Kansas Wind Turbines

Last week was spent mostly in Nebraska calling on customers. Drove over 700 miles on Tuesday to get to Alliance, NE for an afternoon meeting. Along the way I was captivated by the predawn colors of the sky contrasted with the wind turbines churning away almost silently. I found an exit off I70 and drove about 2 miles along a gravel road to get a few images registered on pixels. At the base of one turbines resided a simple "old windmill". I was impressed by the contrast between the "old" and "new" both in stature and construction. I spent part of the 15 minute stop shooting from several angles and with lenses ranging from 11mm to almost 400mm.
