      Thanks.

      Yeah - it's stuck on its own in a field next to a track off a minor highway.

      Thanks for the comments and faves. And for the encouragement. (I'd love to take more pictures of these elevators but we have a baby due in the new year so I doubt I'll be making many road trips...)

      This solitary soul of the prairies - sad and poetic yes, and in this photo you have made it special, with its head in gorgeous clouds.
