CJ,,,,,,,,, your shots of the Alaska Highway look good to me. Like Dusty says,,,,, it's a matter of taking many shots and sorting through them for the good ones ya get.

My first trip out west, I took 2,400 shots,,,, last trip (NASSIR-2) I took a little over 2,100 shots. Unlike Ken, I have my camera mounted with a RAM Mount on the clutch side. I end up with shots through my windshield, where Dusty just holds his over his shield.

I have a simple Kodak Easy Share with 7.1 mega pixel. And I didn't know till just now after reading Dusty's post, that there were different zoom features. Mine is Digital, Dusty's is Optical.
I will say, Ken does capture the colors and scenery like a pro. But I think I get some pretty good shots all the same.

Here is a shot through the shield while moving,,,(bugs and all )

And here is a pic of some crazy guy standing near the edge of a cliff

Another while moving approx. 50 mph with the camera turned to the right of me as I passed by,,,,,,

You have to be a little Crazy,,,,,, or else you\'ll go Insane.
