Loving this one! Beautiful rendition and a REALLY cool idea Bettina. This is really great...Biy do I remeember Payson...it's probably twice as big as it was last time WE were there!! Love your title here, too :-)A Pitstop in Payson probably beats a Car Crash in Carefree! <3

@Denny Jump Photo: LOL you're right. it also beats a breakdown in Bisbee, or a tantrum in Tucson. ;)

@Mohammad/Navvab: Thanks so much! :)
Yes !!!! I imagine this point as an End of the World......Last station before a Large Desert.....Last time You see water(and only on the ground,after the rain),and last chance for You to" give a drink"to Your car.......The wind is shufflin' and the doors of an old saloon are sadly whispering.....A vulture just came to land down on the City's indication,and,unfortunely,there's no more gas oil in the petrol pumps.........Hard Day,Bet'.......Hard Day.......

@STEED: LOL. That's n awesome story! It's the apocalypse. Nothing left to do but eat the last chips in the car and play the radio as long as the battery lasts. ;)
Awesome shot ... love the color palette and reflections!

2 Aug 2013 11:15pm
Well - this is fantastic ! A superb composition that reminds me of a film or movie poster. A great title too "Pitstop in Payson". Rather than comment too much - I'll wait for the movie to come out ! Excellent camera work and process !! Good travels !!

That sure does look rained on! Great reflections, I love the way the mucky water mixes into the cloud reflections it has a sort of effervescent light texture, paired with the stones to the bottom left, it's great!

Congratulations on your deserved spotlight here, it really is magnificent, I feel for some
reason it was shot from a pirate ship, your photos are really in the art zone, like no other,
so when I see them I am always mesmerized !~
7 Aug 2013 6:32pm
@Phil Morris: Aww thank you for that. I love the image of a pirate ship here. This is my favorite one, so I'm glad you feel that way, too. This was the art zone for me. :)
19 Aug 2013 10:38am
Wow..this is truly a wonderful shot....love all the subtle colours, the texture in the bottom left corner that contrasts the softness of the rest of the picture.
