Sorry for reposting this image.
Some of the fins were not masked in very well and it was driving me crazy.
This version fixed the fins. In the original image there are only 3 fins on the Wind Mill. This is a composit image that includes layers from 6 images. The bottom fin is too closely aligned with the post, thus hiding it, but it took me quite awhile just to get it this close. So it's staying. :)

I have passed by these huge Wind Mills all over the Southwest of these Uninted States and I always regret not stopping and taking a few snappies. So on the way back from the Third Coast this last Weekend I knew I had to get out and do what I do. This image was taken with my Tokino 16-28mm wide angle, so I had to get in real close to get this. Point? I had to run across this field about 1/4 mile in the baking sun, snap these images and run back before Farmer Bob noticed me and grabbed Jed, his peace maker and his best Sunday-go-to-meetin' teeth and trucked out to shoot me. I was already sporting the best Sun Burn I've had in years from the 4 day coastal excursion, so this was just what my Apache Red face needed.
All worth it of course. Hope you like the image.

    As long as you're having fun with it, why not paint the thing and make it look like a flower? I "see" yellow petals with a black center.

    Yeah, we do lose depth perception with these things. They don't look as big as they really are. I've heard that the housing at top of the pole is about as big as a small house.

    I live near Amarillo, and I have a list of photos that I want to take around the area...I'm just waiting for a "good sky day" to take some windmill pictures. This is an excellent idea -- it turned out great!
