Island drives: the fascination of landscape....

...Rearview reflections and sliding horizons.

Later: reading Jenny Diski's "Stranger on a train" and coming across a road quote:
"It became clear to me that the passage of landscape before my eyes was in itself a particular way of viewing the country. Hypnotic, the landscape forever approaching and passing, skimming along, the eye snatching a detail, noticing a cloud, a bizarre building, a blasted tree, a startled creature, but not being able to hold on to it as the view rolls by."
