A Bend In The Road by Dennis Bernhard

A New Mexico road bending and winding up a hill.

Once again, the hills got me. I loved how the road disappears around the bend to the left and then reappears on the other side of the frame to disappear once again up a hill and around another bend. 

And again, it was astounding how long I could stand in the road without having to worry about a car. I'll never get used to that.

The Breaking Bad House - Route 66 Road Trip Day 6 by Dennis Bernhard

If I could have one day over on the trip it would be this one. Not that I didn't enjoy it, but I definitely would have spent the afternoon and night in Santa Fe. Grabbing lunch outside and driving through Santa Fe was really cool, but I would have loved to explore the city some more. 

Beyond Santa Fe, seeing the Breaking Bad house was really cool. I wish I didn't chicken out and just grab this photo but the owners sitting in the front yard really threw me off.

Dirt road and a Flower by Dennis Bernhard

I made both of these photographs on desolate stretches of Route 66.

I was on this dirt road section of Route 66 for 18 miles. I loved how the long stretch turns right up the hill goes off into the unknown. 

I also find cattle guards incredibly intriguing. I can't believe they work.

I made this photograph on a stretch of Route 66 where the vegetation on the side of the road had started to creep into the road itself. This section had a number of strong groups of sunflowers. I liked how this bunch stood out against the mountains in the background.

Almost Crashed My Drone - Route 66 Road Trip Day 5 by Dennis Bernhard

This was a full day on Route 66. I got visit The Big Texan, Cadillac Ranch, drive a dirt road, play with and almost crash my drone, drive into New Mexico and end the day with an awesome sunset time lapse.

New Mexico Sunset Timelapse by Dennis Bernhard

This was a fun day. The weather broke enough to allow me to focus on some isolated storms and this awesome sunset behind the mountains in the distance. 

My favorite part though is the cows grazing in the prairie. They look so tiny and are moving so fast.
