Here are some images of wind turbines in farm and ranch land a few miles North of Chickasha Oklahoma take near and from US Hwy 81. Once again I was using Nikon D700 with the Nikkor 28-70 f/2.8.
Notice the red brick road. I assume this is another example of Thurber brick that was used all over the region including Camp Bowie street in Fort Worth, Highway 180 between Weatherford and Mineral Wells, Mineral Wells, and just about all the small towns West of Fort Worth and East of Abilene.
If you are in Strawn on Friday night in the Fall you really should head to the stadium before 7:30 kick-off and take in some Texas 6-man football. They know how to do it right in Strawn. And afterwards you need to eat at Mary’s Café’.
And of course, awesome food at Mary’s Café’. Peggy attempted a photo bomb but that T-Bone was good and my eye still gravitates to it. 🙂
Life got in the way of my 52 week project. I decided to get back at it but I had a dilemma: start over at week 1 or pick-up where I left off. I decided to pick up where I left off. Yes it’s not a strict 52 week photo project but the more important point is to get out and take photos and share them here. So here goes.
This set of images were all taken at the town of Palo Pinto on hot Sunday afternoon (July 17th, 2014). I was using my Nikon D700 and Nikkor 28-70 f/2.8. The sun was harsh plus I wanted depth of field for most of these so I was shoot with high aperture settings

This appears to be an old jailhouse that is now in a park with a few log cabins and antique farm equipment in Palo Pinto

Taken about 30 minutes before sunset on the first evening of deer season west of Mineral Wells Texas. You can see we are in enjoying our two weeks of autumn in north central Texas.
On this outing my camera was better equipped for wildlife than landscapes, but the wildlife were uncooperative. This scene was several hundred yards away from me. I was using a Nikon D300 with Nikkor 300mm f/4.0. As the sun dropped lower on the horizon it illuminated the stone amongst the cedar and elm trees.
This week we started seeing evidence that our two-week Texas Autumn season is just around the corner.
This is one of my first attempts with a used Nikon D300 that I picked up recently. It has the same form factor as my D700 but has a DX sensor which provides for a 50% tighter crop effect because of the smaller digital sensor. It isn’t intended to be my landscape photography kit; that genre rightly belongs to my full frame D700, But when a picture presents itself you use what you have on hand.D300
