    Interesting shot and framing - I'd have liked to be there and try shooting from that angle.

    Where was this on the road ?

    A really interesting shot, I find myself looking and looking at all of the unique layers and depth in the photo. The longer I look the more I see. Nice framing job, and the elements in the photo seem to match front to back with the lines and flow of the lines. I like this a lot. I personally probably would have cropped a smidge off the top to make more of a panorama look and have that wonderful framing arch of the tree be in the upper part of the image, but now I am really nitpicking. Once again, just personal preference.

    Can you get to this spot often? I bet other light situations would yield some super results too.
