    The classic Forrest Gump viewpoint. After driving for several hours, I finally arrived at this vista on my way into the valley. The clouds didn't disappoint and with minimal traffic during this time I was able to compose and capture this piece in peace.

    Sweet shot. I never saw the movie so it's not a familiar scene to me but I do like what you did with this one. The clouds/colors are perfect for the framing here.

    I love it!!! The repair tar in the road and their wild pattern really adds to this one.

    Love this! what a great idea, and you did what you needed to with it. Awesome. To Jims point, the tar snakes make for a sweet foreground

    Great image Sunny. I finally got a chance to visit there recently and didn't even remember the Forrest Gump scene until a friend reminded me.

    Super! Great location captured with lots of great color and composition. Love the foreground road detail that adds a lot to the image. Really a inspiring capture with great PP.
