An autumn drive down State Road 45

It’s a surprisingly twisty highway, State Road 45 between Bloomington and Bean Blossom here in Indiana. But then, this is about where the glaciers stopped flattening this state. North from here, roads run straight for as far as the eye can see; south from here, they must follow at times challenging terrain. State Road 45 leads the pack. I’ve photographed this road before, in 2013 (here) and 2006 (here), but never before in the autumn. This overcast but bright day gave surprisingly delicious light for capturing the colors and textures here.

  1. The Mrs and I drove this last year as another way home from visiting our daughter in Bloomington. Beautiful scenery!
    But all I could think the whole time was how wished we were in the Miata instead of the minivan.
