Turbines at sunset

It’s hard to go wrong with turbines at sunset, and I love how the turbines just keep going off the silhouetted horizon. These turbines rise 213 feet off ground in the Wisconsin farmland between the small villages of Cobb and Montford. They came online in June 2001 and produce enough energy to power 9,000 homes.
