    Is it me, or is a "true" triangle specifically a man made shape. I was out and about quite a lot this weekend, and it's nearly impossible to find a triangle in nature that has straight sides. (just an observation- and nothing more)

    Gave up with the lighting on the top box after I swallowed the torch. So I went looking for triangles in nature. These parrot flowers are as near as I could find in and around the house.

    They could look spectacular with the right lighting and a more skilled photographer. Still, I like the diagonal composition, as it also splits the image into two triangles.

    A survival rule says that there are almost no straight lines in nature. If you are lost, and you come across one, chances are it is man-made.

    Triangles?

    First of all, I'm not at all sure that these even qualify as triangles. They are, perhaps, the endoskeleton of a triangle.

    I spent the afternoon riding trails in the mountains of Tehachapi in search of the right spot. I found two or three, but I'm just not in love with any one of them.

    I like this first one, if only that is shows the true scale of these massive windmills.



    I'm not happy with the position of the blades, especially in relation to each other. Also, there's a third windmill's blade peeking in the left margin.

    This is the image for which I had the highest hopes. It was difficult to reach and I spent quite a bit of time just keeping the bike upright. When I finally got everything organized, I had to shoot blind with the camera slightly below ground level in a depression. This is the best of the shotgun approach, and a worthy image, but the windmill is growing out of the bike. Aargh!

    And, of course, this is the safest image and the most technically sound, but it's just plain boring.

    Your first is my favorite.
    And what you see as an error is actually another triangle!

    Bonus points ; )



    I saw this at Gallery Night in Alpine Friday. How many triangles do you see?

    When I took this shot I saw three obvious triangles. Later the 4th jumped out at me.

    There are at least eight triangles at first glance.
