When we drove up to Lake Havasu City on Wednesday,  a fast moving truck went past us on the narrow road and tossed a rock into our Prius’s windshield.   It was repaired this morning by a mobile service that drove up from Yuma and was here before 7am!

It’s not often that you see a windshield open in this way!

I used the dodge, burn and polarize brushes in Aperture.

  2. There are photo ops everywhere… 😉

  3. Glad you guys didn’t get held up on your trip. Kudos to the repairman!

  4. Clever take on the theme! That is great service and a shot you’ll never take again, I hope.

  5. You have to grab the camera when something this unusual comes along! Sorry about the rock incident, however. We have had that happen, but just chips enough to be annoying.
