Photographing Solar Power Mirrors in a desert


Reuben Wu first saw the sprawling solar farm a few years ago flying from Chicago to San Francisco. “I was startled by how bright it was,” he says. “It looked like a fake sun.”

He finally visited the place in March. He worked at dusk and dawn, when the light is best and the mirrors make their most dramatic movements to align with the sun. Despite their size, they move almost silently amid the sound of the wind blowing through the structures. “It sounds a bit haunting,” Wu says… More at Wired.
