Lovely photo, the light and use of the roads lines creates a great photo. Why edit if nature gives you this opportunity. Please share more

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken on Umpqua Lighthouse Road in Winchester Bay, Oregon.
Time
This was about 4:30pm
Lighting
This was purely natural lighting. I'm a novice, or better yet hobbyist, photographer using a Canon Powershot point & shoot so most of my photographs are taken in natural light as this one was.
Equipment
I use Canon cameras almost exclusively. This photograph was taken with a Canon PowerShot SX230 HS.
Inspiration
This was one of those "awe-inspired" scenes that I was lucky to happen upon while driving to our local lighthouse. When I came around a bend and saw this...I gasped and started repeating, "Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God..."
Editing
Absolutely no post-processing was necessary or done to this photo...other than straightening the horizon (I was so flustered I didn't pay attention).
In my camera bag
Camera, extra batteries, an extra memory card, microfiber cloth, and a flash diffuser for a DSLR that I found at a thrift store and hand-hold in front of the flash sometimes.
Feedback
I happen to live on the foggy Oregon coast so you'd think scenes like this are commonplace but I've only happened on this scene twice in the 12 years I've lived here. When you see something like this, pull over in a safe place or find a place to park safely and walk back. If no other options, stop in the road, turn on your hazard lights, and stick your camera out the window, like I did. I kept one eye on the viewscreen and one eye on the sideview mirror for traffic. Had I had a passenger, I would also have a photo of them walking into the light on the road.
