Amazing Wind Turbines

Traveling along route 65 through Indiana there are miles and miles of wind turbines.  It is quite an impressive sight for those of you who have not seen this before.  They are massive and somewhat creepy as you watch these giant turbines turning in the wind.  It feels as if I am in some sort of a sci-fi movie.  Intrigued I had to snap a few shots...

To give you an idea on just how massive these are, the posts are 265-feet tall and the 3 blades are each another 132 feet making the total height 400 feet.
There are over 900 of these on the farms and yes the farmers are getting paid for each one on their property.  WOW!
