      A vision of Laputa? It looks as if the mountains are floating in the sky. Now I really want to cross Nevada on Route 50.

      This is truly a classic, especially for those of us that love the open road. Thanks for sharing.

      this is a great shot, i would love to use it as a front cover for my home produced CD, I am a musician you see. Please let me know if this is possible, i am happy to give a credit on the cover, i dont expect to sell by the million, more like less than a hundred, so theres no great financial gains to be had, i just like the shot and thought it polite to ask if i can use it !
      best regards

      Gorgeous...were you ever on one of these endless highways and it dawns on you staring at the mountain...wrong way!!!! and you have to turn around and go back about 300 miles.

      Amazing. I live in the suburbs of New York City, so that kind of beauty is very, very far away from here...

      Yeah, but if you need a taxi out here, you are out of luck. Thanks for your comments.

      Amazing shot. The mountain range almost looks like a mirage, such contrast to the foreground.

      Oriolus84: Thanks you for your comments. Please answer a question for me, this picture has been on flickr for more than 6 years and by know must by on the very back page of every grouop I posted it. So, please tell me, how did you locate it?

    16. Oriolus84 45 months ago | reply

      Good question :) I was browsing through this discussion in the Views: 800 group, about your first shot to reach 800 views.

    17. kla4067 45 months ago | reply

      and by the time Hwy 50 gets to Lake Tahoe, it's anything but lonely! Great shot.
