I thought this might have ended up being called "Cloud Churner" or something similar. A great image Ian. I never noticed at the time, was this taken with a graduated filter? It looks like it may have been when I look at the wind turbine pillar.

@Mike: Hi Mike! No, I only used a 6 stop nd filter to get the slow shutter speed (no grad). Adding my 2 stop nd on top of the other one would have probably meant using iso1600 instead of 400.

The earnest B/W makes it look like a mythical site. Strong image.

That is terrific. I saw Mike's shot of you and had to check your shot immediately. It must have been a super day.

superb photo with a good atmosphere and just the right amount of blur on the windmill to give it a perfect look as it curs through the clouds and air...

I love photographs of desolate places such as this... And yet, what a beautiful graphism !
