One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—The Windmills Of Your Mind

The expansive plains of Oklahoma are dotted with seemingly countless wind farms that are home to rows of huge windmills.  A single blade is more than 150 feet in length.  I took some shots from the van as we traveled to our next potential storm center on a bright sunny Wednesday with some puffy clouds.  Before we left Oklahoma and entered the  Texas panhandle, we stopped at an abandoned farm house to explore photo opportunities.  I was captivated by the aging windmill, such a contrast to the sleek modern ones I’d photographed earlier.  It still worked but the blades creaked and groaned as they turned in the afternoon breeze.
