Forgotten Truck

Awhile back while out driving, I spotted this abandoned truck out in a cornfield - could not resist stopping to grab an image of this left behind mode of transportation.  Slowly rusting away, in time, Mother Nature will have taken back into the soil that which was transformed into this vehicle.  All things must come to an end.

Derek, fantastic lighting. Beautiful colors. Clearly defined clouds in the sky. So much texture in the photo. Wonderful subject. Evokes a myriad of memories and emotions. Part of my childhood was spent on a little place in backwoods Oklahoma. We'd see vehicles on the road in not much better shape than this one. So glad you took the time to stop for this shot and share it here.

There is a really cool forgotten truck a few miles from me. You have inspired me to stop and make it my model!
