Judith Gap Wind Farm
I'm working on a final project out at the Judith Gap Wind Farm. I had never been out there before and I've always wanted to see these giant wind mills. Even though I'm shooting my final in black and white with a 4x5, I took along my digital camera too. I had planned to go Saturday or Sunday, but it sounded like the weather was going to get worse. So, I went late Friday afternoon and it was pretty cloudy, but I think I like the effect. I was able to get permission to be on the land, so I could get pretty close. It was a pretty eerie feeling. I kind of like the images with the sun being diffused by the clouds. The one with the person in it is my husband standing and looking up at one of the turbines. I only wish the blade was above the sun instead of going right through it. I should have shot it again. Here are a few shots I like. What do you think?
