Dry and Very Dusty!

10 posts in this topic

Conditions couldn't have played out better that allowed this one to be captured! A couple of days ago my buddy Andre` were combing the countryside in search of a cougar that was sited. Upon happening down a very dry, dusty gravel road in Andre` pick-up truck, Andre` spots this old well pump just sitting there in the middle of a grain field. We stopped to investigate and to judge weather or not there would be a decent photo opp. As this was happening, huge amounts of dust caused by the pick-up started blanketing the field and the old pump. because of the very low angle of the sun I quickly realized that there was about to be a great photo opp...

I wasn't disappointed!

WOW! that is a sweet shot Stu. The photo alone is amazing. The story makes it even better.

Why can't I see these pictures?? I used to be able to see all of them, now only a few come up. Some avatars don't show up either.

I like the mood! I'd consider cropping off some from the left side for comp purposes. Good eye!

Thank you for the comments!

I did look at cropping it, but I wanted to include the hydro pole shown in the distant left.

The cropped photo does work and still offers good composition! I feel that the vegetation located at the bottom of the pump does it some real justice too...

Awesome capture Stu. I like the 1st one the best as well. Sometimes less is more, but sometimes it's not.

That's a great effect! I like the first one, too. I think the powerline(?) in the background adds some depth to this.

As usual I go against the grain and prefer the second shot with out the powerline. Its a beautiful shot on its own and I don't care for the distraction of the pole of the background taking me away from the pump.

Really doesn't matter you've captured a winner with either shot!

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
