Look at my description journal thread in the Fiction Writing section. I'm too lazy to describe it again.  ;D

Anyway, here's my description for these pics:

______ walked along the road, kicking dust into the air. He/she listened to the crunching sounds of the bone-colored pebbles as they met with the soles of his/her shoes. An electric post cast a shadow across the road, and stood as tall as an adjacent tree. Beyond it, the road dipped and curved around a few colossal boulders, leaning against one another. Weeds engulfed the sides of the rocks, their leaves glistening the sun's light. _____ continued onward and descended the dip in the road, until he/she came to an area void of plant life. A little further, a bridge crossed a dried creek, whose rocks were cast in the shadows of branches that fell to caress the stream-bed.

Gasp!
Now you have inspired me...I must log out and spend the next three hours writing as crazy-descriptive as I possibly can.

This actually came to me because of the book I'm reading for school. It's called Keepers of the House by Shirley Anne Grau. She is the most descriptive writer I have ever encountered. Tolkien was descriptive, yes, but she surpasses him by quite a few miles.
