Using a telelens sometimes compresses a scene in such a way that the story you are telling gets a little bit warped.

Cheers,

It's a little unsettling to see terrain like this and signs warning to watch for falling rock. The landscape is stark and one could wonder what lies ahead. Interesting capture. Of course you knew where you were going.

I love this shot, Remco - the message about the effect of gravity on rocks is very clear, and your placement of the road in the composition tells me that you might want to slow down a bit before descending!

Rocky road? Or Wet road? Can't tell.

Thanks Mike! It stil was an unfamiliar road and I alway's keep an eye out for loose rocks on the road when I see a warning sign like this. In Finland I became extra careful after a warning for wandering reindeer on the road when shortly after that warning I saw some really extensive skid marks on that road. I reduced my speed and because of that I was able to brake just in time when a reindeer came out of the woods on to the road.

Yes, there is ambiguity there. Thanks Angky!
