Last year about 35 windmills were built near the city where I live. They're spread over a very large area, it was hard to get more then 5 in the frame at the same time. The towers are 80m (262 feet) high and each blade is 45m (148 feet) long. When I was there, they would do one rotation ever 3.6 seconds so that means the tips were moving at 283 km/h (176 mph). The blades moving through the air sounds like a jet plane, but not as loud.


  1. Clean energy source...good for the environment :)

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. They've started them up now, eh? When I was there in the fall they weren't really moving except when the wind moved them naturally. They look so still in pictures!

  3. wow, these are awesome pictures!! I love how deep blue the sky is in contrast to the bright white windmills. What a cool photo subject!

  4. I was there with him and they're amazing. I didn't know they were that big. You can see the Jeep in the 3rd picture how small it is compared to the wind mill.

    Great pictures!

  5. OMG, These are Amazingly Awesome! Love the deep blue sky. Well done. Great work!
