What's over the next hill? / by Michael Evans

One thing that is difficult about traveling in interesting places is trying to find when to stop. It seems there is always another hill or turn that might be hiding something one doesn’t want to miss. The road in this photo is in a remote part of Iceland, I shot this just as the temperature dropped and the water on the road started freezing. It was good luck to have a sturdy 4x4 with studded tires for the rest of the adventure.

Icelandic Road Freezing, 2007  This image is a good example of using a vanishing point to lead the viewer’s eye directly into the center of the composition.  It also has a bit of mystery as one wonders what is over the hill in the distance.
