I originally took this photo thinking that I'll modify it in Lightroom. I really want to make it like those wallpaper-quality photos of roads you usually see - soft focus, heavily saturated. But as always, I ended up opening in Lightroom, then exporting straightaway to Flickr. So I'm basically using Lightroom as a very expensive upload tool. But still, a nice road. The road leads your eye towards the canopy at the top.

 

Edit: I took this photo by throwing the camera as high up as I could. Then suddenly, a golden eagle soared down and grasped the camera and pressed the shutter button with its beak. Then it dropped the camera as an open-air truck loaded with trampolines was passing by, the camera bounced off and landed back into my hands.
