograph, Dominator looks great from almost any angle

Thanks, I'm not a pro, but I've been more serious about photography the last year or so. I use a Canon SLR and mostly a wide zoom lens in parks. Glad you guys like the shots even though i only have a few.

Some really beautiful and almost surreal pictures, fantastic work.

 

Would you consider putting up a .zip download or something similar? These would make great wallpapers, I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate high-resolution versions, myself included.

 

Keep up the great work!

 

EDIT: Also, is the lens flare in the Time Machine picture edited in?

Those are awesome! I actually really like the last one. The blurrinness makes it look kinda said wich is good because it is said that BBW is now gone. Since this is something I'm interested in, could someone tell me how you get everything in black & white except for one color?

I can try to put some of these in a zip file. I think the largest size I saved the edited versions is 1920x1280. I'll check that out a little later.

 

The lens flare in the Time Machine pic is from Photoshop. It looks much better that way.

It's all in the selection tool in Photoshop. I selected the red track and desaturated everything outside of that selection.
