Blowing in the Wind

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Today we go way back to March when I stumbled on a worn down park shelter.  It was a windy day, as you can see by the rope blowing in the wind.  To get some shots of this door I had to prop it open so it wouldn’t move on me.   This is one of my first shots I’ve done to show natural motion within the scene.  Sometime I forget that it is alright to have things moving in your frame.  It gives a whole new layer to the photograph that adds more interest.  It can help to put the viewer right there in the moment of the shot.


Power Silhouettes

Today’s post is of a couple reprocessed images I took while on my internship.  We were doing this because of the construction of a wind turbine field with over 100 new turbines in it.  I was put in charge of taking a measuring pole and touching over one hundred power lines.  Then I was to record the height of every single one that crossed a road.  Each line had to be measured to make sure the trucks bringing in the new energy producer would fit underneath them.  It was actually a really peaceful week being in the middle of nowhere.  The area was 36 square miles, mostly on country gravel roads.  I rarely ran into anyone; it was just me, the buzzing power lines, and my radio.  Oh!  And of course my camera.  One day when I was done, I came across the edge of another wind turbine field.  So naturally I had to get some shots of these mammoth machines.  These two are the best of the bunch I believe.  Honestly, I couldn’t decide which one I liked better.  I like pieces of both.  So I’ll let you decide for me.
