VALLEY OF FIRE (III) !
On my way from HURRICANE/UTAH to LAS VEGAS/NEVADA, I had planned to stop by the VALLEY OF FIRE and it was totally worthwhile... not only my goal itself, but all the surroundings too! Here, the road that one can take while driving around the park!
Well folks, I'm back to law school... almost ten years ago I was taking a law course at the University but gave up for several reasons... no regrets... those years have been the most enjoyable in my life, including many, many wonderful trips and other stuff! But my job is demanding going back to my studies and I'm already less frequent around here, which will last for the next four or five years! I won't leave it for good though! Be seeing you all!!!!

You got to love that sky! Wonderful sharp contrasts. I like the texture of the land formations.

I remember this view when Craig and I went there a few years ago. I have a very similar photo ha ha. This area is really beautiful! You have done justice to it. Love the long lines and curves. Great to include that wispy cloud too. Great work,
bayno (16141) 2012-09-01 23:06
beautiful image, you've got a good eye and the result is amazing, beautiful saturated colors, excellent depth and a fascinating framing...nice one...
emka (58024) 2012-09-01 23:19
Wow, what a view, I like the strong colours- blue sky, red rocks and balck highway. And this small cloud is a cherry on the cake.
Kave a nice Sunday

HI MY FRIEND!
sIMPLE BUT VERY ATTRACTIVE SHOT, THIS ROAD THAT DRIVE YOU WHEREEVER YOUR IMAGINATION WANT. SATURATED AND LOVELY COLORS.

nice composition here. Fine perspective of road and deep blue sky. Good reportage from your journey in Nevada.
Have a nice day.

Nice to see you are able to take a break from your studies from time to time. This is a a beautifully presented road shot with superb colours and clarity. The slightly curving road disappearing up the hill gives the image great depth. Excellent rendering of the tones and textures in those rocks.

Hi Neyvan,spectacular capture whit this neverending road to the sky! Magnificent idea,the rock look like natural border for the road,great details and high saturation to create the best contrast between rocks and sky,i like it!Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
brianmcc (5536) 2012-09-02 1:49
this is a real road trip picture of the highway. the colours are fantastic, very well saturated and appealing. the landscape either side is full of interest while the blue sky contrasts very nicely. the road leading over the hill raises thoughts of what adventures lie beyond.
chawax (14870) 2012-09-02 2:22
You used very well the road to guide our look in the composition. Nice colours and beautiful lonely cloud in the blue sky.
Have a nice day,
siudzi (23837) 2012-09-02 2:25
Excellent image executed with extremely strong saturation effect. Like the way you composed and presented the view based on the road lines. Well done, tfs!
timecapturer (30226) 2012-09-02 2:26
an imaginative and quite compelling shot this! Love the effect and the enticing lines. A magical observation and presentation, well done!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.
Budapestman (82620) 2012-09-02 3:40
great atmosphere, the composition is very spectacular, superb lights and colours, the POV is effective, Tfs! Have a nice Sunday! Kellemes Vasárnapot kívánok!
francio64 (38188) 2012-09-02 4:48
ho sempre amato questo scenario e un giorno mi piacerebbe poterci passare a bordo di qualche tipica moto americana.
Incredibile la perfezione del manto stradale. Sembra come un tappeto.
Belli i colori, ottima la prospettiva.
Well done and TFS!
holmertz (26876) 2012-09-02 5:26
I would say that the colors are rather oversaturated. On the other hand this seems to be the point in this case. The rather unnatural colors give the photo an impact of a surrealistic painting. The composition is great. I love the strong black, white and yellow road and the cute little lonely cloud.
Sonata11 (28235) 2012-09-02 6:57
Awesome panoramic view of the road between rocks mountains which leading us to no where! Great lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done. Thanks for sharing. Fantastic composition and I like the framing.
All the best and have a great Sunday,
Tigerlily (2339) 2012-09-02 7:54
This is really beautiful. I like the cold and warm colour contrast. Composition is simple but very effective. The lines of the road lead us to the unknow..
kathryn_weir (1742) 2012-09-02 11:15
The richness in the colours here is wonderful. The lines of the road edges and the downward slope of the terrain on either side draw us into the journey
That little wisp of cloud is perfectly situated to give the glorious blue sky even more appeal
Thanks for sharing
bona (10132) 2012-09-02 18:16
ótimo take. Gosto do céu polarizado e o "tapete" de asfalto entre esse relevo característico. Bonitas cores e nitidez. NY foi minha primeira viagem para o exterior e até o momento foi a melhor que fiz até hoje e já planejo retornar lá em breve.
serp2000 (29144) 2012-09-02 22:38
Another masterpiece! Superb colours and clever composition. Good continuing of the Road theme. An interesting report, good illustration of your note.
Have a great new week!

Ola dear Ney
Wonderful vivid colour and impressive sharpness. The perspective is wonderful and the asphalt road contrasts beautifully against the red rocks and blue sky.
Parabéns, beautiful work
jlbrthnn (79773) 2012-09-04 9:07
Este pequeno isolado nuvem equilíbrio, bem a foto espetacular. A luz, cores e nitidez são excelentes. Bravo.
danos (73926) 2012-09-06 0:28
saturated the colours of the image,especially the blue of the sky with the road to creates depth and perspective in the image.I like the reddish rocks on the sides as the view of this section of the 'Valley of fire'.
abmdsudi (26215) 2012-09-07 7:35
This simple shot is about perspective and tremendous depth you achieve here in strong contrasting colors but very pleasing results and makes this image stands out so superbly. The composition is well thought-out with strong diagonals, ndeed a peaceful looking country road. Great shot. TFS
aliabazari (10105) 2012-09-07 19:52
The record is very nice. Excellent exposure and composition. Nicely done.
Thanks & Regards Dear Friend.
MJR (3141) 2012-09-08 3:19
Lovely sinewy lines of the man made road and its markings, providing an counterpoint to glories of the natural works surrounding it.
Simple yet strong. A great picture.
But the graininess ? Cropped form a bigger image ?
Anyway, the effect is very pleasing.
( Looks like the scene from the Kristofferson/Streisand movie 'A star is Born' where he kills himself in his red Ferrari on just such a road. )
Silvio1953 (98001) 2012-09-08 10:13
Ciao Neyvan, great perspective on neverending street, lovely blue sky with fantastic cloud, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

notrap (4676) 2012-09-08 12:44
perfect colors, perfect composition, excellent photo!
mkamionka (24469) 2012-09-08 12:59
so simple yet stunning composition. I like the motif of the road surrounded by the red colored rocks. Red goes so well with the blue sky. The white cloud is a nice final touch.
Very well spotted,
COSTANTINO (42744) 2012-09-12 7:17
another beautiful shot with amazing blue color of thesky
I love the blue color and this shot is very rich
the road leads our eyes away,the colors are so natural
and I am feeling being into this frame
Hansaphotos (5417) 2012-09-18 3:23
A very good picture where the road leads us into the barren landscapel. The dark colours of the road contrasts very well with the red/brown colours of the surrounding landscape. The lonely cloud is a nice addition. Reminds me of my own picture, "Desert view" Great work, and good luck with your studies:) TFS. Have a nice week.
Best regards, Erling
jmdias (45774) 2012-10-04 2:07
a foto é tão interessante e bonita que até parece que foi pintada. o contraste entre as cores, o asfalto tortuoso e tudo mais criou um efeito visual impactante. linda foto, muitobem feita.
