Photographer's Note

This is another shot from my road trip to Minnesota to pick up a Munchkin cat that I had chosen to adopt. The first day wasn't too bad, but it was cold. The morning this was shot was much colder, but me and my intrepid wiener cat were undaunted. I would jump out and grab photos while she basked in the warm car. This wind farm is one of the spots we photographed before we drove into the blizzard (that's another story.) It was so cold I had ice crystals in my beard within minutes. These wind mill generators are huge. Fortunately, this truck was driving near the closer wind mill to give you a full idea of how huge they are. I counted over fifty before I got sick of sorting them out.

This farm is north of a city named Dexter south of I90.

This shot was taken with my "Texas Leica." I processed the film in Diafine. The negative was a bit thinner than I normally would like. Supposedly the red filter lowers the exposure by 3 stops, but I suspect it is 4 stops with the diafine/tri-x combo which is normally asa 1000. Then again, the snow may have been thinner due to the bluish hue that snow seems to have when in shadow. However, I like the vagueness the thinness of the film imparted blurring the line snow and desert. Let me know what you think.
