On ranches in Southern New Mexico, windmills are usually found in settings that make for interesting images.
We have set out to find and photograph windmills near Ruidoso, that are surrounded by mountains, desert, meadows, canyons, livestock and other backdrops of interest. Corrals, tanks, chutes, and fencing that are near a windmill can be as interesting as the windmills themselves.
The images below are just a few of the ranches in Lincoln County. As we find and photograph more windmills, the photos will be added to our photo gallery on Pinterest called New Mexico Windmills. Please contact us if you have photos, or access to ranch land with windmills. We would like to add those images to our gallery.
