The Alaskan village of Selawik is built on a wetland on the river near Selawik Lake. It is far removed from Kotzebue and the coast, and fuel for heating or generating electricity is very expensive here. Every gallon must be shipped in.
Here we see the windfarm that supplies some of Selawik's energy without the cost of burning fossil fuel. Wind is plentiful up here on the Arctic Circle, and these wind generators are usually moving, cranking out watts that came to town on the wind.
This panorama was photographed with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
