They might be giants

They might not be properly called windmills but they are giants.. giant wind turbines to be exact. While we were on our coastal jaunt of Cadiz province, we drove through one of Andalusia's wind farms or parques eólicos. These magnificent giants dot the skyline with their imposing sleek beauty. And I couldn't help but wonder what Don Quixote would have made of these giants.

All photos taken by me.

Spain is one of the three world’s largest users of wind power. In 2007, wind farms accounted for almost 10% of the electricity generated in Spain. [source wiki]
