Lens-Artists Challenge #100 – “The Long and Winding Road”

Today, it’s Tina’s turn to challenge us and the asks for long and winding roads.

Come, follow me to the fantastic island located in the nothern Atlantic: Iceland

even this is a road for cars

I love this image very much. The tiny car crossing the river in the front part of the image isn’t a toy car. It’s a big offroad van instead.


Or do you prefer Scotland?

Now, we’re on the Isle of Skye:




You can also travel in Wales.


Maybe you like a railrod more than a paved or a gravel road

A short trip to the Czech Republic for visiting their nice capitol: Praque

In the Alpes, like here in Switzerland, you can find lots of winding roads .

Sometimes, roads don’t look like a road, but they are like here in the wonderful Valley de Viñales in the north of Cuba


Also, rivers are roads:


You can see the roads even better from above by getting in an hot-air ballon:

Now, lets sing together with Louis Armstrong “(What a) Wonderful World”!


btw. some guys really love winding roads:


Take care

  1. Oh my goodness – an embarrassment of riches on this one Andre! Way too many favorites from this set but if forced I’d have to single out the Iclandic road with the cattle. Fabulous post!

    1. thank you so much, Tina 😊The horses are in Iceland. The sheep are in Scotland. Despite you could also see similar situations in Iceland

  2. Hi, Andre. Wow. A great collection. I have many favorites here, but I keep thinking of your first shot in Cuba and those wonderful wild horses in Iceland. I haven’t been to either place, but your shots of the vast open country are very convincing! Scotland is magical, isn’t it? We were there in the fall.

    1. Thank you so much, Patti. 😊 You’re right, Scotland is great. I enjoyed the time very much. But, I have to admid, up to now, no country I visited disappointed me.

  3. Love Iceland’s raw rustic landscape with the untapped roads that are still drivable! But Scotland is also a favourite, albeit slightly more organised.

  4. While there were a number of roads that I liked, I’m afraid the one in Wales beckoned me most. My grandmother was from there… 😉
