Freight Train Windmill Stars (first draft)


  • Image of Freight Train Windmill Stars (first draft)

I shot this photo a year or so ago in the Davis mountains between Alpine and Marfa. Lighting was moving in from the north and I was hoping to catch the windmill and the stars and some lightning. Unfortunately, the clouds rolled in and turned the sky into complete soup, but not before I was able to get a few decent shots of the scene while a freight train illuminated the ground and the blades of the windmill.

I’ll be returning to this scene in 2020 to capture the train lights and windmill again: this time with a wider lens that lets in significantly more light than the Canon 24-105 f/4 that I shot this image with.

So many people have asked me for a print of this that I’m going to go ahead and make a few of these available on a first come first served basis.

I’m only selling enough of these to pay for the new lens and the trip out to Alpine reshoot the scene with better gear.

If you buy this, I’ll include a discount code good for half price off the new image! Thanks!
