365 Days of Photos – Day 154

I really like the the large wind turbines. Even though we don’t have any in the immediate areas there are thousands in west Texas. Occasionally I will see semi trucks hauling the blades. Today I saw a train with nearly 25 blades – one blade for every car. Fortunately the train was parked so I was able to get up close. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a shot from a decent angle to show the endless string of blades.

Here is one photo I did get….it shows several blades.

    Wow, I didn’t realize how huge they are. If you didn’t say what they are, I wouldn’t know. Next time I drive by one, I have to pay more attention on it. Thanks for the photo!

      Thanks for the comment Helen. They are very large. I really wish I could’ve gotten a better angle on the shot….but these days you can’t really nose around railroad yards without security getting suspicious!

      It really was. I noticed them from a bridge going over the railroad tracks. Unfortunately I couldn’t stop on the bridge. It looked REALLY cool from above!!

    Your photo blew me away. . Ha ha!
    We have many turbines in Illinois. They are majestic to me, even tho they are man made.
