The Road Less Taken
Bighorn Canyon, Montana
This disappearing highway in a desolate desert setting, is actually photograph of dried scum on the side of a floating dock that had been taken out of the water for the winter. I’m sure this will end up being the background for a new composite photo–as soon as I can figure out what goes with it. In the meantime, I thought the base scene itself was interesting enough to post.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time over the last few years photographing these dock floats because of the interesting impressionistic scenic landscapes they form. The Fashion Queen has teased me about going to such a scenic place as Bighorn Canyon and spending so much time photographing the likes of these plastic floats. I’m sure it’s resulted in some double takes from people passing by as well.

I like this photograph just as it is.
I also have been accused of going to a place like Death Valley and coming home with pictures of an old paint bucket.
Thanks Allan. There are lots of old paint buckets and related subjects to attract one in Death Valley and the surrounding area. Rhyolite, for example, is a gold mine for that stuff. But there everyone is looking for that kind of photo so you stand out less. I’ve probably received the most odd stares when photographing tar on asphalt.
