Walking up to shoot I thought about what stood out about photographing the windmills last night. I usually just get excited and start clicking away. I did that last night too. Then I walked on down the road and started to think about what perspective might render a different interesting look. Get closer to the fence. Look through your lens Linda. What about the fence shot do you like. After many attempts I decided I liked focusing on the barbed wire loop. Then I thought….try putting the setting sun (in star burst mode, of course….because I can) and see how that looks. Well here you have it. Slowing down and looking. Asking myself questions about what caught my eye and why. I just need to do this more and more.
Since Jen and I shoot the sunset at the windmills off the I-10 Freeway often finding new ways to shoot here is always on our minds.
Jen walking back to the dirt road off the I-10 Freeway windmills to shoot a different shot.
Invariably my shots of Jen are always my favorite when I’m out shooting landscapes.
