The Old Homestead

The joys of art when one discovers something unique. I was at Fort Steele near Cranbrook BC. I noticed this old building at the edge of a field. So off I went crossing the highway. As I approached the building I could see Fisher Peak in the background. Now here was a bonus.

The composition became the old house with the mountains in the background. The yellow of the grass complimenting the house and the green of the evergreens. I spent a happy two hours here watching the play of lighting and moving clouds.

This house was built sometime in the 1920s or early 1900.

Fisher Peak

Fisher Peak is the highest of the Southern Rocky Mountains. It dominates Cranbrook’s Eastern skyline. The peak has an elevation of 9336 feet.

I seem to always be looking at a hazy scene. I was surrounded by beautiful homes where I set up my camera equipment. I spent a good couple hours photographing here.
