1M on a snowy day in a (desolate) harbor site

Exceptional Spring day: cold and snowy. The right time for some pictures at a (desolate) harbor site.

First five pictures courtesy of Belgian forum fellow Lorenzo (see his sig in his pictures). Remaining (low quality) pictures just shot with my Blackberry 9900.

EDIT: Direct link to 35 additional pictures by forum fellow Momenol further down this thread:

Great pictures Artemis, thanks for posting. The more that I see your BBS wheels the more I like them, great color indeed for a VO.

Beautiful car and pics! Would look awesome if you Photoshopped the foot prints in the snow out from the pictures of it in the warehouse.

Looking great and strangely familiar ;-)

Do let us know what tire setup you ended up going home with!

That will be fixed later
Yesterday I went with Artemis to the harbor in Antwerp and shot some pictures also. I will upload them later today.
Stay tuned.

Looking forward to the results.

My camera was very lousy, unlike those of forum fellows Momenol and Lorenzo (who hawk-eyed for the right settings and angles, with the right equipment).

Small story behind this: taken by surprise by the adverse weather conditions overnight (temperature drop and snow, which is very rare for this time of the year over here), but kept my earlier promise to pull the 1M out of its crib for some pictures, even at the supposedly 'wrong' time and 'wrong' place(s). What was initially scheduled as a common Spring photoshoot - with a shiny, dirt-free 1M popping the Valencia Orange straight in the face - turned out to be an unexpected winter encounter in a gloomy/eerie area. And the VO 1M blended rather well into the rugged scenery (the white 'veil' on the car is dried salt to clean snowy roads). As temperatures are currently rising again, the one-night/day snow is probably gone by today or tomorrow. So, from hindsight, it was the 'right' time and 'right' place(s).
