I love how you've composed this, Frank! So glad that place "accidentally" burned down... Odd how the burn was contained to the buildings and not the field beyond... smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth. Hmmm, yes, how fortunate...
"O give me a home where the buffalo roam...." I'll be singing that all day now, Frank, while remembering this image!

The frame makes it look like my 1950's pix. I really like the composition of this image..It does look like blue skies are trying to emerge!

Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Oh.. it is cloudy! Fabulous! I've forgotten what clouds look like.

I love the dark clouds here, Frank. I tried to find the story behind the burning down of this house. Must have been "suspicious".
Love your presentation.
Buildings sometimes burn down accidentally but sometimes they don't.

Makes for a good picture either way

Well it looks like they have trashed their home.

The absolute detail of what remains of the buildings is set off beautifully against the hill and eventually against the mountains.
The people at this homestead would have had a magnificent view of the mountains beyond.

a windmill on the hill would make it complete, Frank smile
They should be made to clear away their rubbish!
