Beautiful Helicam Footage of a Montana Wind Farm

Trying to build a better planet. Read more from this special report.

Adele and Jeff Scholl of GravityShots.com captured this aerial video of Glacier Wind Farm with a remote control helicopter, revealing the striking elegance of the technology as seen from the air. The team lives in Montana and specializes in helicam photography of the spectacular landscapes there. Don't miss their aerial 360-degree panorama of the Glacier Wind Farm here. The farm was built by NaturEner in north-central Montana in 2008, and after a second phase of building, now comes to 210W. For a visual tour of the biggest wind farms in the U.S., which also happen to be the biggest in the world, check out Alexis Madrigal's photo gallery in this special report.
