    Posted: 17 December 2012 at 22:12
Hi everyone,

Once the Bison had moved on, I had the chance to wander round what is most commonly referred to as the Moulton Barn on Mormon Row, Antelope Flats. It is all that remains of the homestead built by Thomas Alma Moulton and this is one of the last plots of land sold to the National Park Service by the Moulton family. It is also one of the most photographed locations in Grand Tetons (and rightly so!) and, perhaps, forms an iconic signature for Jackson Hole and the Teton range. I tried in this series to investigate some more unusual elements of the barn, and I hope you enjoy this small wander round the plot and the associated buildings and remains:

1. In Context



2. Boarded Up



3. Peeling Away



4. Western Lean-To..?



5. Two Dark Rooms...



6. Electrician Required



7. Distant Peaks



8. Bison Reminder



9. Was Once a Fence



10. Not an O.K Coral



I will follow this up with a further series on the distant barn in #10 and some from the Chambers Homestead in due course. What this location must have been like at the turn of the 19th/20th Century and in the winter is anyone's guess; hardship doesn't even come close...

Thanks for loking and comments always welcome.

Kind regards, Neil.

Great set! My favorites are the details and here particularly #2 and #3.

Great shots Neil. I love those mountains in the background of the wider shots which remind me of my trip to Jackson Hole and The Tetons in 2005, just before I re-discovered photography!

I have the same exact shot as #5 in HDR.

Love the place.   Wish I could go back.

These mountains in the background are so very impressive.
I really like all the ones where the mountains are visible.
Best for me 7 and 9. What a sky.. what a colour.

Great series, although we have seen more angles on this house. I can never get enough of mountains, so that doesn't matter. For me #10 works very well, for me the best here. It gives a deserted feeling with a small house. TFS

A very welcome series. This barn is so frequently photographed in the traditional way with the mountains in the back that it had become mundane to me. I've seen a couple of images of 20 or so photographers lined up cheek by jowl taking the same shot - never understood how that is satisfying. You have presented the subject in a very refreshing way. Kudos to you as you comply with one of my favorite phrases "Why be normal?"
Every photograph is a self-portrait.

Thank you Roger but, for someone that's never met me, you don't realise how close you are with the final comment....

Seriously, I think it's the fact that it has been photographed so many times that I wanted to try and show other facets of the location and I hope I've done this. Thanks as well to all those that have commented so far with such kind and thoughtful comments.

Kind regards, Meil.
