In The Dark Night...
The image is a re-processing from my archive. The image is inspired by the experience I had one night when traveling/driving in Yosemite National Park back in April. Due to an unexpected traffic accident, we were forced to detour 160km from Yosemite NP South Entrance to go back to our hotel (which's just 3km away on the other side of the Entrance) after one-day wander in the National Park.
No doubt I felt frustrated when driving such narrow and winding roads in the dark. Nothing else I saw but the incoming road reflectors. With our car moving forward, the road stubs become light dots, from single ones somehow gradually to a beam... It's not only an interesting visual impact to the eyes, but also uncomfortableness to the mind. I had to concentrate myself in holding the steering wheel tight in addition to thinking something positive in order not to lose myself in such unreal circumstances. That's where the yellow light in the middle came from! The light of positive energy, the light of Hope! Or maybe it's just me unhappy for such an unbelievable detour...
A friend of mine actually told me it's really a spooky photo. I guess it's one of the "dark" images I seldom produce! :)
