Description

I like to combine my passion for photography with my love of exploring the 4 wheel drive roads and passes of Colorado. Many of these trails pass by or terminate in ghost towns and old mining areas. This is an image of where some miners probably lived in the 19th century. Originally I shot it in color but later changed it into B&W as that medium seemed to fit better with this aging and decomposing structure. One day, only splinters will be left as the harsh winters will take their toll. Photographers can help preserve this part of western history.
