Wind, Energy, Human Energy

Today I drove about 10 miles off the main rode to Helix, NO TREES FOR 30 MILES, in the middle of high seas swells of fields, a town of 4 blocks of houses and some farm supply, then back out into the rolling swells. No water for sure. I thought how amazing to be in such beauty and NOT find it inspiring to photograph, and probably, it's the same as being on the water in a boat. Everything is still too gray, though soon.... ok ok, get out of the truck and walk on top of the earth, then see what you'll see. And, I did, to take pictures of the monumental wind turbines.

Looking to Walla Walla, WA, and Eastward at the Blues towards Idaho. There must be 1000 of these towers here.... We imagine endless energy, but where does it come from? The wind yes, some, but mostly from our industry and remarkable capacity to throw the net out and catch the fish.
