The State Park of Bodie, CA is a ghost town in “arrested decay”. As you walk around the town, there are artifacts from when the town was a functioning mining town. This is the end of a steel cable used in the mines to lower and raise the miners down the shaft.
The image was taken with a Nikon D300 and a Nikkor 105mm f2.8 macro lens. The exposure was for 1/40 of a second at f8 and an ISO of 200.
