Fun with Photoshop: Desaturated with darkened sky, a real quick-and-dirty job. More fun with Photoshop: I upped the saturation to give it more color. This is your basic snapshot of the picturesque shack - great texture even without manipulation.

Mud and the Wichita Mountains. Oklahoma's Wichita Mountains on a gray day. Shattuck, Oklahoma, has a wonderful Windmill Museum, where you can see and hear many of the windmills spin. I find it peaceful.

An interesting angle on Shattuck's windmills. The huge Railroad Eclipse is the jewel of Shattuck's Windmill Museum. A re-created sod house at the windmill museum.
