Vehicle of Yesterday

Driving west along Highway 26 outside of Warm Springs, Oregon I noticed this abandoned car in someones field. Being a sucker for anything abandoned, I pulled off the road and navigated carefully over to capture the old vehicle with Mt. Hood overhead in the distance.

  9. I'd have stopped too, such an attractive rust colour. I wonder how long it will take for nature to reclaim it.

  10. Hello Sarah, We are home from our vacation as of yesterday. I am late commenting but I am glad I am becaude I love your old car photo. We too have taken photos of abandoned vehicles of interest. Love this shot with Mt. Hood in the background. We were on the ski slopes of Mt. Hood many years ago. Very exciting.

    Thank you for joining Blue Monday.

  11. Great find! Your photo is awesome.
