Paging Don Quixote

Paging Don Quixote
Last week, we took a drive out to the Ririe reservoir area in hopes of getting a photo of the lake which we could use as a portfolio addition.  Sadly, our normal luck with getting the shot we came for struck again.  On the way out, I noticed something about the wind turbines which were scattered around in the farm field just above the lake.  It was also sunset.  You know what this means.

You know this means that I had to pull out my camera and try for a consolation shot.  This I did and came up with this beautiful photograph of windmills and a growing field of green.

The orange glow in the sky was just perfect to back light the three blades of each windmill.  There was just enough light to also light up the green field in front.  What was a gorgeous but boring sunset (no clouds) ended up being perfect for the shot above.

While I was processing up this photo, my spouse took a look at it and said, "Paging Don Quixote."  It stuck.  I remembered how the comical character, wishing he was a knight of old, had charged a windmill claiming it was a giant.  It was a perfect reminder of a humorous part of a classic novel.  This photo was just as perfect an addition to my portfolio.
