There are better ways to spend your time

As I sit here typing this I know I’m delaying the inevitable, soul destroying truth. I know that as soon as I publish this I need to hop in my car, sit in Monday morning traffic and head to my job. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. But after seeing this photo essay I know you’ll agree with me that there are better ways to spend your time.

Like most friends I make these days, I met Alex Strohl on instagram. And here comes probably the important compliment you can pay anyone these days: he has a beautiful feed. What stood out for me (obviously) is a little adventure he and La Marzocco took. I’ll let Alex give us a quick insight and then I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The whole idea was a bit silly at first when we were planning it. But as the first thick, heavy, shots came out of the Mini and the first rays of sun illuminated the valley we knew we were onto something rather good. The inspiring part is that it wasn’t that hard to put pull of. The big thing was finding the generator to run the machine on which we borrowed from a motorcycle store in town. The rest was smooth sailing, besides maybe driving the old Land Rover Series IIa up the mountain pass, it took a little while and we thought we were going to miss first light. The evening before we loaded up the car with the gear in the car, had a short night of sleep and by 4am we were leaving the house headed to the mountains!
