Winter’s Abandon

As I have mentioned before, I love the abandoned and long forgotten as well as some modern structures that have character. Some are challenging to get to and require hiking or skiing and others are along the roadside. This winter, I have set out to capture these gems during the winter.

Call me crazy, but winter is my favorite time of year. I love how the winterscape simplifies the scene and makes the abandoned appear so beautiful while at the same time depicts the bleakness and the harsh conditions that our ancestors endured during the long winter days. The nearest neighbor was miles away and I can only imagine how lonely that must have been and how hard it was to survive without the modern conveniences of indoor plumbing, vehicles and electricity.

Enjoy Colorado’s abandoned!
