The Forgotten Farmhouse was nearly invisible from Bartlow road on a cold December day. Snow was falling vigorously in the fading evening light. The wintry conditions had created a unique mood around the old abandoned home. It became necessary to approach this place a bit closer than usual in order to capture a recognizable view.
The endless rolling hills and gentle mountains that are usually so obvious beyond this place had been completely hidden behind a white curtain of flying flakes.
This farm is located just east of Clarkstown, Pennsylvania, in Muncy Valley, USA. The photo was captured in just before Christmas in the winter of 2009, during our first big snowstorm of the season.
This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR camera through a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L telephoto zoom lens @ 110mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/750th sec at f/4.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a Manfrotto “pistol-grip” head.
