An old hearse sits in a field across the street from the Masonville Mercantile. The Masonville Mercantile is a private company established in 1972 in northern Colorado.
A gold rush, that never really materialized, is what caused Masonville, Colorado to be founded in the early 1890's. Speculation was high but actual results were less than spectacular. The rumors were so strong that it is said a preacher in Greeley told his parishioners that he was leaving right after the services to go "hunt his honey" in Masonville. He also told the parishioners to leave on Monday so he would have a head start.
When I saw this image today, I just had to photograph it. My first though was the opening scene in the movie "Magnificent 7" as Steve McQueen and Yul Brenner drove the hearse to the cemetery.
The camera used was a Canon Rebel t3i with an 18 to 135mm lens, ISO set at 200 and exposure 1/200 of a second at f/9.
