11/12/11 – Featured in the RAIN! THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY Group.
This was taken near our home in Columbia Falls, Montana (USA). There are still a few farms left in the Flathead Valley, but they are being sold and torn down as the value of land skyrockets. All the wealthy people building vacation homes in this area have caused land taxes to increase so much that the family farms cannot afford to stay in business. Shaun and I decided that we should capture as many of them as we could in photographs, before they have all disappeared.
I took this on a stormy day last Spring, and am uploading it for the Best Photo of Farming Equipment challenge in the A Little Bit Country! group.
