Thank you very much for your kind remarks Zoltan. The windmills do not look very large but each spoke of the windmill is the length of a train car and 2 or 3 people can fit in the oval area up on the top. They are amazing to see all working at the same time and go on for miles and miles and up and down hills and I think I like that they can make electricity cleanly, just with the power of the wind. I also would like to say that you have a very nice gallery of photographs. Thanks again for looking at my work. Sharon in California.

Hi Sharon, my Englich is not very good so I use the Google translator. For errors, I would like to apologize. A beautiful picture of this wind turbine. Here in the Black Forest, there are no such large plants. In Northern Germany there are also large wind turbines as a substitute for nuclear power.

Many greetings from the Black Forest, Manfred

Wowwwwwwwwwwwww so many of them!! This is exactly what we need more of here. Clean energy. We have 12 of them near Albany on the southcaost of Western Australia. They were built in Germany and we have another planned to be built soon. Thanks for showing this great sight. Its really nice.:-)

Hello David and Manfred. If you look at the map off to the side of the photo and move it around you can see they go on for miles and miles. They have been there for years and years. I think this farm might have been the original test wind farm That is what they call this group of windmills, wind farms. Sharon

Hello Sharon. How is this wind farm on birds? Are there many collisions?
