Timeless by PeterJCoskun Timeless by PeterJCoskun
On very few occasions do I go out of my way to shoot any man made objects. This was one of those occasions. I found this old rundown cabin in Flagstaffs backcountry sitting beneath beautiful golden aspens. I have always felt the best way to shoot aspens is when they are backlit. They have this special glow that is just magical to see. I decided to shoot towards the sun as the golden glow of the aspens just made the old cabin dreamlike. I've always been fond of abandoned cabins and ruins, but to see them under this canopy of autumn color was truly spectacular.

Flagstaff, Arizona.

My goodness... Spectacular is indeed a perfect word for this photo. I wonder about the story of the house (abandoned buildings always raise that question in me). The people who abode there, would've been very happy with the surroundings, I imagine. I love the contrasts very much: decay and man-made versus glorious and full-blooming nature... The light is something special.

Thank you very much! I was always curious about the building, and later found out it was an old forest service cabin for the workers to stay while they were in the area working long before any paved roads connected to the dirt road this can be found on.

Thanks for sharing the story, it's not quite what I imagined it to be (but that's the beauty of imagination...). Would've been a great place to take a break from work :)

For a minute when I was looking at the cabin, I thought it was lined with mirrors, not realizing there are no "walls" to speak. Beautiful.
