Windy Hill #14620
The high windy hill of a farm striped by corn and other crops is a great place for another kind of crop: electricity produced by the wind turbines of a wind farm. Indeed, this wind farm built on working farmland provides a second year-round crop of alternative energy from the breezes blowing across the highlands of the Alleghenies in Pennsylvania. Both methods of using this land produce something of great benefit for all.
When alternative energy creation is green and sustainable without pollution, it certainly does benefit everyone. And although some complain about the appearance of these large towers across the landscape, I think they’re a thing of beauty and in the common parlance, awesome.
This wind farm has towers that are taller than most and seem to miniaturize everything else around them. Look closely for the telephone poles going across the landscape to get a good idea of scale in this image. These wind turbines are some of the largest I’ve seen.
You can see more scenic pictures of wind towers making alternative electricity in my Wind Tower gallery.
Location: the farm fields and countryside near Carrolltown and Patton, Cambria County, Pennsylvania.
