Reaping the wild wind…

Yesterday morning I took a drive up to the hills above Barnstaple, which give views of both the River Taw valley below and Fullabrook Down wind farm at the top.

I went up there initially to capture some black and white landscape shots for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge on Diary of an Internet Nobody, but the views were so spectacular that I stayed to do some experimenting with long exposures of the turbines. 

On the way back down the hill, I stopped to grab a few shots of the wooded river valley, lit by the low autumn sun…

Oh, by the way, that post title..? That’s just a reason to include this ’80s classic. 

Enjoy.
