Morning Light at Fort Churchill

Last April I happened to be at Fort Churchill State Park (in Nevada, along the Carson River, between Carson City and Fallon) and found the morning light, a little after sunrise, doing wonderful things as it shone through the windows and doorways  of some of the adobe ruins.

The park is working on nearly all the adobe walls this year to stabilize them against further weathering and erosion — a task they probably have to repeat every decade or so.

The next few were taken after sunset, in fading low-contrast light.

    You did great things with that high-contrast sunlight! And the other photos are also satisfying. I have a thing for old tarps and bags so I really like the two with the plastic bag and tarp in the foreground.
