Thanks Annie - they are both nice compositions.
You may want to consider a crop that includes a portion of the road, just to give the scene a stronger sense of scale. We all know how big roads can be, and when we see one that small, winding it's way across a gargantuan landscape, it makes us all stop and reflect. IMO I feel that would make for a stronger emotional impact, really conveying to the viewer just how massive the landscape is.
Thanks so much for your feedback. I may work on this one or another at 42mm and see if I can recreate the mood of the original but include the portion of road that's visible.
