I’ve watched this stack for years, often driving past and wondering about shooting it. There have been many, many days where the lighting, the wind and the clouds were perfect.
This wasn’t quite one of those days, but I did have my gear with me and plenty of time to stop.
The wind was a very fresh northerly. I parked the car facing into the wind, which let me lift the back hatch and use the whole car as a wind block. Very necessary during this 30 second exposure.
And while standing out there, it got me to thinking. Here I am in Germany, taking pictures of industrial sites and no one so much as approached. Much different than the land of the free and the home of the brave, where such activity is now considered a terrorist activity.
Have any of you ever been approached? How did you handle it?
