You certainly made the most of your bonus extras on this USA love-in, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: I took advantage of what was on offer,Ray...I mean the landscapes of course. smile
You caught some really beautiful colors and patterns! I'm happy to be your chauffeur as long as you get images like this!
(USA Love-In) smile
Frank L Croston.: You were a great chauffeur, driving Mr Daisy about, Elizabeth,must clean the windows more next time though,or you have to weave round the bugs better! smile
Great shot....loving the colours
Frank L Croston.: One thing,amongst many,(one in particular) that I loved about the U.S.A. in the South west,was the colours,fantastic,like someone put all my favourite colours in one place. smile

Absolutely - terrific shot!
Frank L Croston.: Bit lucky,Chris...But hey,as someone once said,the more I practice,the luckier I get! Thanks. smile
great frame. excellent group of pastel like colours. in fact i find it more painting like than a photo
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Ayush,not too shabby from the car on the move,I would have put the chevron to the left a bit otherwise. It took me by surprise when I took a look at it,it is like a painting,I can't claim any credit for it though. smile

Dessert pastels are great and the chevron exclamation is real good. Would have been nice if it was positioned more to the left - but it must have been the chauffeur who was hurrying for the next stop and gave you no option.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis,I thought the same about the Chevron,but as you say,at sixty mph,I was pleased just to get a shot...! smile

Sure has colours
Frank L Croston.: Sure has, V'. smile
This is a fine image Frank, lots of details, not many colours, and yet abstract at the same time.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian,It took me by surprise when I was looking through my pic's,the colours are wonderful I think.
beautiful colours here Frank... superb shot!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke,glad you like it.
It reminds me of my trip to Arizona and Utah... fantastic places that everyone should see...
Frank L Croston.: Can't argue with that,Larry,I count myself lucky to have been taken on such a wonderful trip,by my trusty native guide. smile

I was thinking along the same lines as Ginnie -what amazing colours and shapes in the landscape
Frank L Croston.: I've seen what Ginnie means now,Anne,and yes it is just like it. Aren't they great, I almost passed this photo by,'til I looked closer.just a shame about the position of the chevron,but it was taken at about 60mph, so I won't beat my self up over it. smile
Reminds me of all the different coloured sand at Alum bay on the Isle of wight
