You Ought to be in Pictures…
This year’s Hell on Wheels ride was full of magical moments and stunning vistas that begged to be preserved in pictures. Fortunately for all of us there is no shortage of people committed to making that happen. This time around we had three official photographers join the 2,200 unofficial photographers on the road, in camp and in all the other hidden places we manage to uncover along the way.
One of the most common questions we are asked after the ride is where people can go to view all the photos and relive the good times. Many also want to know how they can get copies or prints.
During the ride, some of the best shots from Greg Lee, Rohith Gunawardena and Dean Rodgers are processed and make their way onto the Cycle Oregon Facebook page, Instagram, The Cycle Oregonian and elsewhere.
After the ride, each photographer processes a superset of images, which they then post to their own individual websites. These sites provide quick and easy access to several hundred images, which can be viewed as thumbnails or as full screen slideshows. They are also where you can purchase high resolution downloads or prints.
If you haven’t seen them yet, you’re in for a treat. Greg’s images are at http://cycleorgon-photoguy.smugmug.com, Rohith’s images are at http://rohithg.smugmug.com and Dean’s images are at http://imagesbykoifish.photoshelter.com.
For the past several years, a flickr group has been created for each ride where everyone is encouraged to share their own work. This year’s is at http://www.flickr.com/groups/co2015.
Do you have images (or blog posts or video or any other type of content) you’d like to share? If so, please add them to the flickr group or post a link in the comments section of this post or on Facebook. If you post to Instagram or Twitter, don’t forget to use the #ridecycleoregon hashtag.
