    I remember as a kid LOOONG before the Highway through this area was divided, seeing this sign over the road. I'm also pretty positive that I remember it being lit WAAY back when I was a little kid.

    what kind of camera are you using because the color is not what it should be. You need to play with your white balance a bit

    Cool idea and composition, but they're too dark. The motel sign letters get lost in the trees in a few of them. And like my D70, the colors are sort of "blah"...

    I know, the sun was setting behind me and they just turned out crappy.

    Might go back on sunday, and spend time there with my pol filter and tripod, during better lighting.

    the trees look a little funky, like they're fake.

    those photos are just creepy. I like them, but the whole story behind them just screams serial killer or something.

    I posted these on a more local message board, and 20-ish years ago or more, the Skyview Motel was in there...somewhere...

    I'm gonna have to go back and do a lil poking around. :)
