I'll start, entitled "Road to nowhere".
Taken with G1 plus kitlens. Picasa was my friend.
um ... where's the picture, Herman ? (or is that why it's called "Road to Nowhere" ?)
LOL. thanks, I forgot to include my road. Seams to be a real road TO NOWHERE.
Here we go.
funnily enough I took a photograph of a piece of road today, so I was pleased to see this Show started ...

Taken by my wife through windscreen with TZ15 while moving. Not sure how far they were headed but was 700km from Perth.
Thanks guys for your contribution, both images are great.
Thanks Bill. Let's have a drink together at a nearby bar, cheers!
well it's open
we were sat at another bar "watching the world go by"
Here's two oldies but works...
Like that second one Pete. Love the line of the clouds and that battered old road. The cactus bring back good memories of a trip to Saguaro NP a few years back.
A not very good photograph taken on a dull, overcast morning (this morning) through the top deck front window of a moving bus on the main road from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth travelling north along what is known locally as "Slapton Line" or indeed just "The Line". The road is built on the top of the shingle ridge that separates the sea (English Channel) on the right from the fresh water of Slapton Ley on the left.
This area was used in the months running up to the invasion of Europe in 1944 for seaborn landing practice by American troops.
The dog is "Finn" and the barely visible gentleman on the bike is "Alan" from the village of Torcross at the south end of the line.

Here's a view taken last summer from higher ground inland showing the southern end of the line and the village of Torcross

Milton Road Rye, NY, USA (My most recent road shot taken with Streetshooter's NEX5)
I went that way walking between Chillington and Frogmore this morning, avoiding the main road, then decided to get the bus home but a friend drove by and gave me a lift. I should have gone up there a couple of weeks ago, I've not seen so many snowdrops along a hedge as there are between Loo Cross and Frogmore.
