Well first there were some benefits, It got me motivated to spend more time on photography. I made new online photography connections, etc.....But now the site has gone inactive with a huge downside that I now am in the process of manually copying every post over again in order to preserve them. Since I don't own the site, I cannot download my posts directly from WordPress (if you know of a way to do this, please let me know). So I'm in the middle of copying 100+ posts.......a very slow process.
This is intended as a 'word to the wise', a caveat. Always keep copies of your posts if you do decide to participate in a project like this.....The digital world is ephemeral anyway. I knew that, but trusted that this project would have more staying power, but it didn't.
So to keep myself going I will start reposting my salvaged 52 Rolls posts. So below is my first '52 Rolls Redux': From July 2017
--> We view the Prairie Sentinels at the Cedar Creek Wind Farm:
They are located near Pawnee Buttes, out in the northeastern plains of Colorado. An effective collaboration between ranchers and renewable energy. That's why I particularly like the bails of hay scattered among the Windmills.
On previous visits we only got this close (above); But this time we found a road that passed through part of the wind farm.
And the Pawnee Buttes:
Very strange atmospheric conditions and flat light due to haze from all the many wildfires here in the western US and Canada. Click here for more from the Buttes.
And a little reminder of what eastern Colorado looks like. Everyone thinks of mountains, but half the state is in the Prairie.........
