Shooting your 4×4 can be challenging, sometimes all those images begin to look the same, the truck is the truck, it can’t pose like a model so backdrop becomes key to change things up a bit.
When you come across a landmark or a situation you know straight away that it’s going to be good for the ‘gram’ or your website and this is what happened to us a few weeks ago near the Murcia border.
Driving through the woods in the Sierra de María-Los Vélez we stumbled across some Andalucian mines, you can see them from a few kilometers away, carved out from the top of the mountain but when you arrive there, see a track that ‘looks’ like it ‘might’ just get you up there you have to take a look right?
Here is what we found:
A few years we had a photo shoot with a local band and used an old abandoned mine near our home village for a different backdrop, the scale though was nothing compared to this. These blocks are big and they are scattered all over the mountain.
So a great opportunity to get the Shogun in there and do something a little different.
Getting a realistic scale of these blocks. When you come across something like this it’s hard to pass up the opportunity to open up the camera bag, it’s also another something that overlanding delivers to us as sometimes you never know what might be around the corner or up the next track.
Exploration certainly has it’s rewards.
