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.
