I would call any photo like this "Shattered Dreams". I always find them so depressing, no matter how beautiful the background scenery. It sure makes you sit and ponder about the people who gave it their best.

Yes, simple, that's the sky exactly as I found it.
Bynx, I agree these old places can be very melancholy, but in this case, the people who own the property have a much newer and more "successful" looking residence about a half kilometer further along the road. I think this was probably Gram and Grampa's place. It is slowly losing the battle with the relentless wind in this area, just a few kilometers away from a big wind farm.

You found a timeless beauty here. Is it far from the main road?

A historical image, showing both decay and beauty. Well done.

A beautiful snap of a changing landscape. I like how Bynx put it: Shattered Dreams. We seemed to hear echoes of people laughing by the fire after a day of hard work. Pete

I love this photo, it makes me want to re-build the house to its former glory, it just needs some tlc. The lighting is so even and flattering to the photo it reminds me more of a painting.

Great picture. Very well exposed sky with lots of depth. I guess it will also work well in B&W.
