Moment in Time #1 ~ Wind Farm, Oklahoma

6-16-2012, 2:17 p.m.  Stopped for road construction, somewhere in Western Oklahoma


"This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down."
J.R.R. Tolkien

  1. I love J.R.R. Tolkien's way with words. Great quote and amazing capture of those metal giants. xo

    Perfectly matched words with picture.

  13. Some people hate them and some love them. It certainly makes for a striking photo. Well done on the edit! :)

  14. Nicely done. The texture is subtle but adds a quiet beauty to the wind turbines. We have a bunch of these where I live that dot the hillsides.

  15. Hi Terri, I love this photo it looks like a watercolor :)
    I am back from my trip and I had a wonderful time. Lots of family fun with my two granddaughters, and although my daughter had her head buried in her books most of the time, we did have some great time to visit, too. When I left she was caught up with all her studies and feeling fresh and ready to take on the world, again. God blessed us all in many wonderful ways, this week. Thank you for your sweet comment, you're a good friend.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  20. I just love the sound of these.
    This is a beautiful photograph!

  21. I am in agreement with the other comments about the texture on your photo. Very nice. Michigan is getting a lot of these wind farms. They sort of hypnotize you if you look at them very long. It is fun to turn on classical music and watch them turn.

  26. When we were on the way out west in Sept of 2012, we past some huge trucks carrying those big wind turbines (in pieces)... Amazing how HUGE they were (even in pieces)...
    Hugs,

  27. It is a lovely picture Terri! We have a farmer down the road from us that put a smaller version of one of those up and it is way up on a hill. I love going by and seeing it there. I am with the others in saying the texture is lovely!

  28. I love the way you captured this! It looks like the perfect place for a wind farm. The openness of the view makes me feel like taking a deep breath.
