Cabin With Snowdrifts by rvwalker

Cabin With Snowdrifts

Just imagine what it must have been like to live in this cabin in the winter. Our strong winds have piled snow into drifts just inches away from places where the ground has been scoured bare.
WOW, that defines the term "rustic". Great shot, love the white on blue

Fabulous shot.

Lovely shot. I can't imagine living in this little cabin... it would have been soooooo cold. A different life.

lovely image

Brrrr.... what a thought! The living would be great in the summer though! The view surrounding this little cabin is fantastic!

This looks both cold and isolated. We are fortunate compared to the early settlers.

During difficult cold and stormy periods I often think about what the pioneers had to endure and I realize that I have nothing to complain about in comparison. Lovely shot! You have the best blue skies!

@soboy5 @bizziebeeme @lisatargowska @dandelionmama @smellychelli @taffy @mccarth1 Thanks, everyone. Linda's great grandparents raised 12 children in a cabin similar to this. We have it so much easier.

Whenever I see these old places, I imagine what life must have been like for the people who lived there. Great capture of this rustic scene.
February 22nd, 2014  
Wonderful capture. I love old cabins.
February 22nd, 2014  
Love my warm house. Love this cabin to look at, wouldn't want to live there

@pflaume @moxy @trinda Thank you, ladies. There are a lot of these old log cabins around here, but they are disappearing fast.
February 22nd, 2014  
We're so lucky, I can't imagine surviving winter here. The capture is great, and I love the textures.

Marvelous clouds, building, wispy trees, mountains in the distance. Only thing I don't like is the wood stack cut off on the right. I suspect there wasn't a way to frame it differently.. Darn!

Lovely landscape shot! I can't image living here with the modern amenities.
February 22nd, 2014  
Fabulous capture and colours. Reminds of the cowboy films of my childhood.
February 22nd, 2014  
I love the colour against the white snow.

@jgpittenger Cutting that off was my choice, Jane. It was quite large and unruly, so I would have had to make the cabin much smaller in the image to get it all, and the snowdrift curve on the left would have been much less prominent.. Oh well....

@anazad511 @dgrynn @sangwann @panic_c_button Thanks, everyone. Many of the first pioneers in this valley spent their first winter in dugouts. Just imagine that. Stephen, thanks for the follow.
February 22nd, 2014  
lovely shot! The first thing to catch my notice, was that the shadow on the left looks just like the horse chess piece! :D
February 22nd, 2014  
Super image - I like my brick house and services thank you!
February 22nd, 2014  
Nicely exposed with all that snow about, decent amount of detail in the shadows - another great winter shot Ross

@monkeykid I hadn't noticed it, but you're right! Thanks, Therese.

@ivan @ch1ppy_m1nton Thank you, Ivan and Chippy. The pioneers here had to be tough to survive in these conditions.
February 23rd, 2014  
Excellent lightning and composition.
February 23rd, 2014  
@gosia Thank you, Gosia. It was a bit of a challenge in the very strong wind that day.
February 23rd, 2014  
Love this. fav for me. I would sure love to capture some of my favorite barns around there in the winter like this.
February 23rd, 2014  
@libertylady Thanks for the fav, Alice. There are plenty of barns here for you too.
February 24th, 2014  
It doesn't bear thinking about Ross. I can see why the previous occupiers moved out! Wonderful cold colours here.

@seanoneill Some of those early settlers were tough, Sean.
