Sunday Stills: The Open Road

This was an experiment Saturday on a nearby road to see if I could get more road in the shot. I kind of like all the converging lines and the texture of the macadam in the foreground.

This panoramic photo is one that I took on a business trip to visit west Texas clients a couple years ago. I'd actually stopped to photograph the large wind farm running along the left mesa as my subject. But perhaps the neatest thing about the photo is that--just like the song--the road goes on forever.

I'm sure Ed can attest to this, since he was driving through it earlier this week! Visit him and the rest of the gang at Sunday Stills.
