Water is a scares resource in country Australia. We seem to have more than our fair share of wind mills, and this one was capture near Manilla in autumn last year. The sunflowers are self planted.
Taken at 1/40th f16.0 and ISO-200

Windmills were a major reason for the development of Texas and a favorite for me to photograph when I spot an interesting scene. Love the foreground flowers. Outstanding John.

Love your POV and composition on this one, John! Most everyone had a wind mill here at one time but most are gone now or inoperative. There's one down the road that has morning-glory growing all the way to the top. Kinda neat when in bloom.
