West Texas Economy

This image is a composite of two slides sandwiched together and scanned. The clouds and sky were taken in New Mexico and the pump jack in West Texas. I was looking at slides on my light table and these two happened to overlay one another. I liked the way they looked so I had them scanned and after a few minor adjustments in PS here is the finished product.
