For when the rains don’t come


So, we were driving along this farm to market road, when my spouse suddenly slowed down and made a u-turn. Those maneuvers are generally so I can make a photograph, but I hadn’t noticed anything particularly photogenic.

The reason for the u-turn was because he’d seen a big crescent wrench in the road and went back to get it. For highway-safety reasons, we will assume. Anyway, while we were doing that, I noticed this scene, and the way the weeds around the pump played off the clouds and the center-pivot irrigation system on the horizon. I’m glad for the wayward wrench.

  1. Great photo, and I would turn around for the wrench too. 🙂


    • I understand that there’s no such thing as “too many wrenches.” Just like “too many photographs” doesn’t exist.

      • Tool boxes are a lot cheaper than hard drives, so there is that to consider as well.

        Not to mention being able to be a good Samaritan and volunteer highway safety patrolista (google spell check insists patroller is not a word, so I might as well make one up). Photographer’s u-turns and rapid braking without warning don’t do much positive for highway safety.


  2. Nice image! Being from Tennessee it needs more trees and hills.LOL. I’m so glad I found this site. Keep “shooting ” and making our day. True- never enough wrenches,sockets and such even if you don’t need them.


  3. It’s really beautiful, Melinda.
