Hitting the trails hard in the Chevy with the @mexican_cowboy

This weekend we too to the trails just behind some homes in the San Fernando Valley.  Though it was a hot weekend it was a surprise to see some water left over from the night before.  Not one to pass up on an opportunity to take his truck for a dip Tavern went full bore through this trail. I shot this with my 85mm prime at ISO 1000, f/4.0 and 1/1250sec.

Hitting the streets of San Fernando in the Chevy looking to do a little off-roading.

When Tavern picked up this truck it wouldn't even run. But with some automotive knowledge and a little elbow grease he was able to breath some life into this once dead vehicle. For most this would be a family vehicle or some daily driver. Not the case for this Chevy. Now that he has the truck running it has remained  under construction toward becoming a beastly off-roading machine.

We hit the trails out on the back side of El Cariso park. The truck handled the steep hills and rocky terrain with no problems. Taverns years of off-roading expierence made running this track a breeze. Coming from the central coast where it's all about driving the dunes in Oceano this was a welcomed change.  I took this photo at ISO 400, f/4.0, and 1/800sec with my 50mm prime. I also positioned myself on a higher vantage point to photograph the truck, and crouched down to get a view from down under. My camera was set to a continuous focus to keep the grill sharp while moving.
