on a trip from Calgary to Vancouver and back,
across Alberta and British Columbia, with a hired car, on the Trans Canadian Highway, also called Highway1
At the beginning I stopped to take here and there a photo. But after a while, as time was passing, but not so the miles, I "shot" during the driving... not really recomendable... here some result
The Trans-Canada Highway (French: Route Transcanadienne) is a federal-provincial highway system that travels through all ten provinces of Canada. It is, along with the Trans-Siberian Highway and Australia's Highway 1, one of the world's longest national highways, with the main route spanning 8,030 km (4,990 mi). The system was approved by the Trans-Canada Highway Act of 1949, with construction commencing in 1950. The highway officially opened in 1962, and was completed in 1971. The highway system is recognizable by its distinctive white-on-green maple leaf route markers.

Hello Janos ,
What a great idea ! That provides a superb feeling of dicovery . From the dark tunnel to the luminous landscape , what a contrast ! The cars are well placed in the composition , and the little tilt works well here . May be the black area could have been a little less important . But i'm not sure .

You used the tunnel and arch as frame, this is very well found.
We get a very nice panoramic view in background, together the contrast.
Sharpness and colors be superb.
You create a very nice depth andperspective picture.
Lovely presentation, excellent captured. TFS.
