Its as if the white glowing door is being powered by the wire making some kind of beacon. I can hear it humming, what are they up to in there? Big shed Big science.

"And for the first time, he wished to be far away. Lost in a deep, vast country where nobody knew him. Somewhere without language or streets." (Sam Shepard)
What a stunning sky above this beautiful scene, Grant. What a brilliant yet melancholic composition. Made me think of a Wim Wenders film setting. Great story telling, maestro! Thanks for this beauty. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

I love how you have captured this endless vastness and this lonely house. Gorgeous shot.

I like how you have made the grass so prominent and accented the distance to the house and the surrounding space. The country house is surrounded by country :} And yet it is tethered to civilization by the electrical line.

Like the tall grasses in the foreground. Interesting rural shot, just a single line to this place in the middle of nowhere. Excellent find and capture.
