Desert Daze by mrcool256 Desert Daze by mrcool256
I've always wanted to have a shot of a desolate road, when I first joined DA I saw a few shots of a stormy day and a road going off far into the distance and loved them so much. I was finally able to get out somewhere with no cars on the road and take some shots, I had a lot of fun with it. This was my favorite shot of that trip, and I'm now happy to have one of these shots myself! :XD:

Thanks so much for dropping by and hope everyone has a tubular weekend. :ahoy:

There is something about a desert road that represents so many possibilities.

This is a great road shot. I never get tired of looking at that mountain.

I'm almost sure I've been down this road before or passed it anyway.

I Love the palm middle of the road, the cactus, the yellowish line and of course tone and the sky, works perfectly.

I kinda did collaborated on a pic like this once, but I had help with photoshop. I like how some of the simplest everyday scenes you take can be so dramatic.

I've always loved this kind of picture and you outdid yourself here. If only New Jersey were this flat! It is in small stretches in the south part of the state, but we consider South Jersey to be another country. (It's a local thing) And somewhere in the course of the weekend I managed to listen to Tubular Bells, Tubular Bells II and Tubular Bells III by Mike Oldfield, so I guess my weekend was tubular.

Nothing says "desert" more than a Saguaro ...

I'm usually pretty good at pinpointing your locations within the area, but this time you have me stumped!

Regardless, it's a beautiful shot. :)

i may be wrong but i think its pretty hard to get a clear shot of such a long road... is this a remote place or something?? no cars around :lol:

i would love to create something like that in 3D... ive been practicing with some filders and i think im close to get that sky effect *____*
