Western Wisconsin Agricultural Museum

My Brother is an emeritus president of a local Antique Gas & Steam Engine Club here in Westby, Wisconsin.  As an active member, he has his hands in many facets of their activities now.  He is even set to be featured on the front page of the local paper from his activites during their event this past weekend!  I spent several afternoons and one evening on their new grounds ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the many engines popping and banging and smoking all about reminding me of childhood days emerging covered with soot and oil and wearing a smile a mile wide!  Their new buildings house several industrial steam engines from days of old and they even boast a working saw mill! There are several buildings filled with various antitque collections one may wile away many hours exploring.  

Several members of the group donated land which sits atop a ridge surrounded by fields and distant farmsteads. It is a truly lovely piece of land!  We watched the sun set from our cushy lawn chairs as the antique tractors put putted their way down the track!  A more spectacular sunset you simply could not ask for!  I will play around with my bracketed photos and see if I can do the scene any sort of justice.  Stay tuned for that!  For now, I give you this colorful photo I processed with Photomatix tone mapping and tweaked in Lightroom.  Enjoy!  

PS Remember to check out my SmugMug galleries for other photos, prints and whatnot.  Click on any photo in my blog and/or the 'gallery' tab on the menu bar.  Look around, buy a print, leave a comment, say hello!  We love to hear from you! :)
