Old Farm, New Farm - Wind Farming In Madison County

I actually didn't get the shots I wanted. The drive out to Ithaca at 5am was filled with fog in the fields. I passed many fields that were like this with fog in the base, but clear trees above. Quite a contrast. However, there were few pullouts to park the car and I was uneasy leaving my car barely off the road in the early morning fog.

 

The fog at this time of the year is a result of the warm lakes vs. the cooler ambient air. So it is quite localized, but NY is filled with bodies of water making this phenomenon quite common.

 

Regardless, it turned out to be a nice day, and with great visibility. These wind farms could be seen all over Madison County on my drive west on Route 20.
