Wind and Water

  1. I love the detail on the windmill blades: the light catching the metal, and the red painted edges.

    • Thank you, Meanderer…it almost seems freshly painted.

  3. It does look freshly painted – the red is so vibrant! I can imagine someone wandering around during the night – armed with long ladder and brush – surreptitiously painting red bits on windmill blades 🙂

    • Wouldn’t that be something, Meanderer…someone wandering around doing that in the middle of the night! 🙂

  5. You manage to come up with the most beautiful photographs. That windmill stands out in its own right, yet compliments the background (which in and of itself, is gorgeous). 🙂

          • I think you and I just both really appreciate the artistry of Mother Earth. I am a sap for a beautiful landscape.

    What’s with the blades on the windmill? New? The incongruity is interesting. Of course, I love the landscape. It’s F.L.A.T. in lots of Texas. Where I live, there is not such phenomenon as water run-off. 🙂

    • I don’t know what’s up with the blades on the windmill…they do look so new. Meanderer thought that someone might have gone around at night with a long handled brush and painted them on the sly. It was probably the little man from my earlier post. I found him in the long grass not too far from the windmill. 🙂

      And no, George, from what I’ve seen of parts of Texas, I imagine there’s not enough water to “run” to begin with, and then nothing to cause it to move once it got on the ground. About a year or so ago, one of my sons was visiting in west Texas and took a photo standing on the side of the road. The image captured the yellow line of a highway extending out into infinity with not the slightest raise or change in elevation, whatsoever. Rather telling of the plane/plain geography of the region.
