Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

I used The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for inspiration today.

Got this creepy shot while walking on a dirt access road that ran alongside the White River in Clarendon. That’s a deer skeleton (I think…!) under a rusty old tank of who-knows-what. Anyway…after coming across a couple more picked-clean deer skeletons, and one pile of fur and hooves with a weird-looking bird nesting in it, we decided there really wasn’t a good explanation for all that to be in such a small area, and hightailed it out of there lest we succumb to whatever they did.

I’d like to think they all happened to wash up on shore there during the last bout of high water, whenever that was. I really hope it had nothing to do with something leaking out of that rusty old tank.

IMG_5474Hand held, manual focus. Used Photoshop to decrease the brightness a little, and add some contrast to spook the image up, so it looked like I felt when seeing it!
