Not too fond of driving close behind a load of logs like this! Taken through the front windshield while hubby drove.

CHALLENGE WINNER in the “Most Dangerous Road Scene” challenge in DASHBOARD point of view! ROAD PHOTOGRAPHY, August 18, 2011

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    More than a little scary, Dot – especially with the logs at that angle! Cool capture!

  • Thanks, Monnie. It wasn’t quite as close as it looks, since I had my zoom lens on the camera. I thought the same about the angle!

    Oh we get alot of these here in Ky……and most travel the secondary two lane roads, across bridges that are narrow…..I HATE when I see one coming my way!!! Had one roll over in an intersection in town not long ago….logs rolled everywhere…traffic was tied up for hours while they removed them, one by one!!!! They are VERY DANGEROUS trucks!!!!

  • Wow! That must have been some mess!
