Generation Gap

Old power lines being feed by renewable wind turbines in Dexter, Minnesota on a windy and cold February morning.

Elvis was traveling from Iowa when he noticed this scene. Even though the outside temperature was -3 degrees Fahrenheit, with howling, sustained 35 mile per hour winds, Elvis braved the elements to bring you this rather bleak landscape.

The symmetry, geometry and trigonometry contained in the single frame is what caught Elvis' eye.

Note: with temperatures this low and winds this high it is PAINFUL to be outside. Pain, as in banging your knee on a sharp corner, getting your fingers caught in a closing door or getting poked in the eye with a sharp stick. Your eyes water, your lips can't move and there is searing pain on any exposed skin. Really, it hurts!

Generation Gap

 The photograph was made with a Nikon D810 and a 14-24 mm lens set at 14mm.
