I like this one! It looks like a much more familiar concrete silo, if a little misplaced among the trees, but the way it's broken vertically is really interesting. I love that curved shadow along the inside.
Thanks, Ryan. I'd spotted this as a late-morning shot and finally got there at the right time.
It's interesting to see how nature takes over once farms are abandoned. As further illustration, here's one I wasn't going to post, but why not do it? In a few years I suppose the remains of both silos will be engulfed by forest!
Well... if this one is the same "silo", I think there is no "view from upstairs"... he he.
But I'm afraid it is a bit too late to turn this silo into a guest cottage!
While I was doing some research at the Door County Advocate Newspaper, I came across an article from around August 1951 that reported how this silo had split in two after a passing jet caused a sonic boom. If you're at least 40 years old, you probably remember those magnificent earth-shattering booms. They were pretty cool but obviously caused some damage - lol. Thanks for posting the photo! Phil
Thanks so much, Phil, for the fascinating information. Sure, I remember the days of sonic booms. My parents and I came to Ephraim sometime that summer to visit my grandparents, but of course I don't remember anything about the silo splitting. Marilyn
