Was out looking for landscapes.  The light wasn't great. Snapped this Renault.

In these here parts the rules are simple but unequivocal:

1. Stick to the path.

2. Beware the full moon.

This driver made a rookie mistake.

1/125th, f11, ISO 100, 52mm.

Taken up on the raised bogs, in the Wicklow mountains just to the south of my house.  Lots of narrow twisty roads.

All CC welcomed.

Hopefully no one was hurt. It definitely makes for an interesting subject. I am not sure what you could change but I think I want it to look more like a newspaper capture and less like a landscape image if that makes sense.

When photographing motor vehicles I like to turn the front wheels off the straight ahead position....(-:

 

Rod, my first thought when I saw the location and the vehicle upside down was that the cat would be the first thing to go... and when enlarged it seems it has... Apparently cats have a high scrap value due to the metals involved..

 

Other than that the landscape looks just great, a nice place to be for sure.

That driver would fit right in here in LA...except someone would have stolen the wheels by now :D Fun shot Rod, I think that was your intent but sure looks like a beautiful place, love the roadway way down there on the left!

A beautiful place to crash. Hopefully none was hurt.

Thanks, John.  Thats a very interesting idea.  So, would that mean high contract b&w, saturated blacks and whites with maybe some grain thrown it ?

I'll play with it  tonight.

Geedee, it was a strange scene.  When I reached it, there was a car stopped and the driver was looking at the the renault.

I wasn't sure if it had just occurred so I had a quick look inside - no bodies and the exhaust was stone cold.  There were no skidmarks so probably low speed job and he just fell off the road and rolled over.  I bet the car was stolen.

Never thought I'd hear someone compare LA with North Wicklow ! Better not let the locals know - it will give 'em ideas...

No bodies in the car, Mark <_<

Nice - what timing.  No skid marks - I bet the driver left some in their drawers  :huh:

Wise words, Jonny.  That would be up to the forensic traffic division of the GardaĆ­ to establish, but there's no doubt in my mind.. ;)

The accident happened at a 90 deg, bend in the road. It's one of the old military roads build by the British in 1800, (about two uprisings ago). :)

The road is raised above the surrounding bog, so if you go off, then you're off for keeps, unless...... you're driving one of these.  (I wonder if there's an electric option ?)

Yoiks.  I actually think the juxtaposition between a landscape shot and a tabloid crash scene kind of works.  However, I might have been tempted to shoot from the front of the car and use the leading lines in the same was as you would a regular landscape.  You sure do live in lovely country.  Ireland is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.

Oye!  That gives a new meaning to "wheels up"!

Thanks Kerry, It was the incongruity of the scene that tickled me.  As usual, I didn't stop to think about composition before I clicked.  Very much like the driver of yon car when he floored the pedal. ;)

Good one David :P

Hi John.

 

Don't know if this is the sort of thing you meant ?

Pushed the blacks and whites and applied some grain.

Making something pretty out of someone else's misery....there must be a German word for that.  :D

 

With our winter months coming up I will probably be seeing many cars in this position here when the roads get icy.  Nobody knows how to drive in icy/snowy weather here.  Last November we had a freezing drizzle event move though one evening around rush hour and in the span of 3 hours there were over 110 car accidents with 2 fatalities around the Oklahoma City Metro.

Ouch!  Freezing rain gives the driver little chance.  We get the usual storms and rain but so far, severe low temperature events are not common. (Famous last words....)
