Borderline House by rvwalker

Borderline House

Yet another old house... This one is just inside the Idaho / Wyoming border on the Idaho side, in the tiny town of Raymond. In fact, the mountains in the background are in Wyoming. The town is so small it is just a few scattered ranches. There are no stores, or school, or Post Office, but plenty of natural beauty.
That's beautiful.

February 5th, 2013

@jgpittenger Thanks, Jane. On shots like this I try to get a foreground, middle ground, and background. It can't always be done, but it usually gets a decent result if I can put it together.

@pflaume Thank you, Lisa. I always appreciate your comments.
February 6th, 2013  
You sure got it here!

Such a beautiful photo, Ross. Dramatic. I love the foot print trail to the house.
February 6th, 2013  
@cathieg Thanks, Cathie. The trail was from a small animal like a marmot or skunk that inhabit the area.

@rvwalker It looked pretty tiny for a person!

I like the continuous shape trail, triangles everywhere, the roof top and the peaks, the angle from which you made this image and the fence post/ lean to right in our face. Is this a wide angle , I'll check exif in a min, don't want to loose my comment

@gigiz The lens is an 18-250 Pentax zoomed out to 18 mm. Thanks for your comprehensive comment, Gigi. It is helpful to know what people like or don't like about a photo.

Fascinating shot of this winter landscape. It's an area of the USA that I have never visited and I would love to, since I love nature.

@anazad511 Thanks for the fav, Ana. Come on out. We are fairly close to Grand Teton National Park, so there is plenty to see. And the people in this valley could sure use the tourist dollars.

Such beauty Ross.....I love where you live! Fav : )
February 6th, 2013  
Beautiful snow shot as always Ross!
February 6th, 2013  
Very nice Ross. You live in a beautiful part of the country. Looks like it could be some really hard winters up there.

@hollandcrew I think it is beautiful, but somewhat uncomfortable, here Al. A lot of people stay one winter, then leave for larger cities and lower elevations. Those of us who choose to stay think the beauty, peacefulness, and community spirit are more important than a little discomfort. As to this photo, it is in a valley higher, colder, and more remote than my Bear Lake Valley. When we are -20 F, they are likely to be -30 F. The people there are TOUGH!

This is really beautiful!!!

I live out of town, and love it... to be away from all the hustle and bustle of busy life... left to live at your own pace... This really is gorgeous!
February 6th, 2013  
@annbo Thank you once again for the fav, Ann. I am pleased you see the beauty in this.
February 6th, 2013  
@lily Thanks, Lily. I am glad you appreciate the snow.
February 6th, 2013  
@monkeykid Not every young person appreciates being away from the city. I'm glad you do, Therese. I believe you build better values for your life by being brought up in a rural area.

What a fabulous place to live!!! Gorgeous mountains, sky, superb old barns and matching fence! Love the fencepost as a starting point. A very interesting composition.
February 6th, 2013  
Thats a gorgeous scene. Looks from the footprints like someone has visited.
February 6th, 2013  
Another fabulous snowscape. Beautifully composed Ross and that f22 certainly produced great depth to the shot. A fav of course!
February 6th, 2013  
@ruthmouch Thank you, Ruth. It is pretty here, but it must have been a hard life in an old uninsulated house like this one. This valley gets extremely cold.

@fueast Some small animal was nice enough to leave tracks for me, Alison.
February 7th, 2013  
@blincodave Thanks for the fav, Dave. You are very complimentary.
February 7th, 2013  
Gorgeous! I like the track in the snow that leads right to the house. The kind animal couldn't have picked a better place to leave its trail.
February 7th, 2013  
@jenniferruge Thanks, Jennifer. I enjoy that line myself.
February 7th, 2013  
she's a beauty
