Rural landscapes: the final resting place


After driving many times past an old, reddish building amongst a grove of trees in the middle of prairie valley, I decided to stop and investigate. To my very pleasant surprise, I found this old, abandoned truck beside the building and I spent more time photographing it than the structure.
The key was getting the camera high enough to put the top of the truck below the horizon. I extended the tripod as far as possible, then carefully balanced on a downed tree trunk to find the exact composition and make the picture.
