Rural Thursday #12


This very nice, working windmill is right beside the road on the way to Tombstone. There was still quite a bit of "bushwhacking" involved to get the angle I wanted and I'm sure the people driving by were wondering "What the heck is that crazy woman taking pictures of out there in the mesquites?!?" :)


Linking up with Lisa and Nancy for Rural Thursday.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Thanks for sharing, they are very few and far between, but I think there may be some around here still, I need to take camera with me more often. That way when there is an opportunity I could be prepared.

Love old windmills!!

Susan said...

Oh, what we do for art! LOL! That is a great photograph. The only windmills we have around here are the size of the Queen Mary and annoy the heck out of me.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

LoL! I know what you mean, I think about that, too. You got some great shots, tho, well worth the work =)

Windmills are so cool. It almost looks like the stand is wood? Thanks for doing the legwork to bring this to us : )

Teresa said...

These are great pictures! I hate that my windmill is surrounded by all kinds of stuff that get in the way of taking pictures.

Jan said...

Love the angle of your shot. I go thru the same things to get photos. I've given up thinking about what others are wondering.

Beth said...

Sharon said...

Oh, I love windmills. I would to have one here on the farm. I an sorry for your loss of Lily. We also lost a newborn calf one time. It is so sad for us, because we love all our animals.

Gorgeous shots of the windmill, Candy! I wish we had them around here.

Always love seeing complete windmills in good working order. Most around here have fallen into disrepair or have been vandalized.

Kateri said...

oh, yes! I love old wind mills, too. There is one I pass quite frequently--but I would have to to tresspass to get a decent photo of it--and even though it looks like it is on abandonded land, I'm too sure I want to do that. :) Love your photos1

Nice!

Great windmill. I love it! I sometimes get tickled when I stop to take a picture and get funny looks! :-) Especially when I am photographing something many people take for granted because they see it every day! Learning to appreciate all the joys in this world is always fun!
