I like the cabins and the tufty vegetation you placed in front of 'em, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It took a lot of work, Ray....

This shot reminds me of the first nuclear weapon test at the Trinity site by the United States at on July 16, 1945... your treatment did the aging Frank....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: I can see what you mean, Peter,after, or before? smile

The sweep of the land matches the sky perfectly here Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris.
Perfect title for this splendid shot, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It seemed obvious, Ginnie...smile

I like the "shape" of this, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elisabeth.

I think it is what is known as a "Shotgun" shack.
Frank L Croston.: I think it qualifys for that, Mike.

a fascinating photograph- but I might feel lost in such a lonely landscape.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Philine, it is huge, you wonder what effect it would have on people living there.
The sky seems alive. Awesome shot.
Frank L Croston.: Everchanging, Mary, thanks very much.
What an amazing B&W
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chantal, I'm pleased you think so.

its got a nice view.... have you been watching the Ray Mears series about the pioneers travelling across the states? Amazing stories
Frank L Croston.: Just to the right of this is the little colorado gorge, a spectacular place, it being the reason we stopped here. I saw one of them last night, as you say, amazing, especially some of the old photo's.

A dab or two of paint, a few paints of glass and they will be as good as new. Looks prime rattler country, though, so count me out smile Good editing.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, a quick trip to b&q, or home depot in this case, will sort it out, I am very wary of the R' thing, I haven't, fortunately, had the pleasure yet smile
Great sky and landscape, it must have been a lonely place to live.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin, it was quite isolated, I spoke to a guy who told me he was brought up in one of these huts.

Great title and I love the dark mood of this shot.
The clouds and the sheds are wonderful!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much,Astrid.
You'd have to do them up to make them worth demolishing. Good picture though Frank
Frank L Croston.: They are returning to the earth, Bill, indian tradition, apparently. Thanks.

Great stuff - I like how the clouds seem to fan out.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, they did help the shot.

Funny how those clouds appear to be bunched together like that Frank.
Frank L Croston.: You get some strange, isolated formations, Chad.
I couldn't even imagine living out in the wilds like this although I'm aware Elizabeth used to, and on her own I believe. And like you the 'R' thing would be a big problem for me, I hope you never come across one whilst you are over there.
Frank L Croston.: No, I don't think I would fancy being this isolated, a nice detached would do, I don't want to think about the 'r' thing.

Looks like a scene from an old western. Cool shot, Frank
Frank L Croston.: That's fine by me, Hollie, thanks. smile
They do get some skies, don't they?!
Frank L Croston.: Spectacular at times, Tom.
Spectacular in their deserted-ness
Frank L Croston.: They were deserted ok, Larry. Thanks.
Oh My Love! I commented on this last night and didn't hit "submit"! Silly me! I'm sorry!
What I said was:
This is so cool - and your processing makes it look much better than it was! smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth, I'm sure there is a joke there somewhere, but I'll leave it. smile
What a capture!
