This desert road picture shows a almost typical and classic highway photo, the road seems to be endless, bordered by desert and the dramatic sky is filled with heavy afternoon storm clouds.
In the US state New Mexico it often seems that the sky is closer to the horizon, especially when out on a road in the middle of nowhere in the flat and endless desert. Afternoon is a great time to photograph road photos because often heavy thunderstorms are forming and the clouds giving a great dramatic detail to the photo.
I photographed this image with a Contax camera, in the format 6x4.5cm on Fuji Velvia film.
