Last week I stumbled across a post that was entitled “The 10 photos that every photographer will attempt”. It had things like sunset at a beach, running water, fog, trees and several other cliches that we see all too often.
Somehow reading that articles caused a block to form. A resistance to produce an image of anything that might be considered trite. I sat this morning and bemoaned the task of finding a photo to post. All out of the fear of being perceived as having the same vision and producing meaningless images.
Out here in the desert and living in ranch country, windmills become a “go to” subject. I see a great sunset coming and I gravitate to the nearest windmill. Somehow they become the beach, the trees, the ordinary trite and overdone images of the west.
So with a bit of ado, I give you my latest windmill. I can’t help myself. Last week while in New Mexico, I even purchased a print of another photographer’s gorgeous print of what else, a windmill.

Beautiful shot jim! The color is perfect as is the exposure! You captured a beautiful moment here! Thanks much for sharing!
That’s a gorgeous shot! The lighting and shadows are beautiful!
Hi–found your site through a link on the lovely blog, Invisible Horse. Admire your gorgeous photos. More, I recognized –and appreciated reading–your words on this post. It’s so easy to get frozen by the fear of appearing/sounding trite–usually prompted by reading something sarcastic or snarky and taking it too much to heart. Thanks for posting your beautiful work.
