Energy has been the major industry in west Texas for decades. Until recently it has been primarily oil and gas. One of the most notable sights on our trip west were wind turbines interspersed amongst the pump jacks. Took this shot between Kermit and Odessa, Texas. It took the first one using black and white settings on my camera. I adjusted the others using illumination and photo effects in Corel Paintshop Pro.
