Watching Big Wind

July 10, 2020

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately documenting the construction of Michigan’s soon-to-be largest wind farm, which is just a short drive from my home in Midland, MI, in the next county over, Isabella.

The tiny burg of Rosebush is currently the epicenter, and it’s been a respite of peace in the Covid era to sit for hours listening to birds and crickets among the quiet farms and fields, something that gratefully, will not change when the turbines go into operation.
