Yellow Dash Road

by Peter Apers
(Rio Rancho, NM, USA)

Visiting Florida some time ago I came upon this road somewhere south of Tampa bay. It leads to the beach and I remember being struck by the red and yellow dashes on the asphalt. The Nikon F3 was loaded with my film of choice Kodak Chrome 64. I sensed there was an image here for the taking and so the story goes. I double stacked 2 linear polarizing filters to darken the blue sky and saturate the colors, a tripod and careful exposure resulted in this image. The silhouette of the trees was caused by under exposure of the shadows.

Great effort and in particular the clever use of lines as a compositional technique to create a lead-in effect for the eye to the silhouette of the trees.
