On a recent trip out West, I did some night driving. It was the time of a new moon and with the roads virtually empty of traffic, I spent a lot of time traveling in total darkness. Of course my headlights lighted my way, but there was not much other traffic to gauge distance or refer to. I relied on the white lines and delineators.
At one point, I picked up the camera as it was at the ready on the empty seat next to me, and I snapped off a shot of the long vacant road ahead. Low and behold, I see a red spot off in the distance. As I traveled further, the red spot became a set of truckers tail lights. I lowered the camera and snapped a shot of my instrument panel. Without taking my eyes off the road to focus and aim, I felt that the results were pretty astonishing.
So, today's Ruby Tuesday shots are from a long stretch of Interstate 25 just North of Cheyenne Wyoming on a hot sultry night in June. It was near midnight and the road seemed abandoned. I'm posting this on Monday evening as many of the viewers are in parts of the world where it is already Tuesday. So, without further adieu:
Click on any image to enlarge. You may have to to see the ruby in this long shot of highway
Upon closer examination, the ruby spot ahead became this set of DOT (Department Of Transportation) approved markers
I'm actually traveling below the posted speed limit and the effort showed in excellent gas mileage. Oh WOW, the tank is full!
