Corbett's Farm was a staple in the town I grew up in. The land was sold a few years back and the development has been in litigation for the past 4 years. I drove by the other day to see the farm house torn down and the barns as well. All that's left are 2 silos and a pile of rubble. I took this shot last night and used a matted frame technique I learned from Scott Kelby. I posted the image on my faceboook page and have lots of residents wanting prints. Thought I share.

Love the reflection. The ripple in the lower left adds a bit of reality.

Nice shot. That is good that the local residents like it too.

I live somewhat near Twinsburg, but have never heard of the farm before. I'd be curious to see what the old Geauga Lake/Sea World park looks like these days after being closed down.

It's just as depressing my friend.

Thank everybody. I took more, but those have more of an "end of days" look to them. Maybe I'll post them too.

Sad for sure, but great capture. Don't care for the frame though.
