The road southbound (RN n. 7) that cut the country through the highlands from the capital Antananarivo to the south west side of the country to Tulear, descend suddenly after Ambalavao.
Big rock formations give character to the landscape and the wild scenary is cut through just by the solitary straight road...

Curiosa fotografia, una carretera y una persona hacia lo desconocido.
Un saludo desde España:

A beautiful composition: the lines of the road lead into the picturesque intersection between the yellow and the blue. Most importantly, the lone walker at the far right provides that essential sense of scale to the shot. I particularly like the perspective chosen here as well as your narrow crop.

This is an amazing shot. The composition is perfect as is the man's outfit, with the yellow bag and bright blue shirt...I don't understand why more people haven't liked it, but this is the quintessential `Road to Nowhere' picture...tfs.

Very nice composition perfectly framed.
I like this road going to nowhere and this man walking in a determined way.
Your PP is particular but I like it, it releases a feeling of great warmth.
This shot reveals a story. Very interesting and well done.
I put it in my theme Loneliness.
Have a nice week.

A very elegant composition. The lines formed by the road counterbalance that of the hilltop perfectly, so do the colours of the field and the dark background. There is a fine light giving prominence to the lonely man walking towards the distance, carrying a very eye-catching yellow bag.

Very interesting shot! A great composed image with such amazing colours, sharpness and framing. Congrats!

although i think i would like to see a little more of that dark blue sky, I do like the composition with the wide road in the foreground and the exact placement of the subject. the PP gives the effect of a painting.

artistic shot with the road to lead-in the eye on the far end of the horizon with the man to walk in the middle of the nowhere.I like the sides yellow cultivated fields with the blue on the background to be really strange,are mountains?
Have a nice week,Danos

Perfect composition to illustrate the environment you travelled through. The position of teh road and teh man is outstanding.

hey luca, the blue really helps create the depth in this scene, is is the haze ? how is the blue created, i know it happens in the valleys, something the light does..
the traveler, oh...the traveler..

J'aime beaucoup cette photo très bien composée et qui "raconte" une histoire.

Belle composition avec cet homme seul marchant seul d'une allure décidée.

this photo has fantastic atmosphere, and I certainly prefer this composition with no sky included, it has amazing atmosphere in this way...
Have a nice day, Ivana

Ciao Lucas ,
An impressive composition , no doubt . I like especially the little perspective on the valley at the top of the picture .
A great capture . Congratulations .

A majestic compo, with a strong sobriety; not only in the lines, but also in the colors, with a strange kind of mimicry between the man blue shirt and yellow equipment and the yellowish vegetation, with a blue background. And a good, classical scene of a western... in the East!

Beautiful composition for this picture. I like it !
Title is perfect with the depth sensation.

Anche questa è splendida. La strada costringe l'occhio a seguire il percorso. Il tizio che cammina la valorizza molto

Great composition from which there is a lot to learn.
