Steaming

By davidbailie  
.....................

It is common that folk travel the full legal 100kph plus on these roads ... many of them (the roads) are unexpectedly even ... (not quite so in my day)

it is perhaps not common but not unknown that individuals attempt to overtake under these circumstances ................

entering this billowing dust from the opposite direction leaves you virtualy blind for a second or four depending on the strength and direction of the wind .....

It is smart thinking to have your headlights on not I suspect that that would save you in the event of someone travelling at 110kph in your direction on your side of the road .. quite scary!

Good thinking to wind your windows up as well Smile

I ponced about with this in photomatic to heighten the drama a bit - not perfect but it'll do Smile

Really like the composition. Colours are very dramatic and the dust trail from the car gives a sense of movement. Very well presented, well done.

Remind me of the dust in the game reserves.
