Out of Steam
The southwest has many well preserved ghost towns because of their desolate locations and arid climates. Many prosperous gold mining towns in the 19th century had steam train service to carry workers, equipment, and supplies to their remote locations. When I visit, I imagine what it may have felt like living in this frontier in its heyday. I chose this composition to feature the old supply truck and railway water tower. The jagged mountains convey the ruggedness of the environment. The cold blue sky emphasizes the expansiveness of this location. It complements the warmer colors of the main subjects.
