Driving across Wyoming I saw the biggest wind turbines I'd ever seen. They were just... well the picture shows you. I had my polarization filter on, so they got to "pop" from the sky really well with that. I had to kill a ghost of the turbines because of the double glass in the filter, but not a problem with heal and clone.

Location: Wyoming.

I know, it's crazy how large they are. Very daunting. I felt like I was in the presence of a giant.

It is hard to get the true scale, but compared to some wind turbines here in germany they seem still small.

I've never gotten the chance to be up close, but I know for a fact that they are gargantuan!

Yeah, these made me think of giants. They gave me a very haunting ominous almost post apocalyptic feel.

Hey! Your tattoo is coming slowly. I've had a lot going on. I had to move my father from WA to PA, and that's accross the whole country. It's in the works, fear not. It'll get done, sorry for the delay.
