Taken through the windshield, while driving on a very winding road, trying not to run her over.

I was heading home after a fun, but long, day driving through the mountains. Coming around a curve, I saw her and started to curse at the much slower pace I was forced to drive. I could not pass as it was one narrow lane. As we neared the next curve, and this scene came into view, I suddenly realized that this was the shot! I also suddenly remembered that I had my camera on the seat next to me.

I grabbed it, pointed it out the window, and just did a short burst with whatever settings were thre. Then she disappeared around the curve. As I approached the curve I could see there was a pullout just ahead, and she road into it, letting me pass.

Where I cursed her before for being in front of me, I now again cursed that she'd pulled over.

I want to call Deb out on this one. Those signs really pop.

This image doesn't do anything for me... I feel this shot has so much potential and I can barely see beautiful scenery that looks lost in the overblown out whites..:-))
