Washed up the Pioneer over the weekend for a few picture on my dozer trails. Our property suffered a wildfire in 2006, showing the lack of trees and mostly oak brush. I'm still bulldozing open areas and planting for deer and elk, and cutting lot and lots of firewood today. You can see in pic one the rocky steep terrain with lots of dead fall so the 8 ply tires are much needed. Also where I ride, seat belts are required. If you run off my trails, its 1/2 mile to the bottom! :eek:
Here's a couple pics, and the rest will be in the Photo Gallery section. Also the admin talked about a new header for the top of the page with maybe some personal photos, so lets work on that and get lots of pictures to choose from.

My vote for Pioneer of the Month. Can't get over how much I love those wheels. Loss from the wildfire looks devastating... good luck with everything.

best pic, looks rough and ready to rumble.

These are amazing pictures. Almost look like professional shots. Too bad about that forest fire, but they say that the burnt debris make really fertile soil for new growth.

How big is your property? It looks beautiful.

That's what I noticed too, these photos are great, just as good as the pro's. I think the OP just has an eye for photography and it shows in the pictures here.

We'll have to see more :D

Thank you all for the nice comments!

I wouldn't call myself a professional Photographer, but do have a lot of photo experience and great equipment. I shoot with a Nikon D7000 digital body and Nikkor VR Lenses have about $4000.00 into the whole outfit. I also make adjustments in Adobe Photoshop that helps a bunch.
It doesn't take a lot of money with the digital cameras these days as great photos come from point and shoots. I shot these as the sun just went down (no hard sunlight) and best time to shoot is morning, evenings or overcast days. I'm working on Video stuff next.

Thanks Zeus....240 acres

looks good but .........how do you keep it sooooooo clean while riding .....lol
I had just washed it for the shoot...it was a mess LOL.

Awesome!!...let's go hunting :D
Just took a small buck, but planting more oats this spring. Had some beautiful bull elk here during archery season.

Great shots, Colorado!

I understood you profited the period between sunset and dark night. Am I right? Do you have an idea of the f. and speed you have used for this one?

My stuff is a more modest analogic Nikon F-601, great camera that I don't use anymore, and a Lumix DCM-FZ50.

Thanks again you all and glad you enjoyed the view. I had fun shooting and will have more to come soon.

Rod, here's the "exif" file info for the shot. Looks like f/8 and shutter 1/100. Metering Mode 2 is Center Weighted and had the ISO set @400 and fired the flash.
Yes, all shots after sunset to avoid direct sunlight as this washes out color and causes more shadowing. I always did most of my wildlife photography in the first hour of morning light. Overcast days are also good times to shoot.

240 acres that is huge! Do you make use of the property for anything or is it just to live and play on? The Pioneer must be so much fun to ride around all that space on.

We have lived here for about 25 years and pretty much just live here. We hunt and I'm clearing off some of the lower level areas and planting wheat and oats for deer, elk and turkeys. I'm bulldozing off oak brush and will be planting this spring more areas. I also have couple acres some alfalfa planted now as well. Most of the property as you can see is rocky mountains, so we ride on dozer trails I have cut.

Colorado: What elevation are you at in these photos? How does the Pioneer perform?

Great photo's, by the way.

Hello Colorado 700-4,
I purchased my Pioneer about a month ago and have spent quite a bit of time trying to decide on types/sizes and brands of wheel and tire upgrades. I really like the look of what you've done with yours. I can see that your tires are Kanati Mongrels. What I'm dying to know is what size they are. Judging by your photos, the tire looks to be slightly taller that the original 25" so they must be at least 26". Or were you able to install 28's? What is the tire size? Are the wheels 12" or 14"? I'm also very curious about the wheel brand/model and width. Your assistance would be very much appreciated. Great photos! Thanks.
