    Ed, I’m struck by how many of the shots you post are of lonely roads like this one. Very evocative. Hmmmm. Should we be psychoanalyzing this? Or is it just Winter?

      Very astute Prentis. I think psychoanalysis is exactly what’s needed!

      Truthfully, there’s no question I am drawn to these kinds of scenes. They evoke in me a feeling of anticipation, which in turn evokes hope and conjures the mystery of the unknown.

      We don’t know what lies ahead unless we venture forth. And if we don’t, it leaves so much to the imagination. Either way, it’s an experience.

      Thanks Prentis.

    I agree wholeheartedly the inward journey is the most perilous and complex journey we ever take. It is very difficult to take photos without people intruding into the “quietness” of the location. I remember Giverny. I never did get a photo of the bridge without anyone on it. And then there was Stonehenge. Aaghhh…
