photoblog image Safe From The Burn

Safe From The Burn

You've seen this shack before... on mine & Frank's photoblogs...  this shack sits alone in the meadow north of Kendrick Mountain - in an area known as Kendrick Park.  The fire featured on Frank's page today was north of Highway 180 leading out of Flagstaff toward the Grand Canyon, and this shack sits on the south side of the highway.   I took this photo on a wintery day in February, with snow trying to reach the ground - the warm, dry air turning it into a cold mist instead.

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Sherri! What a compliment!
You did a great job with this, Ell'. It is very photogenic.

This is a fabulous shot, Elizabeth and I love your presentation.
I am so glad this was was not burnt, but the heat will give a problem again sad
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Astrid!
I am too... we'll see what the summer brings...
So glad this shack was spared, Elizabeth. Your image of it immortalizes it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I don't know how old it is, or who owns it... It makes for good photography, though. Thank you!

The excellent foreground commands my attention, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Those grasses and dead flower stalks do add interest!

Interesting rather cold image Elizabeth, an identical summer one would be nice
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was a cold day! I'm sure I have some summer shots... Here's Franks from another early spring visit to the shack: http://blueskys.shutterchance.com/image/2016/06/16/in-the-wild/

Sounds like an interesting weather phenomenon. Presumably that shack once once someone's home. It makes for a good photographic venue.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Even a dormant volcano can create some strange weather! I'm afraid I don' know anything about the shack - wish I did... Thank you!
I can't imagine snow turning into mist but here I can see it !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: A strange phenomena... We have a lot of strange weather happenings!
That is a weather phenomenon I've not heard of before. It certainly made for a great image, especially with the old shack, long may it be there, another oen for you 'My best Images' folder, that must be getting quite full by now.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It seems surprising to many of you gentle English people... You get humidity of 12% and this kind of thing happens! Thank you so much for your compliments, Brian!

I love your treatment Elizabeth, so atmospheric.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Anne! I really appreciate that!
I love the hazy grasses and background trees very much. So painterly.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Mary! I like this one, too.
I like kind of hazy atmosphere. What a lonely rural scene. WIsh I knew where Frank's photos are located. I'd like to see his too. I will look down you comments list and see if I can find him. Friendship.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ruthie! I love this meadow... lonely indeed - until it's full of elk or deer, or antelope!
I see you found Frank's page... he is my husband, so you often get a scene from two different view points... two different brains! smile He's an amazing photographer - if you have time to cruise through his archives! smile
Like a shot from an early colour movie!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Tom! I liked the effect!
