    Great capture Tommy! I didn't know such a place existed - I initially thought this was in another country.

Beautiful warm lighting of Ha Ha. Got to get back down there again. Have they got the water tower repaired so one can go up into it?

If I hadn't read your description, I would have thought it to be from out West. A good cowboy western setting.
Wonderful Shot.
