I was in Rocky Mountain National Park waiting to catch sunset. I wandered up to the top of a hill that gave me a pretty clear view of the Mummy Range and the Front Range (with the well known Long’s Peak) across Moraine Park down below. As I sat hoping to catch some color in the sky I noticed the little curve in Trail Ridge Road heading out towards the Mummy Range in the distance. I like using roads with curves in them especially if they create depth to the photo like this one does as it leads from the bottom of the image to the mountains in the distance. S-Curves in the road, or in rivers, are especially pleasing because when you view the picture your eye naturally runs from side to side. In fact, the S-Curve is known in art as being the ‘line of beauty’ because it is thought to be more pleasing to viewers than a straight line, circle or other geometrical shapes.
