As much as I like the speed and efficiency of flying from place to place, there is still a part of me that is drawn to the good old fashion road trip. I always seem to be quoting this or that, something that seems to explain my thoughts in a deep sense, and this opportunity is no exception, with one from William Least Heat Moon.
The open road is a beckoning, a strangeness, a place where a man can lose himself.
Generally it’s not the best practice to shoot photos from a moving vehicle, but it’s not always feasible or advisable to stop and try and set up a shot in all road conditions. This hopefully show’s that sometimes, if you’re luck (or as I have said before, “confluence of preparedness and opportunity”) happens to be hanging around, you get a really cool shot. A one shot HDR, taken in the passing lane, heading south on 57, southern Illinois. A bit ominous looking.
