Surviving Progenitor by WayneBenedet Surviving Progenitor by WayneBenedet
Buildings like this are slowly disappearing. They served an important function in our history, and continue to serve as a reminder of our ancestry. For now, this piece of the past has escaped annihilation.

I took this particular picture when I was out on a field trip with a class. Part of my work involves leading workshops on photography and processing. This particular one was in a place called Holland Manitoba. One of the participants knew of this location and got permission for us to enter the land. The structure is not visible form the road so if you don't know it is there, you would not see it.

I like how you can just see through the window the shape of dimly lit timbers. Very nice composition!

I like the contrast between the gray color of the sky and the grassy plains. The house seems to have witnessed countless winters and is now a part of the scenery. It's also a pillar of memory to older, forgotten times.

I hope to see more such deviations :D

This is one of those places I would never have found on my own, but I was with a class, and someone knew about it. So we all went on an expedition.

"Expedition" ... sounds adventurous. I make quite a few trips each year and I'm always amazed by the beauty of the nature.

Congrats again for the image! :D

I would guess that a couple more winters with snow will about do it in, but this winter probably won't be the one. Apparently the snow will be minimal

I read the farmers almanac to my dad. That is where I got the info. I have no idea if it will be right. We certainly need the moisture.

I read an article about how the artic ice has melted and that change in temperature affected how the jet stream will flow here this year..and based on that the northeast usa and europe will be having a harsh winter

I think some of that info must have been used in what I read because they were talking about things in the east of Canada not being so nice this winter.

I think that it is that a severe storm on the prairie is so unapologetically "in your face" that it is impossible to ignore ( as one generally can if living in a city) where buildings and other such man-made edifices give one a false sense of security and causes me( at least) to have to acknowledge and confront my own mortality when enveloped by the sheer power and majesty of nature On the prairie , you can see it coming from a very long way off( average visibility in Wyoming is 50 miles with nothing to block your view of what approaches( Like " Something Wicked This Way Comes" on Steroids) and, unless you have bought or built shelter, there is no place to run; 'Deal with it or die, puny human.'; I love it!

I lived for many years in Wyoming so I went through many, many thunderstorms,Hail storms, snow storms and Blizzards. And loved each and every one!

Hmmmmyes but I will have to let it stand because to attempt to describe the multitude of feelings prairie storms evoke in me would very quickly become impossibly wordy. Every time a big storm would come roaring over Casper Mountain (q.v.) headed for my house, I would be out on the front porch smiling like a complete idiot on an overdose of Xanax:lol:
