Landscape Photography – The Road is Long…

A little nostalgia today. Does anyone out there remember when they first heard Neil Diamond’s hit “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” back in the late 60’s? Driving down this long road in central Texas brought back that song and a host of old memories.

“The road is long with
many a winding turn
That lead us to who knows where,
who knows where
But I’m strong,
strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”

The Road Is Long

  2. Really Like the image, Open roads & blue skys always lead to something new. Unfortunately the 60′ and a big part of the 70’s are a bit of a blur….

    • Ray,

      You made my day with your comment. Yes, those were some wild & crazy days. I love when I mention Alice Cooper and my kids as who “she” was. Or David Bowie and they ask if he was the one at the Alamo.


  3. Wowie zowie!

    (I think I say that about a lot of your photos, even if I don’t type it in.)

    • Thanks Mark!

      As I told Michael, I cheat a little by lowering the luminance of the blue and adding more vibrance. Mother nature does most of the heavy lifting and all I do is tweak it a bit. More tweaking in Thursday’s post.


    • Michael,

      I cheat! In Lightroom all you need to do is lower the luminance value of the blue slightly and then increase the vibrance. It really makes the blue sky pop! It also helps to be in central Texas on a hot, dry afternoon. 🙂
