Solar Decay

This year’s excursion into the arid Eastern Oregon wastelands farmlands was a great success; more images to come. The general effects of Wind and Solar decay on the old homesteads and ghost towns is both haunting and beautiful. The effect in this one image was actually a technical error, but I really enjoy what happened.
