Very much a road to nowhere. Way to start the week, Louis!
Louis: Thanks Maretin, I also hope the trend was set here.
Soft road in Africa. Interesting image, Louis. Sorry I have no lyrics that fit.

Reminds me of Kay's beautiful soft green shots.
Lovely image Louis interesting how from the growth of the centre grass it looks like no-one ventures further up the road.
Louis: Yes I borrowed a little from Kay
I thought this was rushing water at first, nice one.
Louis: Thanks Nigel

in Africa? The pathes look European too, but a bit unusual is to follow two pathes close to each other (one for the way there, one for the return?)-a soft, nice pic, the blur-effects may give the landscape a little a mysterious atmosphere!
Louis: Thanks Philine. It is a two-track, meant for vehicles.
A road leading to nowhere! Superb image Louis. You did a great PP job!
Louis: Thank you Richard
A mysterious atmosphere, Louis, who had behind the trees?
Louis: Thanks cashondeo, no-one behind the trees smile
I see a ghost.
Louis: Not 24:00 yet

That road has a rather precipitous end. Good shadow and softness.
Louis: Thank you Red Pen, it goes on beyond the bushes.

Louis: gewoon
On one side I scared of what might be in the shadows on the other side I want to se what'saround the corner.
Magic shot
Louis: Thanks melting, not to worry - there are no lions about smile
This has a name, Louis. This is called Kay style! Obtained very well!

This is very good, more than good, great atmosphere here, I knew Kay would like it..wink
Louis: Thanks Astrid - ever since I saw Kay's trademark style, I tried to copy it and I think I am getting it right by now.
I like all the details I can see in the dark part of the pic - I like the dusty pattern I see (hope you understand what I mean) smile
Louis: Thanks Aksel. Dusty is part of being in the bush and shows up in the late light.
