An old abandoned shack in Wickenburg, Arizona (my favorite spot), I found it about a year ago. I like to come here when the clouds look interesting. I have come here on previous photo shoots, this time I wanted to try my wide angle lens (10-22)

Great shot Stephanie. Thanks for the comments on mine. I really like the B&W in your finalist. #398399

Stephanie--this is quite the amazing photo. I just love it. The stark white of the shack in the midst of intense color and clouds--WOW. Nice composition, too. #2463906

Outstanding!! What color! This jumped from the page and there was no way, I could pass it up without a better look! Just beautiful! I have been to Wickenburg but didn't spot this particular structure. I understand it's growing fast, so I hope they haven't stripped it of its Old West character! An absolutely gorgeous photograph! Very, very stunning. And the textures are phenomenal! #2465316

Thank you Dennis, Lorri and Nadya! Wickenburg is definitely growing! I also hope they dont strip it of its character too! There are some really interesting areas to explore there. I suggest going to The Vulture Mines if you are ever in the area! Its really cool! #2465432
