Not really familiar with dowsers. But I do like the image with the angular stick and the stones standing in the dry landscape.
I met a well dowser who had a 98-99% record of accuracy who dowsed all of the wells in the neighborhood. He stayed in business as long as he lived and always recommended and worked for the most reputable well drillers in several neighboring counties. He told that he could detect water while flying over it he was that sensitive!
I’m a believer. When I was a kid in Oklahoma, there were water witchers who really could tell people where to dig a well. I don’t remember if they used the power for anything else, though.
Wow – that’s just wild. I’ve heard of dowsers, but have never seen one in action.
I grew up with stories of dowsers, but don’t have any personal experience with them. Cool pic, though.
That is a beautiful photo–poetic.

Great photo (and pun!). We don’t have too many dowsers where I live now, but they are very respected in some of the other places I’ve lived.
One of my uncles was a dowser and he was very accurate. I have “dowsed” for power lines and water lines myself – it’s so cool when the sticks move on their own.
I knew nothing about dowsers before clicking on this photo. Thanks for the lesson. Very interesting!
