12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Green Energy 2
It was a windy, dusty, full moon night. I took my camera anyway. As I drove out of the mountains back to the town of Mojave the moonlight illuminated a forever changed scene. Hundreds of huge wind turbines have been installed on the western edge of the Mojave and into the Tehachapi mountains. The electricity that is generated is transported to Los Angeles via power lines. As the capacity grows more lines are built.
