    Great picture. I have wondered, given all the concerns about tripods and stability and shake, how stable can you be on a platform supported by air, rubber, and springs?

    Unless you jump up and down, why shouldn't a car be stable?

    As long as one does not move -- and waits for things to settle down when one does. A true photo rig would have remotely controlled hydralic jacks that lower and support the vehical.

    For stability the car frame can be propped up by proper lengths of wood. It helps, but does not eliminate all vibration.

    You might check out Michael Strickland's website http://www.michaelstricklandimages.com for inspiration regarding midwest/prairie landscapes. Many of the images on his site are from California, but he recently moved back to his native Kansas and has been shooting there. Check out the "News" section.
