The Windmills Near Lafayette, Indiana

Early on in my photographic learning process I spent a lot of time out at the windmills. I called them my mountains as they are the one big feature on the landscape here. My focus has really shifted towards sports lately, but every now and then I get back out to the windmills. I try and frame them a bit differently now though with something in the foreground to grab your attention. I saw this old tractor out in the field, and I thought that it gave wind farming a new look.

What is Landscape Photography?

As I said above I used to make many more landscape photos than anything else. Here we are in May, and I have twelve photos in my landscape folder. That would have been unheard of in 2011 or 2012. As I said before though sports has really taken up my time lately, and the landscapes have taken a backseat. A few trips during the summer should add to the folder, but I need to get out and photograph a few more scenes around me.
