Autumn Backroads

I managed to get out and drive the backroads of Indiana to see a bit of the fall colors today. Pulled over to shoot a particular tree and turned to see this great vintage truck pass me by. Quickly snapped it instead and was quite happy with the results. Happenstance often provides the happiest of outcomes. :-)
nice old truck.................were you parked in the middle of the road?

@chard - How do you know they don't just take their half in the middle? :-)

You are finally getting to see some of the fall colors! The truck helps focus on the yellows.

Not only a pretty scene, but the vintage car is appropriately colored for the occasion! And it seems like a timeless country road. Just know you were grinning when you happened on the moment!

I love it when that happens. Makes it feel like fate playing a hand. Lovely shot and cool truck.

great shot. altough i think i would have been tempted to crop the right and the top out (removing the tree), so its just the road and truck.

Feel the tree takes away from the image a bit, although maybe it does frame it nicely. hmmm???

anyway - nice shot

@hednod - Thanks for the suggestion, Murray. I did think about isolating the truck, but fell in love with the tree, too. I may try that cropping, but that's a picture for another day. :-)
