to the past and the future….

I made this image while standing inside of the roofless bunkhouse and looking out onto what was the front porch and yard area of the bunkhouse ruins at the Cardiff Mine in Cardiff Fork, Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, USA.

Nature has already invested some serious work in reclaiming the area…and time has begun to heal our deep wounds upon the Earth….

  1. Wonderful shot. I can feel the cold wall of the bunkhouse, as if I’m standing right there, and the warmth, too, as I look through the frame of the doorway out into the sunlit grass and trees. 🙂

  3. That doorway creates a very attractive frame, as well as providing such a contrast to the bright, vibrant world beyond.

    • I liked that the bright vibrant world was to be seen on both sides of the frame….

    • Thanks, Marie…it’s a great place to spend several hours exploring…or just sitting and relaxing after the hike that it took to get there.

  5. It’s sad to see ruins, but good to realize that nature will reclaim her own.

  6. Wow, what a great picture! I am fascinated by the “edge” where (timeless) nature and (temporary) human activity meet. Really enjoyed going through and discovering your Cardiff series. What a beautiful place! And so beautifully documented with your photos. Maybe some day I’ll see it in person…
