Justiceburg, Texas

31 Dec

Situated atop the mesas south of Justiceburg, Texas in Garza County along the Lubbock Highway are large electricty-generating windmills.   This area is the caprock escarpment of the Llano Estacado. 

In May, my husband and I took a trip to Slaton and Post.   We drove along Highway 84 for some time and fell upon what remains of Justiceburg.   Further South along the route, are these gorgeous windmills.

    I do love Post Texas and made every opportunity to drive through it when working in Lubbock. My husband has roots there so it is even more special.

    Beautifully done, nicely balanced photo and good use of light and contrast.

    Excellent composition. I don’t think that there could’ve been a more perfect balance of the elements in this photo. Wish I could make it out that way more, but it’s quite a drive from Houston. =)

    I haven’t been to Lubbock in 30 years or more. I worked there right before I married my ex. I would love to take a trip and see all the towns in between. I just love the windmills!
    Happy New Year!
