Wind turbines in the sun

My father and I drove from their home out to the wind farms at the lowest point of the Tararua ranges, near the Manawatu gorge. We went to the "Te Apiti" wind farm, one of several in the area. Each group of turbines has been built at a different time with a different set of technology and thus a different height, pylon structure and vane diameter.
