K3:Sigma 18-35/Wind Power

Wind power is becoming more popular these days and it adds a unique element to the landscape; especially in agricultural areas. This photo is from southern Alberta where there are many wind farms amongst the farm fields; in this case canola.

There are some who say that wind turbines detract from the landscape - I think your picture proves otherwise! Great shot!

Thanks. Yes the visual aesthetics of wind power are somewhat controversial to many but since I don't live close to one, it is still unique.

Everyone has different opinions on turbines for sure.

Love the shot. Not a big fan of them though.

They are really impressive structures when up close. A few years ago I was driving along the bottom of a hill in central NY. The cloud cover was really low and you could not see to the hubs of the wind mills. Suddenly a massive blade would descend from the clouds and then disappear back up into them again. A very Orwellian experience.

Thanks. If I lived close to them and had to see the towers everyday, I would likely have a different opinion.
