If you live in western Washington, there is a saying one hears frequently. When asking about the location of a place or an object the answer is frequently….oh, over there behind those trees. Don’t get me wrong, I do not dislike trees, but they do add an additional element of difficulty when trying to take pictures. Now, if one travels to the central or eastern portion of the state this is what you find. Beautiful rolling hills; sometimes golden, sometimes green. This image was taken in what is considered “the gorge”, the strip of land along the Columbia River. The gorge is like a giant wind tunnel. Sometimes there is a lovely light breeze, sometime gale force winds, but always there is wind near the water. I know these windmills have not always been there, but they have been there for so long my mind has now decided they really have always been there. I have no idea if they are indeed profitable, and I definitely do not feel they add a romantic feel to an image, but they are there nonetheless.
