Stop and Go

A drive by shot when we were approaching Liberty Lake. The changeable weather with a wane sun, low lying clouds and generally a strange sky caught my eye and I had to get a shot of the atmosphere. Too bad it didn't do a better job of capturing what I saw! :-)

I like that this captures the surrounding hills!

The sky has some beautiful lightning.. Is that water or black ice on the roads?

cool! but what i like even better than the really strange sky is the glow of the strips of tar on the tarmac! this is really something you don't see every day!

This silver light is stunning, I can understand it was difficult to capture it. But it was worth trying it, the feeling of uncertain location and its inumerous ways makes it interesting.

I like the reflections off the roadway as well -- visually interesting.

A great drive by frame, and the mountains looming out of the low cloud is a treat. I think it captures the scene wonderfully well, Don.

Nice drive-by photo. These are hard images when the sun is in front of you but you did a good job.

I like how the leaning lightpoles form brackets around the image, as well as the central commercial building echoing the distant mountains.

Yep, there's all manner of cloudy oddness going on. Well seen!

Captured or not, I know what you were seeing . . there is an added awareness brought about by snow as it shifts our perceptions of the everyday.

So bright S light in the street! Cold enough so the water becomes ice?!

This scene seems to want HDR. Now, if you could rig a tripod in the car. The fog and the hills are cool.

Good morning Don
I like the atmosphere of the overall view. The mountains in the background in a light mist is a very nice background image. The sky, with the fading sun and the bright stripes on the asphalt of the road enliven the overall view. It is an attractive image and I like it very well. 5 stars ***** Thank you for your nice comment. We had a very nice day. Have a nice time and all the best including your family and friends.
Dear greetings Christel and Detlev (and Ranger)

This is a wonderful shot, but does look cold....I am about ready for the cold to let up for more than a few hours.
