Altamont Pass (CA), Turbines, Clouds, High Contrast, Monochrome

ISO200, 38mm, f/8, 1/100 sec
Altamont Pass, Livermore, CA

The wind turbines at Altamont Pass are a sight to behold even if the wind is absent.  These structures, old and new, are sentinels watching over the hills.

Once again, the post processing is through Nik Silver EFex Pro 2 with the intention of creating a high contrast photograph to invoke a mood, primarily a sense of gloom and doom.  The fence line towards the bottom of the composition is intentionally dark, giving just a glimpse of the metal T-posts when it catches light off the sun.  The clouds have been reduced to the point where they appear as smoke trails appearing from the right, off image.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center weighted metering mode, ISO 200, 38mm, f/8, 1/100 sec
