Standing Proud

So I thought I'd add a seventh image and make this a whole week's worth of photos taken from the same viewpoint... hope the (unexpected?) colour doesn't freak you out ;-))

Colour or not - it's still BoB!
It looks very majestic.

Very majestic and love that dramatic sky.

And they look so small from a distance :) they are huge...
January 23rd, 2019  
Wonderful series color and all
January 23rd, 2019  
Fan-bloody-tastic, mate (pun intended). That lighting is just wow.

Love the composition! Makes the windmill so graceful and powerful at the same time. That dark sky makes a great background.

@golftragic Thanks Marnie for your support this week... I've enjoyed doing something a bit different.
January 24th, 2019  
Wonderful lighting!
January 24th, 2019  
Great composition and capture of light

@vignouse As you probably know I have a predilection for these kinds of subjects and that kind of processing. Tick, tick.

So elegantly captured.

so funny for a moment (just a minuscule moment) I thought - oh look someone else took a photo of a wind turbine ... the colour did trick me. those clouds have been so lowering too - another beauty!
January 24th, 2019  
I actually love the dark sky! FAVtastic capture :)
January 24th, 2019  
Classic...Mean, Moody and Magnificent! Take a well deserved bow for this spectacular mini-series.
January 24th, 2019  
Oh the drama, nicely done
January 24th, 2019  
Nicely captured against the moody sky.
January 24th, 2019  
dramatic shot with that sky - why choose colour here? Not that I don't like it, but you don't usually

(although I know far too much about wind turbine gear boxes and I can see one here)
January 24th, 2019  
Fantastic capture and your caption is perfect.
January 24th, 2019  
@shannejw Unusually, it didn't work for me in B&W - there aren't enough tonal contrasts in the image so it became pretty much mono-tonal grey and white and lacked impact.
January 24th, 2019  
@shannejw Oh, btw, how do you know so much about wind-turbine gearboxes?
January 24th, 2019  
Daughter is a mechanical engineer and for one of her interviews, for a company heavily involved in wind turbine technology, she had to prepare a presentation on wind-turbine gear boxes failure - which I helped her practise.

@shannejw I do know that they use double helical gears which were invented by André Citroën - he of car fame - which accounts for the double chevron which is the logo of the marque.

Surprised to see this one in colour but somehow it adds to the drama
January 24th, 2019  
Terrific shot :)
January 24th, 2019  
The sunlight has provided exceptional highlighting on your subject. That moody sky gave the image a strong backdrop.
January 24th, 2019  
Great pov and capture. Fav!! 😀
January 24th, 2019  
Wonderful capture, fav.
January 24th, 2019  
A neat shot. It shows how big the turbine is. The clouds in the background and sun shining toward the turbine make for some dramatic lighting.
January 25th, 2019  
Super capture of the wind turbine blades. I have seen them being hauled down the highway and each blade is huge. You captured this really well. I think the color looks really good for this.
