This old guy falling back to earth is located along Highway 93 near Salmon, Idaho.
It reminded me of my early education, when my 4th grade teacher read to us Laura Ingall's "Little House on the Prairie" books, but the setting there would not have had the magnificent mountains backdrop.
I wonder what stories and experiences this home from the westward movement could tell?

Ray, what a beautiful country up there...your composition is very well composed, very artistic and it looks more than a painting..great color an contrast, I've visited this country back in the 90's and I always remember the laid back mood and the natural beauty..
all the best

This is a superb picture, that looks almost like a painting.The muted tones of the mountain are carried through to the weathered wood of the cabin.I`m sure there are many tales to be told, relating to this idyllic spot.

great photo of an old abandoned cabin and other structures. A nostalgic look at the Old West here in the states. Good color and a showing of fall colors along with the western setting.
This would make a good theme along with other old ghost town images you have in your gallery,

I think not that old barn or old house yet long, shall remain stand up in these position.
This real a very nice picture or a nice postcard out of these area.
Excellent rural picture, with perfect sharpness and clarity.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Who cares the falling wood building? The mountain behind it is breathtaking. The truth is that the building is a great addition to your picture.
PS: This is not only about picture removal. It is about someone plays dirty trick. At beginning of this year, another Chinese American, he is a very talented photographer (later on I found he is a guy). He posted a very beautiful Canada landscape picture (icy lake), no flower whatever, perfectly fine. Because we talked in Chinese (thatís the only reason I could think about it), caused his pictureís removal. It was the same pattern, stayed long enough, then disappeared. So, I suspected someone who reported to moderator. He was so angry. He quitted TE for good. That was the purpose the person who reported to moderator wanted.

Another very evocative image.Time reclaims and calls all to dust. How do you know it's a guy and not an old girl? Yes, The Westward Movement, Go West Young Man and take what is not yours by the sward, gun and the Bible.Lovely palette. Regards. Klaudio.

I guess an estate agent would class this as a handymans dream, or a doer upper. Despite its apparent requirements for renovation, this is still a beautiful house, the bay window in particular stands out as a really nice feature, as does the veranda. In addition to that, what a view the owners woke up to every day, and you have caught that view superbly. The whole image is composed perfectly to get across the sense of place of this fine old ruin in a wonderful natural location.
Cheers as always

Looks like an awesome place to live too bad about the deteriorating condition of those cabins. Nice capture of the beginning of autumn colors and the low hanging clouds on the mountain top. Well done, tfs.

As you say, if walls could talk, the stories they'd tell. This poor old bloke's seen better days, but you couldn't ask for a better view in which to do it. The mountains absolutely dwarf the cabin, yet look to have been living in cooperation with it for so long, they've both even taken on the same colours and textures. I remember the TV show Little House on The Prairie and your image certainly evokes images of the great American West.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
