Wind Turbines, Ridge, Clouds

Altamont Pass, CA

A bit late on the post today as I’m settling back in after arriving back home after 8 days away for the Thanksgiving holidays.  Yesterday (Thursday), was a very windy day all throughout California.  Reports of winds hitting 101 mph, schools being closed in some Southern California cities and even power outages.  In fact, I was stuck in traffic as all the traffic signals in Alhambra were off.

Anyhow, in deference to the mighty wind gods, I’ll post another photograph from the Altamont Pass that connects the cities of Tracy and Livermore.  This was taken towards the end of the shooting day but before the “Wind Turbines, Sunset Clouds” photograph.  Besides my penchants for taking sunset photos with silhouettes, this one has the added bonus the dark clouds mirroring the shape of the ridge but having a gap between the two elements to provide backlit sunlight for the wind turbines.

EXIF data: Nikon D50, patterned metering mode, 55mm, ISO 200, 1/500 sec, f/11
