Circular Tire Tracks on Highway 9

Photo by Chuck Rogers.


These tire tracks were found on California Highway 9 in the Santa Cruz mountains. This is a windy two-lane highway and not a very safe place for goofing around with vehicles, but it made a great design. It was near dusk and I did not have a tripod along, so this was cleaned up some with Paint Shop Pro.
