The Williams Family

On a snowy day in November...  I was blessed to capture some images for the Williams family.  The house was full of many friends and guests so we braved the elements outside and hid under the trees from the snow and wind...  What a beautiful family!

Swenson's Longhorns

I was driving down old stage road like I usually do, passed Swenson's ranch that I have always loved and today his longhorn ladies were quitely watching over their babies...  I luckily had my camera because all I could think about was stopping and photographing them...  Have I ever mentioned that I have a "thing" for cows :)  It swells up a nostalgia in me so strong from my childhood and early adult years of helping ranchers on my horse :)

Hatchet Ridge windfarm, Burney Ca.

My husband and I had the opportunity to photograph the Hatchet Ridge wind farm September 13th 2010 in Burney Ca.   It was built by Pattern Energy Group, LP.  The trip to the top of Mount Burney for some shots was intense with the high winds and view!  What a neat experience!  And to top it all off... 3 of my images will be featured on the cover of  North American Wind Power for the October/November issue :)

 I think this outhouse (on top of Mt. Burney) has got to be one of the best "outhouse" views ive seen lol  And with the super high winds it surely could be an exciting potty adventure :)
Unfortunately me and outhouses dont mix (its a long story lol) so I didnt get to take in the Whole... experience haha!  But I am sure many have, including the ranger who has to be up there every day :)

 The windmills total 44 and are about 300ft. tall. For more technical information visit Patterns page about Hatchet Ridge here. 

Anyone can go visit the windfarm, you just have to sign in with the guard.  Its a really neat feeling to be standing below one of them while they are spinning in the wind.  Here is some video I shot of that :)

For larger view of images just click on them :)

This first panoramic you see below was photographed for a wall mural that is to be 19x9 feet.  So it is comprised of 27 high resolution images stitched together.  You can see the windfarm on the left and Mt. Shasta on the right, below is one of Burneys mills.
