Great capture, Tim. I would have loved to see all of these in motion in that storm. Since I really like the windmills, I am putting the museum on my bucket list! Congratulations on the AC and World View! (You don't happen to have a GIF file of this?)

Nice shot Tim. It's good that you're getting some rain. It's been fairly wet here in the Dallas area. Hopefully this summer won't be a repeat of last year.

This is a wonderful shot. I'd guess the experts would say to have more space in front of the windmills rather than behind them. Regardless, this is an instant classic. Super congrats.

I wonder if this is HD. Am I using the correct term? If so, I must try it. Those clouds are magnificent.

About docshovel39

docshovel39

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . I got involved with photography because of my older brother Steve - a fantastic photographer who lives outside of Seattle , WA . My favorite work , apart from his , is a terrific book entitled " Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , much of it shot in black and white . I also have become a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thank you for your comments and have a GREAT day !
