I’ve got my photos of Moab up and captioned. I took a decent number of photos of riding, and then went out to the Slickrock practice loop on Sunday at sunset and took a buttload of scenery shots. I threw out more than half of those, but there are still a whole bunch of shots too good to part with.
I’m also working on a video. I wasn’t able to do much filming of the top riders (it’s hard enough keeping up with them without trying to take pictures and video too). So, the movie will not be unicycle porn; it will be slower-paced, trying to capture some of the Western wildness of the place, as well as some of the feeling of being on the trail with all these different people. It’ll take me a while to edit it still.
Next time, please try and search for threads that are already created that you could add to instead of creating a new one. There are already 3 or 4 MOAB 2006 picture ones…and it’d be so nice if everyone could post on one thread vs. everyone starting a new one everytime they have MOAB pictures cause then we’d have like 20 threads just on MOAB pictures. Thanks in advance and sorry to outlash on you in particular!
Hey Tom, thanks for posting this thread. I had been avoiding the various moab photo threads due to time constraints and all the white noise, but when I saw one under your name I went right in since I know you take good photos.
PS: Thanks for taking the time to caption, too. It definitely adds value.
Too bad we don’t have one single thread for Moab photos - let’s make sure to do that next time. I had a great time again - my 4th Moab Muni Fest. I took a few photos and one little video - check 'em out here: http://nhoover.smugmug.com/gallery/1325037
I’m pleased to announce that my Moab movie is now ready!
It’s titled “Moab MUniFest 2006, (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly)”, and like the movie which served as inspiration, it’s slow-paced and moody. It’s much more about the landscape and the event than it is about unicycle riding, per se; anyone who was there will appreciate the wide range of riders shown, but there’s not a lot of high-end riding.
Right now there are two versions, both QuickTime h.264; the high-quality version is 119MB, the low-quality is 16MB. Watch the high-quality if you can, it’s a lot better. I may put up an MPEG 4 version if I can get decent quality out of the size I want.

I tried to play the low q version (both directly and after
downloading) but I have only audio. It seems to try and download
something (a codec?), then complains that it isn’t available from the
