  1. Now here’s a place that most definitely has stories to tell. Love the snowy hills in the background, and the billowy clouds on their crest lends an extra measure of drama and mood. Very nice, indeed, Scott!

  5. A sense of imminence from every corner….kind of spooky…..the dead tree, the festering buildings, the smokey grass, the crashing wave of the mountains, and the light…..makes me want to burn rubber. A great composition, Scott.

  7. I’d love to live there, but I can see how a lot of people wouldn’t.

  8. I love the processing here Scott, it completely changes the feel of the image without adding anything or taking anything away… if you know what I mean. Great shot.
