It reminds some roads in the Vercors mountains. I really like these autumn tones, and the mist.

I bet this road would make for a much more interesting drive than the big new highway. I wouldn't want to fall off the edge of it, though.

Good shot. I think we are going to see very interesting things in this route.

I like the framing that you showed the river as well. Very well composed.
