Path Between the Fields
I normally wouldn't choose to compose like this, with the road running right in the middle of the picture, but the red house down the road beneath those puffy clouds just seemed to demand it.
Rays and Streaks
Sunlight slicing through storm clouds over US 380 near Carrizozo, New Mexico.
Old Route 66
New Mexico Highway 6, which was US Route 66 from 1926 to 1937, west of Los Lunas.
Road to Nowhere
I was so surprised that this tiny little dirt track, which appeared to vanish well before the horizon, was marked by a sign, as though it were a recognizable highway.
The road south of The Narrows in El Malpais.
Sunrise in Adams County, Illinois
Late Autumn Fields
Another sign at the National Bison Range that seems totally unnecessary.

Kohler-Andrae State Park 9
Further west of Vík, closer to Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Highway 1 passes through the Eldhraun, a massive lava field up to 40 feet thick. It was created during one of the most devastating volcanic eruptions in recorded human history, the 1783-84 eruption of Laki. In addition to spewing out hundreds of square miles of lava, it killed twenty percent of Iceland's population and blotted out summer weather for most of Europe. Today the area is a surreal plain of jagged rocks, thick moss and virtually no humans.
