In the Distance

 

On the road to Monument Valley, AZ. Coming from the small island of Guernsey, something we found overwhelming in America was the vastness of the landscape. The dead straight roads, open deserts and enormous skies were so refreshing we couldn't really get enough of them. I think we spent more time standing in the middle of the road taking pictures than actually driving...

 

The only editing was bringing up the blues in the sky a little. I really hate it when people completely overdo the colours in post, I really think it can detract from the image. Apologies, thought this might be a good place for a miniature rant!

 

One of my contacts, tommo gnsy, kindly asked whether he could use the image for editing. I think he did a great job, check out the edited photo here - www.flickr.com/photos/paulthomson/3605594374/
