Front Row Seat

It was a gorgeous night to shoot the partial solar eclipse! For the first time in what seems like about a year, everything came together perfectly for this shot as I had planned it. I knew the northwest winds would have this windmill oriented such that it was "looking" at the sunset, and I even managed to not screw up the actual sunset location. Was only off by about a half of a degree! Typically I don't like to have man-made objects in most of my shots, but for whatever reason I absolutely love these huge wind turbines. They made for an incredible foreground!
