Heading Out for Fun

Every one of us has the capacity to make our dreams come true. We move
from, "I wish." to "I am." by taking a step to manifest our deepest
desire. Ask yourself, "If I believed my dream was not impossible, what
might I do next?" Then take that step.

bluechameleon from Vancouver, Canada

I love this Jack! the colours and slight gold hue make this a bit unreal, in a real world. The fog off in the distance and the curve in the road tell such a story. Love the quote and this image.

don from Spokane, United States

What photographer would like that marvelous curve in this shot. The steam from the car adds to the feeling of being underway. The enhancing mist completes this fine image.

zOOm from Paris, France

A agree Don, as the setting may look quite classical at first glance, there's someting almost fairy in it... can't explain why...

Beautiful shot Jack....but whoa, look at the exhaust on that car!!! I thought you guys out west were much "greener" than the cars out here!!! Where's the emissions control police????

14 Mar 2009 4:38pm

@Susan: First thing on a cold, humid morning, all cars do this.

Nacho from Salem, OR, United States

Jack, what a great image. I love the feeling of going down one of these country roads savoring the moment, the opportunity we are given to witness that beauty. Thank you for giving me that moment again. One of these days I'll have to go down to Corvallis and go for a shoot with you. : )

15 Mar 2009 3:06am

@Nacho: I would love that, Nacho. Thanks for your kind words.

Observing from North West, United Kingdom

This shot reminded me of John Denver - Country Roads. It is a superb shot of the countryside.

15 Mar 2009 3:08am

Barbara from Florida, United States

For me there is a sense of deja vu with this scene. It is so familiar, I know I must have experienced before. It is a good feeling from the view.
That exhaust from the tailpipe adds just the right touch to make it real.
Remarkable capture.

15 Mar 2009 3:08am

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

more great composition: love how the road leads the viewer right into the image
