Behind The Lens

This photo is called Ghost Kitchen. It was taken in the ghost town of Bannack, MT the first territorial capital of then the territory of Montana. And yes there are presents found in this town. One is believed to have been our first sheriff, Henry Plumber. Mr Plumber was hung for telling the robbers when the gold and wages were being moved. Upon being convicted, he said, "Give me 24 hours and I will come back with my weight in gold." They did not believe him and no one has found the gold yet. He cried all the way to the gallows.
This was mid morning. But because there was a forest fire in the area, the light was very yellow.
It was the light that captured me for this picture.
I was using a Rebel T6, hand held. 1/60 sec. f/5.6 27 mm ISO 2500
It was the light.
Minor corrections.
In my camera bag
For a trip like this I carried my 18-55mm, 50mm (f/1.8), and 70-300mm. Then I made my friend carry my tripod....that's what happens after 50 years of being bff's.
I found the colors in the town to be very compelling. The site is now a state park and would make a great wedding venue.
