But I'll tell ya... country roads ain't what they used to be. The speed limit on this particular stretch of blacktop is 60 miles per hour. So here I am, just over a blind hill, in the middle of the road, playing Frogger, while trying to get a shot of this beautiful sunset as cars whizzed by at close to 80 (it is Texas, after all).

I thought for sure I was going to end up as road-kill more than once as I jumped out of the way of swerving, honking, and bird-flipping, country wanna-be's who just moved out of the city and into the country with their fast-lane attitudes.

Boy-howdy... I'll tell ya... now-a-days it sure ain't easy for a hard-working photographer to stand in the middle of a dark and busy road at dusk to get a good shot. Sheesh... People drive too dang fast...
