I chose this quote after much deliberation. I was SO close to using "Rand McNally Road Atlas" for a few laughs. I hadn't planned on entering this challenge, but I casually shot and casually was editing my shots and really loved this picture. I found a quote to go with it.

I'm not usually a fan of telephone poles and wires in a shot, but this works well. I like the effect in the darkness of this photograph. Good luck!

I'll never get bored of this type of shot, even the telegraph poles add to it for me.

nice golden quality to the road. Middle Earth would've been so much better off with telephone poles! :)
