The wind turbines fascinate me. We go to this Willow Slough area up north of Kentland, Indiana...and on the way there we go through wind turbines and they are as far over in Illinois as we can see and as far east in Indiana as we can see.

A lovely shot of the soybeans, wind turbines, and that magnificent sky.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

there is a huge spread-out wind farm around Layfayette IN, near Perdue U. You seem to drive right down the middle of it on I65 between Indianapolis and Chicago. I like your hot because the clouds seem to be stirred by the giant vanes. And the soybeans don't seem to mind the intrusion.

Such a lovely composition!
What is the main crop seen in the picture? Beetroot?
Did you change the white balance to "cloudy"?

@London Caller: Soybeans

Jerry from Aberdeen, United States

Excellent photo, good detail and nice colors. I am reminded that millions of beautiful birds are killed world wide each year with these windmills, which is a real shame. In some places the eagle, our American symbol is being wiped out by windmills. If you or I kill an eagle we could go to jail, the government lives by a different standard. People are fascinated with the thought of "free" energy but usually there are many associated cost, some evident and others not so evident with windmill energy. Love your capture of the sky in this photo also.
