Old Homestead

I am calling this a homestead although it may have been a small town. Located in the middle of a large mountain valley there was nothing anywhere near it.  The tall part of the building to the far right has what could be a steeple on it. Or it might be a watch tower. These structures were a good distance from me and what you see was shot with a 75-300 zoom lens at full zoom, hand held.

Homestead

An empty and long ago abandoned home sits on the Colorado open range remembering the families that lived and loved here. The sounds of laughing children and bacon frying have been replaced by the wind rushing through empty rooms. Still standing, it hugs the earth and waits for visitors.
