Siphon, swell, draft, draw, elevate… pump.
Silhouetted against a brilliant blue sky with tufts of cumulus clouds floating by lazily, a vintage Aeromotor windmill no longer pumps water on this wheat farm in the Palouse region of southeastern Washington state. Whenever I travel around eastern Washington, I enjoy finding and photographing these faithful workhorses of past technology. But they are slowly fading from view with the long advent of electric pumping equipment now drawing the life giving water out of the land.
Thanks for joining me today, for the view that is right here! ~ Madge
