Awesome capture, Tim! I can't do justice to these scenes. Your images speak so eloquently and beautifully. I LOVE your caption. Alas it IS the WEST Texas icon! I'm perversely proud of that for you and for us here in the OK Panhandle, who share your "state" flower! 10!

Great shot as usual, Tim !
Love the sky - it looks windswept, too - so it`s in complete harmony with the tumbleweed.

Thanks Trudy and Mark for the comments ! I'm not quite sure why the empty hydraulic fluid jugs end up on the fence posts . I guess I'll have to start farming to figure that one out :)

Love tumbleweeds..great shot. Like the video, I have seen this happen so many times when I lived in West Texas. A couple of years ago, I even used them to decorate with at Christmas time!

Great shot as usual Tim. I've seen these things come rolling across I-40 once while going through Amarillo. I'm curious about the jugs sitting atop the fence posts.

Thanks Eileen and Delana for the comments ! And thanks Delana for the video link ! That is too funny ! Sounds like they should make a Nintendo game for kids about crushing tumbleweeds . I also heard the artist Jewel singing in the background - future music video possibly ?!? Thanks for the comments :)

Love this, and haven't seen any tumbleweeds other
than in pictures. I thought I'd look that up and
see if any on youtube. Wonder what a fence would
look like with all these. And, its so funny to
listen to those kids laughing.

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . I got involved with photography because of my older brother Steve - a fantastic photographer who lives outside of Seattle , WA . My favorite work , apart from his , is a terrific book entitled " Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , much of it shot in black and white . I also have become a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thank you for your comments and have a GREAT day !
