Wind farms near Pincher Creek

The area around Pincher Creek, Alberta, where the wind sweeps down from the foothills of the Rockies, is full of wind farms. Many of the windmills  are far from the road, but this turbine was close enough to be more easily visible to the camera's eye.

Strange that while in northern Alberta, the controversial oil sands production continues, in the south, they're using something as clean and natural as wind to generate power.

Right: This was taken during a heavy wind storm.
