    Very surreal shot, and I dig it very much. It reminds me a bit of a Storm Thorgerson photo, from his days shooting album covers for Pink Floyd.

    I recognized your Route 66 pictures. We drove that whole thing in 1 968 enroute to California in an ancient VW bus. What a wonderful trip for two newly married. "California or Bust" written on the front. Next time you're thinking of a trip, do Highway 49 in California. It's the route the goldseekers took to find their fortune in the area around Coloma, CA. Bring a trout rod, too. It's magnificent, laced with foothills of gold and green, steeped in history, ghost towns, restored mining towns. Wonderful. I lived there for a year.

    That is the trippiest thing I've seen in a while! The clouds were only on the horizon making it look like and odd painting on some awning or shade. Great job!
