Windfarm Sentinels

Windfarm Sentinels

I usually shoot the wind turbines at sunrise for the sheer clean silhouettes and peaceful sparseness against the first light of day. However, once in awhile it can be a thrill to race around the hills chasing the setting sun for just the right frame up. On this particular evening the golden hour was throwing nice light on the turbines and hills, so I was happy as can be.
You must know they would not have placed these wind projects here without cause, this place is constantly blowing with gusts up to 35mph. It makes the shooting very interesting at times.
