Schoolhouse in winter

The Centerville Schoolhouse dates back to the 1880s and sits in a park in West Dundee, Illinois. On the day that we got our only snowfall of the winter thus far, I headed over to the park to get some photos before sunset.

After taking this photo I wandered over to the schoolhouse. The sun had just set, but the eastern sky displayed some marvelous coral hues, so I framed up the schoolhouse to catch some of the sky. I applied the Orton process to create a nostaligic feeling in which to set the 125-year-old schoolhouse. The original photo is shown at right.
