Follow the Patchwork Road

This road, leading to St Léry, is minimistically excellent. This copse consists of more than 200 trees...and If I hadn't had another car hooting behind me I would have been more precise. I expected this view to be sparse yet having its own fascination. I wasn't disappointed, especially with the articistic road repairs.

Enhanced greatly by being viewed on black. Thank you, Jasper
No fences and no lines on the road - unusual in our part of the world! Makes a simple and nice picture!

Neat composition with the two trees in front - the road itself looks like something from of a Belgian spring Classic (cycling).

This looks so lonely - would never have guessed you had an impatient driver behind you.

Great composition, VML the curves and patched road. Needs a few potholes:):). There needs to be a sign that reads "Don't honk, Artiste on Board"

I think this would make a good b/w image as the shapes are so strong.

Lots of potholes have been filled in on this road.

Sky so gray, road gray tones and patches, dark black trees then bang the green the green. and the green a work of art.

@tosee @wylieclicks Although R suggested a mono version too, I VML the starkness of this image, the curved patchwork and its tones and then as Tom says '...bang the green...'. It's this rising greensward that makes the shot work...for me.

As you note, I would have liked to have seen this in B&W... but what I like more is that you are developing a strong sense of what you like in an image.
