Lunchtime Photo

This is an onramp to Interstate 80 out in the middle of Nevada, somewhere near Elko. It’s the lighting that I like. There’s something about it that makes it look fake, as if the whole thing is on a sound stage in Hollywood. But it’s not.

And for you fans of both FedEx and extreme symmetry, a bonus picture taken from the same place is just below.
