Winter whites

I love the distant winter sun in this photo and the frost-covered brush. The turbines seem to be a natural part of the landscape, rising up above the brush line with their cool winter colors. This is the NedPower Mount Storm Wind Project in Gamesa, W.Va. The farm came online in 2008 and consists of 132 turbines spread out over 12 miles of mountain ridges. It provides enough energy for about 66,000 homes.
