The End of the Trail (Photo)

Olympus E-P1, m.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8.

Some of my favorite photos have been those that reduce composition to its simplest form.

One of the reasons I like photographing in really bad weather is that it allows you to see less. In this case, the low clouds of a Scottish-like storm descending upon a local mountain that normally offers expansive vistas. On a nice day, this scene would also have been pretty, but complicated by the backdrop of forested ridges.

Instead, the trail simply ended, providing evidence for a flat earth, perhaps 🙂
