Hi, @davidapalmer52 here with another post. This time from Biglow Canyon Wind Farm near Rufus, Oregon. We’ve all seen these #WindTurbines standing on distant ridge tops but they are really magnificent when you get close.
The road to the #WindFarm out of Rufus winds around the hillsides and you can’t see the turbines until you climb almost to the top of the ridge. After what seemed like an eternity, we came around a corner and the ridge above us opened up with the sight of many windmills against the deep, blue sky.
I retired from Oregon’s high-tech industry after a career spanning over three decades in the Silicon Forest. I have an affinity for machines. After I got over the WOW! of seeing these machines arrayed across the wheat fields, I set about capturing the magnitude and power of the scene. #CleanEnergy has its own beauty that complements the natural beauty of #Oregon . - Dave
Each week, will we feature several photos that we believe best represents the true beauty of Oregon. Don’t forget to tag Oregon Environmental Council on your next photo and use the hashtag #ItsYourOregon to be featured on our feed!
O tempo se armou de fato
Lá pra o lado do Uruguai
Vai chover barbaridade
E sem poncho ninguém sai
E é por isso
Que o campeiro se agasalha
Porque sabe que não falha
A previsão de vaqueano
Sabe que é dura a peleia
Quando a tempito se enfeia
Pro lado dos castelhanos... #windfarm#windpower#workhard#windenergy#puravida#siemensgamesa
