Videos of Off-Roading over the Years

January 18, 2013 2 comments

Hey Guys,

Its already a bit late by nevertheless its never too to share greetings ‘Wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous new year’. I’ve been guilty of being lazy, infact quite lazy with updating this blog so here I am starting this year with sharing some videos of off-roading.

This first video is my decent from Rohtang Pass. This was taken in Sept’12 on my drive from Kaza to Manali. As can be seen from the video, its nothing short of being termed as off-road gauging from the terrain, the slush, etc.

I started Off-Roading way back in December 2008. Infact I shared this in my 1st blog post

Harjeev’s M&M MM550 XD 4×4- The making of an Off-Roader

 

IMG_7938Since that time I must have taken hundreds infact thousands of pictures through the years. Most of these pictures are on my hard drive, just sitting there. So I thought, what would it be like to share these with everyone. However the problem was that no one in the world has neither the time nor the patience to sit and see 6500 pictures, atleast I don’t. So getting the clue from time-lapse branch of photography, I started to experiment on converting these images into a short video.

Some details of the enclosed video

  • 6258 Total number of pictures
  • Used Lightroom to merge the images together
  • Frame Rate per Sec(FPS) 10
  • Length of the video 10:26Mins (6258 Images @ 10fps= 626sec or 10 mins & 25.8 sec
  • Music from Youtube Voyage- Sorena2009- Instrumental
  • The video in HD of 720p. So please change the quality from the menu in Youtube

The resultant video looks a bit fast however this is my first experiment with combining images together. Will be uploading more videos in future with lower frame rate and shorter length of 2-3mins each.

Continuing with the previous post here are the pictures of the 1st January 2010.

Same as always the meetup place was Signature Towers NH8.  The meetup time was noon but by the time we guys left Signature Towers it was 15mins to 1PM. From here on I’ll let the pics do the talking

Following are the pics of Bobbie in is, well it used to be referred as the Black Mamba but after painting it yellow, I am not sure what to rename it…

Seen in the following pics Bobbie is eager to check the latest addition to his jeep, the 33” Yokohama MT’s followed by me in my CJ3B in 31” Maxxis Mudzillas being looked upon by eager villagers

Slush Fest: NIOC OTR at DND 17th Nov 2010 – Part I

November 26, 2010 Leave a comment

As the 17th of November 2010 was a holiday due to Id, so some of us from the NIOC gang thought lets get together and go for some off-roading. Having heard lots about the river bank around the DND Expressway (Delhi-Noida-Delhi Expressway) but never been at this track, this place was chosen for the the days excursion. 

Being a holiday we guys took it easy and started the OTR around 11am ish.
