This photos shows Levél Wind Farm in Hungary which is located on the crossroad of Hugarian highways M1 leading to Vienna in Austria and M15 to Bratislava in Slovakia, between Mosonmagyaróvár and Hegyeshalom in the north-west of Hungary.
The northwestern part of Kisalföld, the Mosoni-síkság is one of the windiest areas in Hungary, so it is the best place to install wind turbines. The first turbines were built in 2002, and now there are many rotating rotors in all directions. In the administrative area of Levél you can find 24 wind turbines installed in two phases, in 2006 and 2008.
The type of the half of them is Gamesa G90, the other half is REpower MM 82. One of these turbines produces about 4.2 GWh energy each year which is the consumption of roughly 2000 to 2500 families.Gamesa G90 has rotor diameter of 90m, rotation speed is 9-19 rounds/min, 3 blades, each of 44 m in length, weight of blades is 6 tons, hub height is 100m and nominal power is 2MW. REpower MM 82 has rotor diameter of 82m, rotation speed is 8-17 rounds/min, 3 blades, weight of blades is 6 tons, hub height is 100m and nominal power is 2MW.

Along different highways come more that hundred windmills
Your picture is nice contrasting taken.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

the wind turbines make very interesting receding silhouettes against a most attractive sunset.
I like the composition with the dominance given to the pink and blue sky,very nicely done.
Kind regards Les.
