Monotonous landscape, but the dark and embracing tongue of the road and the blue sky create a strong contrast that enhances the shot.

Good compositional evidence.

What a terrific landscape image. Everything in it seems to play off of each other to create a truly wonderful capture. Many thanks for sharing.

Really like that picture. Reminds me of the movie 'Two Lane Blacktop".

Clear, clear, clear....feel like I'm there.

I never know what to do with the strip of asphalt. Now I know. Well done!

I'm glad I was born with this talent : I see things others don't, be it colors, lines, patterns, graphic arrangements ... beauty. Everything I see is so beautiful ! Light creates magic.


P.S. The air temperature was 50 deg C (122 F) in July and the black asphalt was so hot I feared my Michelins would melt.
