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. #10716181

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.
