life on mars

On my way home from the office this evening, like most evenings, I had a choice between two routes.

Both take the same amount of time but one consists of 50% more country roads.

With the forecast for blowing and drifting snow, I chose the interstate heavy route.

Ooops!

10 minutes from mi casa, I came upon an overturned truck in a ditch.

As I sat for an hour as the vehicle was pulled back onto the road, I entertained myself by taking photographs of the countryside illuminated by the mars lights from the emergency vehicles on the scene.

  1. Well something good came out the wreck. As mean as that may sound. I like the colors in this shot, a lot. The thick red of the clouds in the background remind me of Mars. You know, because I take weekly trips there.
