Remnants of an old homestead on the prairies in South west Alberta, Canada. The old barn starting to lean a bit after all the years, the fence a bit tipsy, and I guess that was some sort of pen for sheep or cattle. In the background, the magnificent bulk of Chief Mountain, miles away in Montana with the rolling clouds obscuring the summit.

    Just a bit of the old home!! Wonderful capture of it with the mountain in back. Bet it has a lot of memories!!

  • Oh I’m sure it’s full of memories, I just wished I could have tapped into some of them. Such a lovely location, I would love to live there and fix it up if I!

    A nice perspective! Captures the “feeling” of the place.

  • Thanks very much John, I had that same feeling when I was there, it was just a beautiful old place.
