Through the Grain Elevator Window

Wooden grain elevators were once everywhere in vast western wheat growing regions of North America. Time has taken its toll and now very few are left standing. These relics have been replaced by modern round steel grain bins. This particular one was in dire disrepair. A local conservation group was trying to restore it for tourism. Tony, our tour leader, pointed this composition out. Using a frame in composition is often a desirable technique. I used a 9 stop HDR to balance the dark inside with the bright outside light. Thankfully, the building did not fall down while I was inside taking the picture.
