Hi-Land Dairy Truck

Hi-Land Dairy Milk Delivery Truck
No More Deliveries!

This old truck sits by the road right outside Zion National Park.  I've passed it many times, but finally decided to stop and take a photo.  It was late afternoon and the intense golden sun emphasized the orange color of the cliffs and the red rust color of the truck, which I tweaked with an HDR look in Perfect Effects software.  It is often hard to find rusty, old 'barnyard' classics that are not surrounded by distracting junk or cluttered backgrounds, but with the right angle, this one was situated where I could get a great shot.

There is something about blue trucks and rust! I like that it's Hi-Land, too - appropriate to the setting!

Very cute. It almost looks as old as the cliffs in the background :)

I agree with Barb about rusty blue trucks.. it has an appeal. This one is a beauty.. tweaked or otherwise.
