There is an experimental tree farm run by the forestry service in our town and it has wonderfully peaceful trails and paths to wander. Many bring there dogs here for walks. I have always found this irrigation shutoff valve an interesting subject.
For those wondering. They do genetic reserch on different varieties of forest trees to study their resistance to natural pests. I think :O

Anyway here's the subject. Steel dilapidates slowly, I hope this qualifies.

SMAC,

With all the recent controversy this may not qualify as dilapidated. Its still in use - at least it appears to be so.

The detail in the shot is impeccable. I like the added touch of the leaves. Very nice photo.

Aloha

Ah, good point. It probably is still in use. But, thanks for the compliment anyway.
Cheers,
Steve
