Dit is seker een van die mooiste windpompfotos wat ek in my lewe gesien het.   :thumleft:

Nou ja toe. Wilddogs het regtig 'n onderwerp oor alles! BigDom hiers hy.

Fotojoernalis Willem van der Berg het 'n ruk terug 'n artikel geskryf oor 'n "alternatiewe" boer
en by my aangekom omdat hy toe reken ek kwalifiseer. Fotos met komplimente van Willem van der Berg.

Hahaha. Ja. This is my OCD taking over. I want all the pumps on the farm to be in tip-top
condition. A tall order, believe me! There are 43 of 'em and they've been neglected for the
last 30 years. From some tiny 6 ft Aermotors, lots and lots of 8-10 ft Climax's and a couple
of 12ft Climax's with the oldest and supreme unit being a 12ft Aermotor. It has the longest
stroke of any on the farm and pulls a 6 inch cylinder on a light breeze. When the wind picks
up it produce water like a electric pump. Not a squeak. Stunning to see.

This area on the farm is known as "Drie Pompe" for obvious reasons. The water from the pumps accumulates in
a reservoir next to them and in turn the water runs down under gravity to be used for irrigation of fields. I took these
pictures one afternoon while an a walk shortly before getting caught out by a little thunder storm. I imagine this is what
it might look like if the Abrahamic God comes to earth.

The pump on the right side is the 12ft Aermotor I mentioned. First one to be erected on the farm. Probably like almost a century ago.

Waar is hierdie plek wat oom Harry ge-post het? (Ek praat van die padstal met die Karoo Roos windpomp boontoe op hierdie page)

Not a real windpomp picture, but a picture from one of my best rides this year with some of my best mates.
