cabin

Oct 152015
 

Being late in the season, the cabin was empty.  All the rustic mountain cabins were empty, ready for the maintenance they’d need before next year.  The emptiness of the cabins and quiet of the high Sierra made for great exploration.  There was a sense of mystery and charm, especially as the turning colors of fall made their way into the frame.  I sure love the mountains.

Nestled between the villages of Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo on the southern Caribbean side of Costa Rica is where you’ll find the gorgeous property of Casa Viva and the local beach area Punta Uva.  I love the Caribbean side.  It’s by far the less traveled of the two sides and as the wave action isn’t as pronounced as the western side, it presents a more relaxed entry into the refreshingly warm ocean waters.  Our cabin was set only a few hundred feet from the mostly vacant beach.  The jungle was near, the monkeys and sloths roamed the trees of the property.  The fruit, the fruit, the fruit.  Bike riding to the two villages.  A perfect place to call home for a time.

A lot of photography for me is simply being out and about.  I can head out on a mission to shoot a certain area or event and then find something completely unexpected and unplanned that pops up.  Or, if I keep open enough, I’ll head down a side road, just to see what’s there.  This cabin popped out at me one day while shooting something completely different.  I traveled down one of those side roads and voila.  I love the openness and exploration that photography affords me.

I wonder how long ago this place was actually lived in.  Now, it’s old and a bit beat up.  Still, I rather like it.  It is a bit spooky running into it high in the mountains but it is a part of a larger complex of cabins at Lundy lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains.  I went there looking for color and the turning of the leaves and I found this.  I wonder when it was when the last person actually stayed here?  Think I’ll knock and see if anyone’s home.

A campground resort closed for the season.  I imagine it being a hundred years ago.  Wouldn’t be closed then.  It would be alive and lived in, fire wood piling up in preparation for the coming winter cold.  After all, it’s over 7800 feet in elevation at Lundy Lake on the eastern side of the Sierra mountains in California and nights were cold in mid October.  There in the fall, I was seeking out the colors of the season when I happened across the closed camping resort.  I stayed a while to soak up the beauty and quiet ambiance.
