Wednesday Night Windmills

It’s likely I spend too much time and effort zeroing in on windmills, but they’re such rich subject matter.  Most of them, unless they’re beat up, missing blades, etc, look pretty much alike, but like skyscrapers in cities, it’s what you include with them.    For instance, consider this evening.   The Texas sky was incredible, even for Texas.   Add a pickup truck or two on a dirt road, kicking up the prairie dust, and it all seems to come together.   The first three are the same windmill.   The fourth is one I’ve photographed quite a few times, but each time it takes on a different persona.    Windmills, like their neighbors, grain elevators, are country skyscrapers.
