Auger

An old auger in the sage brush.

An auger is a rotating, screw-type device that moves material through a cylinder. This was either attached to a harvester and threw grain into a truck or it was attached to a truck and threw silage into a feed trough.

i like the brush and dried grasses here. very earthy. ~S.
John Eagle: The earth is trying very hard to take back the land and is quite successful at it. I love the smell of the sage brush. Seeing it brings that smell back to mind.

Thanks

Like a peri-scope in an old movie about alien invasion. This is an excellent shot. I now know what sage brush looks like.

If all these implements (your different posts) are on one farm the guy must be sitting on a wealth in scrap metal.
John Eagle: Yup, like a peri-scope. Standing vigilant waiting, watching for the saucers to come. Funny my brother and I use to play cowboy and indians, war games and alien invasion games in and around the farm equipment. Amazing how easy it is to turn a piece of farm equpiment into a rocket ship as a kid. The sage brush also makes for great games of hide and seek.

He is sitting on a wealth of scrap metal. Actually he could get top dallor by selling fixtures and old bits and pieces of stuff to the neuvo antique shops that have cropped up in most cities.

Your dad's farm is like a different world altogether, John. And the day you took these pics has a mood that is so suitable for what you're showing. I can just imagine what it must have been like growing up here! Another great shot!
