What a way to wake up! Sunrise can't hide in all this vast openness, and you are treated to wonderful light with long shadows. Very nice photo, Marilyn.

Also, I don't know if it was intentional, but there's an interesting composition of elements between the tabletop, the ashtray, and the gas station roof. It's interesting just zoomed in on these three.

Very nice and peaceful as well :)

Cheers Marilyn!

Thank you, Ryan and Majlend.

No careful attention to details here, Ryan! It was time to go, but I could not leave these beautiful colors, lines, and textures unphotographed. I took two rather hasty shots, trying to get the best composition I could without rearranging and without even exploring a variety of angles. I'm glad you think it works.

Yes, I also think it works.

Wonderful pic of art! Congrtulations! cheers

Marilyn Whiteley on April 4, 2008

Many thanks, Eva and artwall. When there was so much natural beauty around, it may have seemed strange that I photographed this. I'm glad that you understand! Greetings, Marilyn

A very lovely place.

Marilyn Whiteley on April 5, 2008

Yes, Luis, very lovely. Unfortunately we kept so busy taking pictures and editing pictures that we didn't take time to go and simply sit and enjoy the beauty!
