Sept 2017 - Hotel California

Recommended Posts

"On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair 
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air 
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light 
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night..."

 

Ok, so for this month we would like to see any screenshot taken over California, beach, desert or mountains, the choice is yours!

 

Usual rules apply, competition closes 30th September 2017, good luck!

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night.

Quite possibly the last photo ever taken of her, Al.

Hahah...made me LOL: I at first doubted anyone would like the warm smell of Colitas/colitis...because my Lyrictosis had always believed the correct lyric was Boletus refering to the edible Boletus Edulis Mushrooms native to N.America growing in the cool desert night air.

So after an internet search I found that the actual word is in fact Colitas and it is supposed to be mexican slang for Little Buds/Marijuana...why folks are smoking pot along a highway at night in the desert is a mystery to me, because it doesn't grow well there...I think the Eagles must have been on shrooms when they wrote that.

 

So after that short digression...Colitas is known to cause digressions and lack of focus after all:

Local boy's last entry with a little bit of everything.

 

Dropping into L35 Big Bear in a Malibu Turboprop. There is beach ahead, mountains to the sides, and desert just beyond on all sides.

Some fantastic shots this month the quality of the entries never fail to impress me!

 

This month's winner is Dodgy Al with this very well thought out picture depicting the verse "On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair"

I wonder how many Gypsy Moth's you get to see out at night in the Californian desert? :D

 

Well done Al :clapping:

Congrats on a terrific FS Illustration of that stanza...it's a dark image but I image the pilot must be smoking a well shielded pipe to be smelling Colitas up there.

Well Won Alan!

 

And Joe, the answer to your question is in the image: Zero...the Moth has no running lights. ;)
