Photographer Noel Kerns' photographs make you feel like you're on the most surreal, perfectly creepy, possibly haunted road trip across America ever. It's a shame that over-the-top adjectives get used so often to describe mediocre things on the internet, because these photographs are Stunning, Breathtaking, Amazing, and yes, will probably Restore Your Faith In The American Road Trip, or something.

Kerns has a new photo book out called Night Watch: Painting with Light that provides "a glimpse into a nocturnal world of abandoned wastelands... both urban and rural." While you're basically looking at lost hope and abandoned dreams speckled across the states, the Light-Painting technique that Kerns uses make it all look so beautiful.
