I've photographed this old windpump so often, under so many different conditions, that I feel it's almost a member of the family. It's a natural subject since it sits right out in front of the house.
I love these old Aermotors and I hate to see the new trend of replacing them with solar-powered pumps. Progress, I guess. That's what they call it anyway.
This was taken just before our present snowfall, right as dusk was lengthening the shadows and giving that last burst of pure, concentrated light.
