Golden machinery, Goldfield, Arizona, 2011

Golden machinery, Goldfield, Arizona, 2011

Goldfield was built to support a gold mine that operated here from 1893 to 1926. This gold mining equipment has been rusting unused for the last 85 years, and nature has provided it with a golden patina, accentuated here by evening light. I used my spot-metering mode to expose for the highlights, and allow much of the image to fall into the shadows of time.

Always ready with the pun -- actually there is still lots of "gold" in Goldfield. It is a thriving tourist attraction.

The golden color is all that remains of the gold in Goldfield.
