I took this photograph tonight at an interstate highway exit along I-25 in northern Colorado (RAW file processed in Lightroom). I first tried to compose the photograph without the highway and car to convey the scene’s beauty and implied serenity. But to leave them out would fail to convey my actual experience. Standing outside my own vehicle and enjoying the visual beauty I also experienced the unpleasant noise and movement of passing cars. It was beautiful but not serene. That seems to be the way many landscapes are enjoyed in our modern world, a mix of visual beauty and annoying interruptions. That said, I’m always glad to witness nature’s magnificent show.
