This is one of the oldest houses in my city, Sioux Falls. It is made of quartzite as many of the oldest buildings in town are. It sits on top of a rather steep hill paved with cobblestones made guessed it, quartzite!

What a beautiful home and your shot shows off the great detail. I can't believe how colorful the posts on the porch are. Nice job with this one, Dan.

This is a superb capture, Dan! That old house looks really fine to me. I'd trade up to it in a second. That's a great angle on the shot too.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Gotta love that quartzite. The colors really make this a standout. I like the way the porch is decorated in the style of the old "painted ladies"....and they even went so far as to make a matching retaining wall. So that means that all of this matches the cobblestones coming up the hill? FANCY ... Looks like it might have taken a few days to build this solid place. Your angle is good, as has been mentioned, and I like how the weak sunlight has picked up a little glow on the front of the house. Tip o the hat, Sheriff..another mighty fine capture. ;)

Souix Falls? As in, Souix Falls, SD? I don't know if there is another Souix Falls anywhere else... but assuming that's the one, I lived in Brookings when I was a kid for about five years. And I love architecture. This beautiful. Nice work. :)

Wow, Dan. That is PURRRRRFECT exposure. And, the color and focus are spoton. What a house. This is really nice. If i find this in the VB, I'll give it a great score. Great work.
