When I am driving around the countryside I am always looking for a good windmill to shoot and I managed to find this one just outside of Bungendore just near the Capital Wind Farm. I think that windmills are typically Australian and combined with the golden colours of the of the ground and the blue of clear sky it seems to always be a good combination.
I have always wanted to take a slow shutter shot of a windmill to get that surreal blurred look in the blades and this was the day as the use of an 3 stop ND filter and Polariser managed to slow the speed down long enough to blur the movement. Turns out you don’t actually need to slow a speed to blur the blades, especially when there is a bit of wind about.
Let me know what you think.
