Flickr a Day 177: ‘Windmill Farm in Mid-Michigan’

I don’t think much of modern, electricity-producing windmills. Surely there will be negative environmental effects on wildlife (eh, birds) and air currents (eke, weather), when solar is free energy if only we would take more of it. But I do think much of self-titled “Windmill Farm in Mid-Michigan”, which Mike Boening captured on July 4, 2014, using the Olympus E-M1 and M.Zuiko ED 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/9, ISO 200, 1/500 sec, 13mm.

Mike, who is based in Detroit, describes himself as a “shoot light and shoot often” photographer. “I organize and lead groups on street/urban photography with Discover Your World Photography Tours“. He adds: “I believe strongly in continuing to learn the art of street photography and am one of the select few working in The Arcanum“, which is an apprentice program.

I know. I know. There is nothing street about today’s selection, but the composition is just irresistible. If you’d like to experience Mike at his best, head on over to YouTube and check out Mirrorless Minutes, a bi-weekly video podcast that he cohosts. Or drop by his evocative photo website. He joined Flickr in December 2011.
