Here are just seven of the 83 wind turbines installed as the Halkirk Wind Project about 120km east of Red Deer between the towns of Halkirk and Castor. My Uncle Elmer toured me around the farm this past fall. There are unending possibilities for lining up the towers and their blades. This time however, I decided to eliminate the massive blades completely on the front tower and let the stark shape of the tower itself dominate the prairie sky.

    • Hi Joanna, I knew Tim was on some of the big turbines, but wasn’t sure which ones.
