Windmills & Other Things

I have this thing about windmills. I'm not sure what it is exactly, but I'm drawn to them. I think there is something peaceful and comforting about them. We have a storm rolling in, maybe a prelude to what's to come. Courtesy of Mr. Gustav.



We took a drive out to my favorite park, and since girly wasn't cooperating...I decided to focus on the windmill.



I've been trying desperately to get a decent silhoutte shot, and this is about as good as it gets. And that's not saying a lot. ;) If your reading this Becky, I'm sure you could totally blow me away with your crazy outdoors shots. I'm sure you could get a windmill with like, lightning bolts going through it.

Crackhead. Becky likes to stand in her garage during vicious storms and photograph lighting. Okay enough picking on Becky. I'm just jealous she has the cajones to go out in a storm and take pictures. I'm afraid my camera will spontaneously combust or something.

Need to hit the books now...

You're cracking me up here. I feel special that I was mentioned in your blog :) If it hadn't been raining I would have gone in the desert to take better pics. Next time I suppose.

I like windmills too! They remind me of walking on the farm with my grandad or riding on his tractor. They make me feel warm and fuzzy...
