Really surprised at the result with this one though, no wonder I don't win often.

Thank you for all the comments and great votes.

I find it funny not many comments on this one, myself included. I was one of your 10s and I'm not even sure why. I think that's a good thing. I just was going through images I found pretty lackluster and then this one boom! Like a punch in the gut I felt compelled to give it a 10. I even tried to understand why after and the only thing I thought was "That road is a pretty straight line" but really looking at it, it's not that straight. As nam said before me, it just pulls you in I guess!

Oh, that road just pulls you in - emptiness for miles and miles. Congratulations on the blue ribbon.
