Kansas Windmills

Evening + Sunset Landscapes| Pratt, KS

 

I recently was interested in finding local spots to take pictures, not only for clients but for just the plain beauty of Kansas Landscapes. It was one evening that I decided to drive around and spotted the perfect spot, a drive up to a windmill. The sky was lovely and I loved the lighting. So I set up shop and snapped away trying to get just the right composition and settings. This is a definite starting block for me. As for painting inspiration I will be creating more of these pictures in the future.

It didn't occur to me until today that I had two photo shoots of windmills, a sort of before and after. That was not my intent. I actually just happened to be bored one evening, the Royals had a late game, and so I went for a drive. I drove past the lake thinking I'll just go and see where this road takes me. I had driven down it before but stopped one payment ended. It was this evening that I realized the road would take me to the windmills. So that's where I went. It was close to sunset so I drove till I had the sun behind the windmill. I had never been this close to one before. I was at the drive that led straight to it. The evening was so quiet and peaceful I could actually hear the windmills moving. I did have trouble getting a composition that I liked. They are not exactly the easiest thing to shoot, you know they are quite tall and they move. There were actually windmills behind me which got me thinking I could take sunrise photos here as well. I know I will be back because I want to play around more getting the settings and lighting just the way I like them.

Let me know your thoughts or if you have other ideas of what I can take pictures of for another photo shoot.
