Rural landscapes: the windy autumn sky

WIND TURBINES, HAY ROLLS AND ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRONT RANGE, PINCHER CREEK, ALBERTA

I know there are people who detest wind turbines, but I find them fascinating photo subjects, especially admidst the stunning landscapes of this western Canadian province.
The Pincher Creek region is one of the windiest places in Canada – so windy that I found some nestling deer using hay rolls as a wind break – so I had to use a fairly fast shutter speed to stop the motion of this turbine.
There was lots of blue and gold-brown in the scene, but I also knew it would look stunning in black-and-white. So that’s how I’m presenting it to you.
