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!

    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
