windmills by Hans Franchesco Back in the olden days windmills were made of wood with great big sails to drive the grindstones used to turn corn into flour. Those beautiful windmills are now often the subject of the photographers fancy. But today’s windmills are tall white metal towers with hi-tech blades used to generate eco-friendly electricity. This is just a small part of the farm that spans the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington on Highway 97 near Biggs Junction. http://flic.kr/p/VSR3nJ
