Rural landscapes: the kingdom of turbines
ROAD TO THE TURBINES, NEAR FORT MACLEOD, ALBERTA
The windy prairie landscape of southern Alberta is home to many hundreds of turbines. Lots of people don’t care for them, but I find them to be a fascinating photo subject (here’s another picture of turbines from the same general region: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-qE). In this scene, they play a supporting role to the dramatic light and shadows of a spring evening.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, possibly a graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.

Nice shot of the wind farm, the fence set it off nicely I think.
