Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/FORE!

Oh, the joy of an unexpected photo opportunity, and having your camera with you when you stumble upon it. The road was busy, speed limit 45 mph, and somehow a weather vane caught my eye as I drove by a home. It perched on the top of a backyard shed, depicting a golfer in mid-swing. Amazing! I drove a bit further down the road, turned off as soon as I had a chance, and back-tracked. I had my camera ready for a quick shot out the window. I was lucky again and no cars were behind me. I was able to stop, focus in, and take a decent photo for this week’s Weather Vane Wednesday. The location is somewhere betwixt and between Blackwood and Washington Township, New Jersey.

Many thanks to those who took part in the August 14th challenge. Take a look at their weather vane posts from last week:

The 59 Club/Savannah Winds

The Photo Challenge: Each Wednesday, I post a photograph of a Weather Vane with a short description of where it can be found and any history connected to it. The main focus of the challenge is the photo of the Weather Vane and the location. The challenge can be Wordless if that is what you choose. If you would like others to see your post leave a link to your blog in the comment box. You can also tag the post #weathervaneweds. If you place a link to my post in your post you will create a pingback that will appear in the comment section. The challenge is open all week for comments and posts. Thanks so much for taking part in my challenge.

      Hi Susie, I really enjoyed finding this one while I was out yesterday. I think the modern-day variety are probably mass produced. I don’t know the type of metal used. I will have to look it up for next week’s post. Thanks for the good idea. I would assume the ones made in bygone years were forged. Kathy

  1. I have seen only one weather vane so far, and it was on the roof of a barn. I couldn’t get a decent picture of it, as it was in the middle of a field with no access. When I took a picture of it from the car window, it was just a blurry little line. I noticed that there are many windmills on the prairies for pumping water out of the ground, and other uses. Some have tails that I suspect act as a weather vane indicating the direction and force of the wind. I may do a post someday of the variety of windmills on the Saskatchewan prairies.
