I wish I could say this is the view up the lane to my house!:GI was out looking for photoopportunities and drove past this horse farm, hit the brakes, put the car in reverse and snapped a few shots. The full size shot really looks prettty cool!

I love it! That is a shot I would be proud to have hanging on my living room wall.

This is a case where having the subject centered works extremely well. The converging lines and vanishing point really draw you into the picture.

Good work.

Thank you very much Cal! Some time luck plays a big part in photography, I have lived in this area for 50 years and never knew this place existed, and was really on my way to photograph something else.

Bob,

This is clearly a case of serendipity. As others have noted, this shot is a winner.

I'm curious to see what you'll do in our other challenges.

Aloha

Bob, you definitely hit the mark! This shot of yours reminds me of the famous poplar tree avenue composition by which fine arts students learn to attain perspective by trying to draw. Congrats once again

Thank you Selvin and Bahadir! When I look at this I am reminded of the lane going up to Tara in the movie Gone with the Wind. Thanks again for your kindand encouraging words!
