Like the Cabazon Dinosaurs, the wind farm in Desert Hot Springs can been seen off Interstate 10 on the way to Palm Springs where windmills scatter the desert landscape. Starting near Whitewater and continuing into Palm Springs, by checking the frontage roads, you can get up close and personal with the windmills, which offer some unique perspectives. Whether shooting up at one individual windmill or zooming out for a wide angle view of many of them, you can depict the enormous size of these windmills or the green energy they provide.
Capturing the Shot: Clear skies offer up a bright blue sky against the contrasting mountains and windmills. Too cloudy of a day or overcast and the windmills will seemingly merge with the sky making for a rather bland photo. Because of the high winds in the area, you can often sit until ugly clouds pass by in relatively quick order.
