Bootstrapped

This building, though not very easy to tell, is perched right on the edge of a small canyon. Likely it used to be a simple river, but erosion made the banks drop down at a precipitous angle. I have tried to find the exact location again this past June, but I think it might have completely fallen in by now. Nature wins.

Just look at this guy. Arthur, just look at him. He’s outstanding, and he knows it.

 New Coca Cola sign no more

This crusty old metal Coca-Cola sign was something I found laying in the dust of East Las Vegas. There’s a little paint still hanging on, but for the most part it’s camouflaged against the desert floor.

 Still Life with no Woodpecker

One of the loneliest piles of garbage I’ve ever seen… I had to get a photo once I noticed the hawk in the background.

Hard to believe that’s mostly stars instead of noise, right? Canon 5D3, Sigma 8mm lens, 72-seconds at f/3.5Flat Rock Butte is in the Umatilla Nat’l Forest. We did not pack for those temps, unfortunately. Freezing bloody cold for June 22nd, and only furthers my respect for this amazing area.That’s the glow from the campfire near the top of the frame.
