The Endless Road

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 15 May 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the Highway 50 that so many find boring. Not me.

These vast vistas call to my heart. This bare, cracked, unforgiving, savage landscape; holding the promise of days yet unseen, and of gardens, not yet sown.

Quand j'imagine les Etats-Unis, c'est ce genre d'image que j'ai en tête.
J'aime beaucoup cette composition avec cette impression de route qui n'en finit pas.
La lumière est vraiment belle également. Beau cliché.

@Eric Laforgue: Merci pour les mots gentils, Eric. La chaleur ici peut en été être oppressante. Le reste de l'année c'est bel ici - et les étoiles(stars) volera la nuit votre coeur!

And we go on and on :)

Just been reading about Highway 50, man what a long long road!

@Curly: This is an amazing place Curly - and what you see here is about 5 km of over 500 km that constitutes 'the loneliest road' segment.

About as straight and flat as you can get, were you tempted to floor it?

great the expanse...this road seems like an only hope in the otherwise barren environment.

This is the kind of landscape I like when driving in US.
Beautiful framed. The space is laaaaarge!

Love the low wide angle view that makes this highway appear so ominous and reaching out to infinity. Bet you can fly low on this road. Great shot and perspective Stephen.
