Beyond the BackyardCircle B Bar Reserve

Watchin’ the Wheel Go Round

I made this image of the windmill at the Circle B Bar Reserve back in October. I had gone to look for the Snail Kite, and after the sun set, the light levels dropped quickly. As I walked back to my car I looked back and saw the windmill starting to whirl in the breeze. I made a few images using slow shutter speeds, and this one came out just right, with the motion of the wheel blurred but the foreground in focus.
