I consider this the best photo of the decade because I am thinking about retiring so I can concentrate more on my photography. This image instills peace and tranquility which I have always associated with reirement years. Also the road symbolizes to me, a new direction for the next phase of my life. Where it will lead is uncertain yet this road is very inviting becasue I see beauity and a simpler life ahead.
