While on my way to Letchworth State Park in my previous post, I drove by some amazing landscapes where I just had to stop the car (on the side of the road) and enjoy the view. I got my camera out of the trunk, snapped a few photos, and was on my way in the car before you knew it. My wife will tell you otherwise though. 😉
That’s the beauty of a road trip: You’ll just never know what you’ll encounter on the roads! These views weren’t just of ordinary rolling hills though. They were trickled with windmills all over the landscape for as far as the eye can see. I wasn’t able to capture any up close, so you’ll have to live with these wide shots. But just imagine these towering over you with their sails whipping by you at great strengths. It’s awesome to say the least. Just try standing beneath Toronto’s lone windmill on the CNE grounds and you’ll know exactly what I mean.
Fortunately, the rain had stopped momentarily just so I can get out and take these photos.
In the photo above, if you look at the far horizon on the left hand side, you’ll see a line of windmills spread out sporadically.
We have some more windmills with rolling greenery, taken with my 70-200mm f/2.8 to get as close as I could get from the streets.
And finally, this photo above just tells it all: overcast clouds, windmills in the background, rolling greenery with autumn colours showing throughout, and a lone farmhouse nestled amongst the trees. It’s just beautiful!
Happy road trips everyone!
