Abandoned House in Field

House on field2

The house was right off the highway, North east of Scribner, on the right side of the road. In a line with other abandoned buildings, was obscured by a tangle of trees, and thigh-high drifts of snow.

I had to wade through waste-deep snow drifts to get to a spot where I could poke my head through the knotted branches enough to see the buildings, but it was worth it.

More than one structure stands in the middle of this Nebraska farmland area, camouflaged by the skeletal trees.

I could not tell if the property had been abandoned long. The windows appeared to still be in tact.

With the snow and biting wind, I was unable to get too close. I would have loved to have shot a few more of the main house.

The bare trees this time of year are simply breathtaking.

I shot these photos mid-morning. The light was perfect.

There is also a barbed-wire fence around the property, so I suggest if you go check it out, be careful! There was an opening in the fence, but I do not ever condone breaking the law. I did not enter the premise.
