The Canadian Landscape Contest – Robert Scott
The Twilight Zone
This photo of an old abandoned house was taken along a gravel township road South East of Vulcan Alberta. I composed the shot between two large silo’s to illustrate how traditional farming life has made way for ‘big business’. The sun rises and sets and high above star trails remind us of just how quickly time passes.
These old abandoned homesteads are dying. Farmers are throwing a match to them because they have become a nuisance. Farmers pay a hefty property tax on these pioneer buildings all the while chasing thieves and vandals (and occasional photographers) off their land.
