Your technique is extremely good, Larry - the exposure time is spot on to get the circles of light on the windmills.

They say all this windmills have changed the jet stream and how it moves. Global warming seems and living green have impacted the earth in a bad way. I will be interested to see future studies on how these wind turbines impact the earth after a couple of decades. Although it does not take away the beauty of the phototure. Awesome shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
Palm Springs CA
Time
Around 11:00 pm at night
Lighting
There was a power plant next to the wind mills that was a source of light.
Equipment
Nikon d300 with a 12 to 24mm lens. With a tripod Electronic shutter release.
Inspiration
I love night photography and saw the wind mills from highway 10 .I found a back road that paralleled the highway. Shortly after I started taking my photos two trucks came racing up to me. A couple guys jumped out and asked me what I was doing. I let them know I was just taking photos. I thought they were going to kick. me out but they just told me not to go past the fence where the power plant was. I thought to myself... duh, like I was going to go play on the power plant. I kept shooting for awhile and this was my best shot.
Editing
Just a little Light Room.
In my camera bag
NIKON
Feedback
I just use my tripod with a electronic shutter release. In the old days, with film, night photography was some what of a crap-shoot. Now take a photo at night and you can see your results right away. I still bracket and take lots of photos.
