Abandoned Slate Quarry


I went off again with the Abandoned America group to photograph an abandoned Slate Quarry in Pennsylvania.  I am constantly amazed at the number of natural resources in that state.  At this particular quarry they had a number of abandoned trucks that Mother Nature took over and became a part of.  I found I was shooting these trucks the same way I would shoot a portrait.  Each one had a different personality.  Textures used on the truck above is Shadowhouse Creations and on the truck below by Dirk Wuestenhagen.


As the morning wore on the sun came out and I was able to catch this flash of red among the leaves.  I’ll be posting more pictures from the quarry.  Once the holidays come around and the bad weather sets in my weekends on the road will come to halt and I will be able to process the numerous pictures I have taken over the last two months.
