Dry and Very Dusty!

Recommended Posts

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!

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!

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
