This and the previous one are both excellent. This one in particular; I like the mistiness in the other one but what I like about this one is the tight, panoramic ratio crop that really pulls the eye into the road. I know that they're from the other side of the country but these shots remind me of when I was in Oregon way, way back in '99. That was the trip that really kick started a serious interest in photography since I had an old Kodak 35mm at the time and stopped to take some shots of some roads very much like these... and they turned out to be fuzzy rubbish. (Therein lies the difference between understanding what a focal length is and having three focus icons; a single person, two people and a mountain range.) The thing is that no matter how often you return to a place you have one and only one chance to capture it as it was at that time. The opportunity of the shots from my trip are lost forever (short of building a time machine), but you have this one from that moment, an image that can never be replicated.
