19 Feb 13. Driving along the Baker Lake road we decided to press our luck and follow it to the end. As we made our way over some less than perfect road conditions, but a roadway on whose sides there was some wonderful scenery, we felt encouraged as ever so often we were passed by a vehicle going in the opposite direction. Not seeing anything off the side of the road where it shouldn't have been, we kept going until we truly reached the end of the road at which point we exited the SUV, and all three of us had some fun in the snow. Since Maggie loves snow, we couldn't resist letting her romp around for a bit and as usual she seemed to be having a good time in the white stuff.. Now the road didn't really end where we stopped, it just wasn't plowed any further. So while it was the end of the road for us, I'm rather certain the local inhabitants didn't see it as such. I took a few shots of the roadway just disappearing and selected one of them for today's submission. The original was in color, but I took it into a filter to render it B&W, and then added a very tiny amount of toning, both of which being adjustments frequently made in the chemical darkroom. Nikon D300s;18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/320 sec @ f / 7.1.
