Whitelee was wet. I made it to the field and closed in on the whoon whoon whoon whoon noise of the blades. It was spooky and atmospheric; the sky was washed out and grey. In every direction you looked there were mills.
I walked around and got a feel for the land. There were some hints of cycle paths and clues to solve human intervention but mainly it was rugged terrain with giant mills. To give the organic looking feel I used a nice function built into the Nikon D800 to allow combining several frames in-camera.
