Palm Springs Wind Farm – Photo Essay

On 18, Feb 2015 | No Comments | In Photography | By vashi

The San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm is one of the windiest places in Southern California. That’s why 3218 wind turbines are strewn across the desert outside of Palm Springs. Everyone driving past on interstate 10 instinctively starts wildly snapping photos with their phone at 70mph. The results are often unsatisfactory. My Instagram account proves me guilty of this too many times!

Yesterday, I decided to take my time, drive around and let my eye find some pleasing angles and dramatic views to capture. It was late in the afternoon and the sun was dropping behind the 10,834 feet high San Jacinto Mountains.

Here are the results… (CLICK TO ENLARGE PHOTOS)
















BONUS: 10-mile stretch of Highway 62 just north of Palm Springs



I was armed with my trusty Canon 5Dmkii and a Nikon AIS 100-300 f5.6 lens.

These images not only satisfied my momentary creative need…but also serve as inspiration for the thriller/mystery feature film I have set in Palm Springs.
Until next time….
