    Yep it's a water tower. In my younger days(I say it as if I'm old) one night my cousin and I were asked by some older kids at the local hangout spot for the weird kids(we were of few in Mississippi then) if we had ever been to the "Doorknob to the Universe". of course we had no idea what the hell they were talking about and we were game just to be cool. They agreed to take us but on one condition- we had to be blind folded. We agreed easily. So they blindfolded us and then took us on a 20 minute ride( It seemed MUCH longer). We finally arrived and are helped from the car and positioned just so. They told us to look up and then they removed the blind folds. :shock: Thus behold the photo you have before you. It was night and we were flooded with good joss- so it just completely blew us away. The great thing was that the tower was only about 2mins from where we originally started. I don't know how many folks we ended up doing this to after the fact- and each time we got the same reaction as we had. Ah the good ole days. :D

    BTW this is the same tower as well.

    That's an awesome picture. at first glance i thought it was a big bowl-like depression with a narrowing semi-circular canal coming into it. LOL

    Try looking at it like i did at first. If you can't see it try this, the narrowing canal is deeper at the top (where it's wider) and shallower where it meets the very bottom of the bowl.
