Rolling south on I-75


The truck is rolling south on I-75 toward Tampa or the Turnpike, the latter of which would take him to Orlando. I'd expect the truck is traveling at between 70-75 miles per hour. The sign signifies the second exit for Ocala on I-75 heading north.

I played with this a bit in Photoshop, using the polarizer.

Wow, a truck within a truck. Nice colors, they're so attractive and that's some speed I guess.

You did well in playing with it ;-) I like it a lot. That's because I love American trucks!

Yellow wheels within yellow wheels. Great image against an all green background.

I have rolled south on that road many times--usually on my way to Disney!

Hello Jacob: I've just left a link on the spooky cross picture ;-) for you to consult!

Jacob said...

@ Ceil - I consulted. Sheesh! The vagaries of human religious imagination continue to amaze me...we have a lot of the same stuff here but not quite so bizarre and spooky.

Thanks for the link, I think. ;-))

Did you tell us whether or not you were the one driving??????? Susie of Arabia gets some great highway shots too. This one is great, especially the green on green on the sign and then the yellow on yellow with the trucks!

Nothing like bright yellow trucks to add colour to anyone's day.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow for a new series!

Have passed that sign many a times....rolling the RVs for delivery to Nokomis and Fort Myers, or just to visit the sis at Naples, or stop by my old hometown of the 1950s, Venice and buy some cigars at the Cigar Room.

Popped over from David McMahon. Glad I did. What are the chances, a yellow truck pulling a yellow truck, and you capturing the moment. Wonderful.
