US-93 Alt and White Horse Mountain, Elko County, Nevada
On the empty road in the arid lands of north eastern Nevada the earth is broad and distances are deceptively vast. The photograph is from the largely underpopulated part of Nevada just south of the Bonneville Salt Flats.
With the yellow line of the road measuring out the distances into the photograph, the land has a sense of the infinite. Light and colors are as clean and pure as the sky and the light. It is places like this where prophets and shamans would go to speak with God. Desolate, vacant, and straight as a streak of light the desert road carries with it a touch spiritual for the contemporary driver, holding the promise of speed and unimpeded travel.
