A "farm" of power-generating wind turbines, modern-day windmills, fills the far side of a manmade lake in Southern California. My thought in photographing the structures this way was to make them seem tiny in scale, when in reality they're massive. I also wanted to create a highly simplified composition, something akin to "field" painting. To help with this I used a red filter, which darkened the blue sky and turned the lake almost black. The sky looks less dark at the bottom because it isn't as blue there--creating the illusion of light over the horizon.
