I shot this scene for a printed pano (that I have at home now); but also viewed interactively it shows very well two opposing sides of civilization: Creation and destruction. Nature and construction: Without the road and required construction work I surely had never seen this place (and even more beautiful ones later that day up the road) but at the same time the beautiful countryside that you can see across the river had to be sacrificed to an extent.
