Another shot from high above Austin, Nevada.
no images were foundThe church was built in 1866, making it the oldest in Nevada. It opened in time for the Christmas midnight mass that year. A fee was charged for seats in order to help pay for the roof. The bricks used for the 20 inch thick walls were fired locally.
I first photographed this church in 2004 on the TREK USA Relay (left). At that time it looked to be neglected and in disrepair. I had conflicting thoughts. On one hand, I thought it was a shame. It looked like it was a beautiful little church. On the other hand, I wished I could photograph the church in its state of decay.
I was very happy to see that St Augustine’s was saved.
On the down side, I did not arrange for a tour.
Really like the tilt shift. Dig the tones as well.
Loving that top shot! Very nice!
Bob, I’m finally catching up on your series. I have been gone for the last week or so. I’ll do a more complete read in the coming days…but the images are fantastic.
