My previous photo made some of TE members curious to know what was at the other side of the Windows, here is my answer, the mountains began to have colors, not only red but due to the presence of various minerals, grey, green, yellow
Here is another photo, also taken from inside the car, through the windshield
The history of 911
9-1-1 is a telephone number used by countries around the world as a central emergency number.
It's one of the best known phone numbers, in part because we have seen it’s being used in hundreds of Hollywood movies, when someone called the police or emergency.
Today may seem trivial the fact of using a single number for all emergencies from various cities / countries but operating it was not easy and take time
The first emergency number used as a point of contact for any emergency was used in England in 1937. By the number 999 could communicate with firefighters, police and emergency medical services from anywhere in the country
The use of 911 born in the U.S. in 1968
The first 911 call was made on February 16, 1968 in Haleyville, Alabama
Why 9-1-1 was chosen?
It is not known exactly why that number was chosen
Some reports indicate that a computer was used to select it, others simply because it was easy to dial the number on the old phones and also that the number 911 had not been previously used as any postcode / area / telephone or otherwise
There were already precedents emergency phone numbers with 3, that it’s probably the most important factor

Una región de Argentina muy linda! Me gustaria mucho conocerla! Todas las fotos que yo he visto que son sacadas en ella son maravillosas y esta no és diferente!
Me gustam sobretodo los colores naturales y obtenidos, el punto de vista elegido y la composición!
Gracias por compartir!

nice the view of the highway with the number of 911 to be the eye catcher of the scene,taken perfect in the frame.
I like the creative perspective,the clarity and the sharpness of the scene,with the informative note to completes perfect the whole scenery.Well done.

Hola Miss Maria,
Hmmm, I thought the other side of Windows was a Mac?? :) O.K., poor attempt at computer humor!? Even with the bright blue sky in comparison, that emergency call sign jumps right off the background in contrast! The rich, rustic reds are now enhanced by the varying shades of yellow and grey in this scene.
Interesting facts about "911," I had never taken the time to research anything before, so this was a nice little nugget of information to pick up. Unfortunately here in America "911" has another deep impact of reference, and sadly two meanings associated with distress.
Must be a curvy road, the last picture drove us to the right, this one taking us to the left...what's next, are we going up? :) Love the raw textures and strong color...now keep both hands on the wheel young lady, no more driving and photographing!! Have a wonderful week ahead mi amiga en el Sur.
Be good. My best wishes,
Le Grande pálido American, (That's probably wrong, isn't it? jaja)

Belle perspective avec une intéressante profondeur d'image donnée par la vue de la route et de la courbe, le regard est guidé vers les montagnes, de superbes teintes avec ce contraste avec le bleu du panneau et du ciel.

The landscape is very interesting there, different shades of dark color, but no trees. Maybe the minerals are not suitable for plants. Anyway, it's unique and beautiful in other way.

another lovely picture from Salta. I like the dark red colors of the rocks - they are so unusual. They contrast very nicely with the clear blue sky.
The composition is very good and uses road as a image splitting element. Great clarity and sharpness and well balanced light.
Thanks for sharing

Another fantastic corner in the red/brown desert, well taken POV, Maria.
Fine clarity, good details and the 911 sign in contrast - just a whole 1km to go, to call for help...
holmertz (41083) 2014-03-10 10:12
This is a very attractive composition with beautiful tones of rusty red and dark grey. The road, with its yellow lines and white arrow, makes a gentle curve and the blue 911 sign is a bright eye-catcher. It's a fascinating scenery and the colours and sharpness are very impressive, especially considering the circumstances. Your windshield was very clean!

Ici je vois un meilleur aperçu de l'environnement d'oxyde ferreux Fe2O3 :) rouge
En France, pour appeler la Police c'est le 17, 18 pour les pompiers et 112 lorsqu'on appelle d'un mobile pour toute l'Europe
ChrisJ (98056) 2014-03-11 4:47
Wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the richly saturated blue sky and the equally resplendent red rocks and soil. The road adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs!

Learn something new everyday about the world through photograph, I didn't know that other countries have adopted this emergency number. Nicely presented with good pov and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Una imagen sensacional y sobre todo teniendo en cuenta, que esta hecha atraves del parabrisas, impresionante la belleza de estas montañas, que ademas de los tonos rojizos que vemos mas en primer plano, ofrecen una amplia variedad de colores, en sus escarpadas laderas, esplendido azul del cielo, que es un hermoso complemento.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y una buena nitidez.
Disfruta de un buen dia.

Appealing highway view of the multiple colored mountains, and the emergency phone sign ahead is historical to me, because we no longer place them along our highways due to the vast availability of cell phones.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: Besides photography and Youtube we also share Egyptology. I have a bachelors degree in history and Egyptian history is one of my favorites. Though I did not try to learn hieroglyphics like you have; congratulations...

I love road pictures, especially when they're surrounded by impressive mountains like here in your pic. Great rusty color conrasting with the blue sky, wonderful sight.
Thanks and best wishes!

Hola Maria querida,
I appreciate very much your curiosity, readiness and skill in photographing the opposite view of the ventana. The scenery is smoother but still desolate and wild and the signs of modern life are eye-catching and look a little weird. I like very much the depth and the textures as well as how the road and the yellow lines lead to the shady triangle. The colours have a delicious richness. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Un joli décor qui suit la photo précédente, la route en descende et les courbes, la montagnes a de merveilleuses couleurs en contraste avec le bleu du ciel, une route agréable aux paysage qui mérite d'être connu, bonne note
Angshu (55669) 2014-03-17 22:54
Indeed the 911 sign is an eye catcher. The road twists and turns like a serpent along the mountains creating a good lead-in for our eyes to get into the depth of the picture. Fine contrast with the blue sky!
mkamionka (30636) 2014-03-19 9:07
indeed we have 999 in Poland and recently 112 is famous too. But of course I remember 911 from the USA.
Fantastic colors and shapes of the rocks. I could walk among them forever. Nice composition again with the arrow on the road, I think I would prefer it without the phone sign but it does add some color and interest here.
This is a sight promising an adventure, I would say.
Very well done,

otra hermosa vista de estas montañas llenas de colores. la ruta y sus curvas son un precioso elemento. hermoso trabajo. esta és una de las regiones de argentina que me gustaria de conocer aun.
acá usamos el 190 para llamar la policia y hay otros.

des couleurs spectaculaires..un decors irréel

First, an excellent note about 911 number. Your shot refresh my memory from this road to Cafayate many years ago.
Great panoramic shot with a road leading to the mountains. Good contrast between gray/red mountains and blue sky.
Well done, with perfect quality.

Informative illustration Maria, this is a mineral and arid landscape with no trees and vegetation, funny roadsign indicating maybe a human settlement, excellent resolution, a wild area
