Spring Mountain Ranch State Park is located 15 miles west of Las Vegas, via Blue Diamond Rd., in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The many springs in these mountains provided water for Paiute Indians and later brought mountain men and early settlers to the area. This 520 acre oasis was developed into a combination working ranch and luxurious retreat by a string of owners who have given the area a long and colorful history. Past owners of the ranch included Chester Lauck of the comedy team “Lum & Abner,” German actress Vera Krupp, and millionaire Howard Hughes. (From Official Web Site)

I like this ranch building in the shaded area and well framed by trees. The diffuse light gives a special mood.

J'aime beaucoup cette photo prise entre ombre et lumière et ces vieilles cabanes sous une belle végétation. Je me demande pourquoi la photo a été publié à 640 pixels, on peut publier à 1500 pixels maintenant. Ca n'enlève rien à la beauté de la photo.

These huts don't look very luxurious, but they are probably carefully maintained memories of the past and important parts of the local cultural heritage. Looking at the mountain I guess this could be a superb place for a visit. The light seeping through the nearest tree is very well captured. It gives the entire view a lovely warm tone.

This house is maybe lovely but not for life everyday.
Fifty year ago would this are perfect, today would a rich man this buy as summer house, certainly here in Belgium, these people look a old farm and restore, toward a wonderful new house or farm.
This create depth and perspective..
Colours and sharpness are perfect.
Very well composition, nice captured.
Well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

Long shadows gave a fine texture to the photo, Eleu.
Old ranch with a big wheel left there, maybe from the 19th century... and special light on the leaves of the big tree on right side.

I bet there was a family of 10 raised in this homestead in it`s day - I wonder who lived here -- their lives, their goals, their dreams. It's all about the delightful warm catch light and shadows that you captured perfectly here. Great looking image of such a peaceful. Fine capture, Congrats

You have managed the light well under unusual circumstances and as a result, the viewer is rewarded by a magical light show. Enough detail of the rustic cabins is visible adding a nostalgic mood. Very well done!
