    Take away the wind turbines and it could be southern Illinois. Nice images.

    Thanks Caimi. I was thinking of you when I posted. The windmills are in Benton County, IN. I think there may be nearly 1000 of these 455 feet (139m) tall behemoths in that county.

    I have mixed feelings I originally liked them before they proliferated so. They are a huge cash crop for the farmers. Though quite slow moving, neighbors complain of the noise. At nite it looks like a massive airport runway system only with red strobing lites.

    This is from 2008 when they were first erecting the "Windmill Farms".
