Wild Horse Wind Farm continued

Here is a couple of other images from the Wild Horse wind farm from my evolving series on clean energy solutions printed with alternative process.

The wind farm has about 150 turbines that can generate about 275-megawatts of power which is enough to power about 80,000 homes. Each tower stands 221 feet tall and weigh 104 tons. The total height with blades is over 330 feet tall and tops the scales at around 223 tons.  The turbine blades are 129 feet long and the diameter of a completed turbine exceeds the wingspan of a Boeing 747. The turbines are able to operate in winds a low as 9 mph and as high as 56 mph.

The farm is located in central Washington along the Colombia River about 15 miles east of Ellensburg on top of the Wiskey Dick Mountain.

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
