Giants in their field.

On our way back from visiting my wife’s parents (who by the way are awesome) we passed these windmills. From a distance they look quite small. As we got closer I found them to be deceivingly large and I mean large. And, no I did not put the electric pole into the photo. This is just how big they truly are. I spent several hours shooting them. My wife, bless her heart was just as interested in them as I was, in fact she insisted that we get up close and personal with them. We got right up against them later that day and all I can say is damn… Enjoy.

    I love how the telephone poles look like toothpicks. The view from right underneath is intense!
