Mike Hanton's photo of mountains near Richfield, Utah, shows that there can be an upside to car trouble. As he was driving last year on Interstate 70 on a trip to Minnesota, the water pump in his 1992 Toyota Camry froze. "The car coasted for seven miles before coming to a stop," Hanton said. "This was the moment when I was stranded. It was beautiful." The Santa Monica resident used a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.
