I don't remember why I did this?

I have some color images from 2009 at Pawnee Buttes.  Don't know why I ended up scanning/processing the images this way.....Also can't remember the exact setting for this effect (Posterized?).  I've done it before, also accidentally.

So I never posted these either.  But they are enjoy!

A Stormy Day at Pawnee Buttes

It was a stormy and brooding day in 2009 when we first visited Pawnee Buttes and became fascinated with the Wind Farm:

On this day, the 'old school' windmill way really spinning............

Going Old School: Windmills for Water

A common site in the west....Windmills pumping water out of wells for livestock.  There were two 'old school' windmills near the Buttes:

Windmill #1....Overlooking the Buttes.

 Windmill #2, with details below.

Ending with a reflection.......

The View From Pawnee Buttes

This is the usual view, from Pawnee Buttes.  But we later found a road that drives right through the windmills (our first image posted yesterday).

The light was very flat.....lots of haze from western wildfires (many in Colorado).

Remember the Price of Freedom.......

Have Fireworks and Joy on this 4th of July.  But also remember the Price of Freedom.....

From 'Daylgight Again'  Crosby. Stills and Nash........
Do we find the cost of freedom
Buried in the ground
Mother Earth will swallow you
Lay your body down
