Photographer's Note

This image conveys well the nature of a "ground blizzard", as they are called in this region. This occurs when the winds pick up fallen snow, ice, a bit of dust and redistributes it, at times creating whiteout conditions. Sometimes you can only see a few feet in front of you (that is if you can keep your eyes open).

This is another of the abandoned homesteads that seem to be in every corner of this region. I may have said it before, but it pains me to think of the blood, sweat and tears that were expended building these homes; for them to now be left with cold hearths and to die alone. I can't help to think if a home could talk, what questions they might ask. Where did my children go? Where did my animals go? Why did my family leave? What did I do wrong? Why does nobody love me anymore? :(

This is my first attemp at a large post, I would be very pleased to hear what you think.
