Wind - October 16, 2013

The original photo for this digitally manipulated photo composition comes from a wind farm in North Dakota. North Dakota produces a significant parts of its energy from wind (despite the recent oil boom). When I got back to the computer after a day of shooting I started to think about how I could use this or one of its sister images to suggest the movement of air in a way that was unconventional (e.g., showing something beyond just the of the wind turbines blades).  The more I played with this photo in my digital darkroom, the less conventional and more whimsical the image became until I eventually created what you see above.  I call this photo”Wind” and hope you will  enjoy this as my entry in the Word a Week Photo Challenge – Wind.”


The Word A Week Challenge – Favorite is indeed a challenge because what my favorite photo is changes from time to time. Paralyzed by indecision, I finally decided to post several of my favorites, which as you will see comprise quite an eclectic group.

I guess it is not too surprising that when hills poke above the plain, they catch a lot of wind. North Dakota is a major supplier of wind power-based electricity. Wind farms dot the countryside.

Today’s wind turbine is not the wind mill of the past.
