was taking photos driving home because we've had some extreme weather with torrential rainfalls and it looked amazing .. was too dangerous to take photos when the conditions were full-on unfortunately .. :(

btw ... i'm not looking at the phone i'm looking at the road .. i might glance down much like checking the speedo ... also it’s a rural road .. and not something i would ever attempt if I wasn't on the open road …

anyway nearly all the photos i took went into the trash .. this one was a miracle with the sign actually in focus ...

i wasnt even thinking of this challenge when i was taking the photos .. otherwise i would have dusted off the dashboard and taken a stack more photos ..
good luck to me .. ;)

i was riding high after 21 votes – average 6.8571 ..
then when i checked again after 23 votes – average 6.4348 ..
which meant i got 2 votes that averaged 4 ..
so i either got a 1 and a 3 or two 2’s ..
my score never recovered ..
i think without those two very low votes i might have ended up with a 6.5 or even a 6.7 .. :(

Nicely presented, the sleek car forging into the messy uncertainties of wind and rain.
Changed traffic conditions ahead, indeed. Like in a video game, the viewer feels like the driver, which can induce a moment of panic for those used to driving on the right hand side of the road. An oncoming truck is bearing down on me! Whew, that's too close. Rewarding, intimate scene.

Well you're all driving on the wrong side of the road FFS. Be careful out there!
