    This week's theme as brought to you by Giulietta73:

    Willow Springs has got to be one of the lonliest race tracks on Earth. A wide expanse of desert scrub flanked by a range of ominous mountains. It has a powerful beauty that needs to captured. Take the Pontiac Trans Am Firebird 78' around the track or off explore off-road, have a play with the time settings for awe inspiring sunrises or sunsets, and capture the desolation and isolation of a single Firebird roaring across the California desert. Enjoy!!

    There can only be 15 entries for the poll so I'm looking for shots that convey desolation and isolation the best. And it's a 2.0 edit :tup:


    CAR: Pontiac Trans Am Firebird '78
    LOCATION: Willow Springs race track
    PHOTOTRAVEL: No
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Single car shots only, car must be in shot.
