Tallest condor in the world goes up 290 feet in the air.  Average wind turbine height is 200 to 250 feet for the tower.  But that seems to be quite a large wind turbine, which would be more like 300 ft.  And that's the tower, where the camera is at is currently above that.

Judging by where the top blade is coming into frame I'd say the camera is rigged to the blade.  Or what seems more likely to me somehow is that the photographer climbed out there.  Camera guys can be crazy like that.

Could be one of those propelled balloonist camera guys, like the ones hired to film Planet Earth. A telephoto lens on the camera would enable them to get that shot without getting super close to the blade and risk damage to the balloon.

I thought about maybe a helicopter with a telephoto lens, but it's not a telephoto lens. You can tell from the distortion of the blade closest to camera. You only get with with a fairly wide lens. Also, see how everything is pretty much in focus?  Definitely a wide lens.  You'd have to be too close to get it in a balloon or chopper I think.

EDIT:  Sorry if I'm coming off as a dick. I've been watching too much Sherlock. He's such a dick on that show, but it got me in the mood for mystery solvin.
