This is another picture of a long stretch of straight road fading into the distance. It’s not bad, but it gets marked down for being a common interstate highway (I-15). However, unlike my other pictures of similar roads, this one makes a very nice black-and-white photo too, even if I did overdo the sky a wee bit.

Eagle-eyed viewers will note that the top and bottom pictures aren’t actually identical. They were taken three seconds apart. I don’t really remember why I did this, but it might be because I thought the truck looked good in the black-and-white version.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
