Riceville, IA - United States

I've come back and viewed this photo a number of times and I keep admiring the stark beauty of this church. It tells such a story of endurance of the church and of the people. The cloudy dark skies accentuate the crisp outlines of the building, pushing it to the viewers eye. I like very much. Thank you for sharing.

Definitely a treasure! You've captured the flat prairie landscape, the few trees and the open skies. Looking at this image I'm reminded of the feel of autumn chill in the air and the sight of a cold front coming in from the north. Our prairie hamlets and villages are becoming ghost towns as people are drawn to the cities. A way of life is changing as churches are boarded up ... and the old wooden grain elevators are being torn down. For me your beautiful work has captured, and will help to preserve, part of our history. Thank you!

Blair Wainman replied:

Wow!! Thank you Rhonda for your awesome comment!! It was an autumn day and it was cold and with a few added textures I tried to enhance the atmosphere that was there. I love the Canadian Prairies and try my best to preserve not only the physical beauty but some of the historical beauty as well!! Thanks for your inspiration and support!!
