Found this shot the other day when I was searching my hard drive.
It was Taken in Montana.

Looked better in Sepia than in colour :D
Enjoy.... Skippy

    Hey Skippy, neat shot and conversion. I, too, ocasionally tweak a photo or two with sepia.

    Hope you don't mind, but I tweaked yours a bit more. Added some light noise for that aged look, and some vignetting and another filter tossed in for kicks just to see how it came out.

    For what it is worth I believe this is a steam driven tractor. No rubber on the tires means very old. Glad you caught it before it rusted to nothing!

    That is indeed a unique antique and sepia shows it off well.

    Now Skip, I'll let you in on a little secret... that is not a tractor. It is my old GMC misery van, which is still in service (barely). I have decided to rent a car to make the trip to Montana again this fall.

    We were in Nevada City in Montana (Ghost Town)

    There was some pretty interesting buildings there too.

    Thanks for the Info ..... and thanks for commenting :D ... Skippy

    David, the car I had before the one I have now was so rusted out, that if you opened the boot you could see the road rolleyes1.gif

    I had it for 18 years, didn't owe me a cent, went straight to the tip after I got the new one :D .

    The one I've got now is already 10 years old and I tell you I will be running this one into the ground too.....cars are such a waste of money but unfortunately I have to rely on having one to get to and from work.

    ..... Thanks for looking, hope your Tractor (Van) lasts a couple more years for you thumb.gif ... Skippy
