Rural landscapes: channelling the western wind


I’ve discovered, over the years, that many people detest wind turbines. Well, they still make for great photo subjects, especially with an epic sky and the last light of a winter day. The key here was exposure speed; I wanted to show you the motion of the blades, but not have them simply disappear in a too-long exposure. This picture was made with 1/3 of a second exposure.
