Few &  Far Between
Jan. 9th 2008 Mike Stobbs

Few & Far Between

Pond Mills are almost a thing of the past here also.
You could see them all over the country in dug outs. They were used to
aerate ponds and also help keep them open in the winter.
While this one no longer in a dug out spins out of control near one.
The shaft that once had a car fan on it to aerate the water is disconnected and bent.
I have been waiting for days for the wind to pick up to get this image.

Pure prairie! I haven't seen one of these actually spinning in a long time.

I knew straight away where this image was taken just by the thumbnail. I think we spent too much time on the back roads – Naw.
Fantastic capture of motion.

Patience definitely paid off for this image Mike. Great motion!

Nice image Mike. Patience pays off :-) We had plenty of wind - check out my image today If you got these winds you're lucky this didn't get airborne.
