Sorry, no oxymoron here. At least from the title and the photo, not one that pops out. The horizon of the photo is slanted, and the picture is a bit bright, i would have turned down the brightness a tad and upped the contrast. Maybe used a faster shutter speed, the blur on the snowflakes is good, but the blades and even shaft of the structure seem a little blurred (shutter speed probably could've helped with the brightness too.


Thanks for the comments. Let me take a moment to explain a few things.

The Oxymoron: For anyone that's ever had to pay an Electric Bill, I think it's pretty self explanitory ;) (ie. The wind may blow "Free" but the "Energy" created sure isn't)

The horizon is not slanted, I think the "road" is throwing you off. It's either that, or I'm wrong and every one of those Wind Turbines were erected on a slant ;)

The sun was shining brightly on the Turbines while the snow was falling.

Dark Lantern

Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a comment!

I'm very pleased with how the shot turned out, this is my best finish in a Challenge to date. The shot itself was a (hopefully not) "Once in a Lifetime" capture for me, and I'm just glad I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

For those who were wondering where the "Darkness" element was in the shot, If you've ever been alone in the wilderness under a moonless night sky, with a lantern as your only source of light. You'll know exactly the feeling invoked by a gradually dimming, and ultimately "Dark Lantern". When the only sense of your surroundings is revealed to you in momentary flashes by the approaching storm.

That is what "Darkness" means to me.

Thanks again for all the kind words!

I kept looking for signs of rotation, but never saw any. They blew in very quickly and were gone just as quick. Not sure what it was all about :)

Ya, it was pretty Crazy. I looked out the window and saw these really strange cloud formations ahead of the approaching storm. Grabbed the camera and just snapped away as they rolled by. If anyone is interested I can post a few more shots.

Thanks for the comments,

This was shot just North of Point Pelee National Park in Ontario, Canada. Point Pelee is the southern most tip of mainland Canada. Here's a link to Mapquest that will show the location (hope it works)

I'd like to thank everyone who commented. Your words were inspiring and helpful. I've only had my DSLR a short while and still have a lot to learn about photography (as well as the camera) :)

Thanks Again!

Hehehe... made me laugh. It's funny how we erect monuments to honour those we revere, only to have them desecrated in such an undignified manner :)

Well composed shot, good eye.
