from The Lonely Places project
This picture is titled "Lonely Grave" from The Lonely Places project. It is high in the mountains near Virginia City, Nevada, in a large and badly abused cemetery south of town.
When I first visited this place years ago, I had a vision of how I wanted to interpret this particular grave site. However, I had to return many times over several years before I found the right combination of light, clouds, mountains, and wind to make the image work.
Making an image that says just want you want can take a lot of patience and discipline. But when when you keep at it (and when Nature cooperates) ... well, let's just say it is very satisfying!
