Time Stands Still In Sunlight by kkart Time Stands Still In Sunlight by kkart
I love “rural decay” and I mean LOVE. There is something about the eastern plains of Colorado and all the abandoned farms you see. A time gone past of a life once lived. This one in particular had me guessing a great deal ….best guess is that it was abandoned probably in the 40s or 50s as it did have power lines in areas although quite old, complete with 2 barns, a farm house and a couple of out buildings. We had some of the most incredible light at sunset to work with as well. Utterly just amazing stuff which made the buildings and landscape simply dance. I wonder though who once lived here, where they went, how many families were raised here and what happened to them?

God, I love abandonment when it comes to buildings and properties. It really makes you think, its all very suspicious. This photo is spectacular.

If only these places could talk. Permit me to speculate and say that I bet this place along with so many others on the plains were abandoned during the dust bowl days of the great depression 1930's. Times were sooooo hard, many places were abandoned then. Wonderful photo thank you for sharing.

This is a fantastic capture. I love the rural decay also, always wondering who lived there at one time, why was it finally abandoned. The lighting is gorgeous! Nicely done!

I love this, If I could only find some land like this that i could afford I would go off grid in a minute, Forget the rat Race, live off the land, turn my urban backyard garden into a real self sustaining Homestead. I think everyone asks at one time or another why are we here, whats the point? Wev'e lost touch with real living, Just my opinion but Real Life is living not being a slave to a system designed to keep us productive for others. I guess I was born in the wrong era. Thanks for posting this It is a Beautiful, Beautiful photograph.

Very nice indeed, I wish (Or do I?) we had more of those here in Sweden... But now that I live up north, perhaps it will be easier for me to come across.

I love the color contrast. I live on the Front Range, and I know these kinds of places. You've captured the mood excellently.

ohh...nice. very nice capture. the warm tones totally compete with the 'cold' atmosphere of the subject matter. Nice work.

I like this 'decay' you speak of, as well. there is this house I pass a few times a year that I can't get out of my head. :) I really need to stop and shoot it one of these days. If only it wasn't on a busy highway...One of these days. Thanks for reminding me of it with this great shot!!

It looks very mysterious with that kind of light. It really raises thoguhts about the owners and people who lived there long time ago.
I'd really like to see the same place under a full moon. It would probably look incredibly creepy :D
