    Hi folks, here's a few of the shots from my trip to the wind farms. There's more on my flickr page. Comments are of course welcome!

    I really love number two and three. I love the severity of the sky.
    I also really like the last one, but mainly because you can see how huge the fans are (not sure the correct term) compared to a telephone pole\roads etc. Really neat stuff! I do find the last couple images a wee bit grainy? perhaps it's my eyes or screen.. but that's the only thing I'm gonna pick apart!

    The grainy ones are the ones shot on the cheap Arista brand film. I actually really love the colours that the film produced, but it's quite grainy for an ISO 100 film. Thanks a lot for your kind words, unfortuanately I don't feel I did a very good job capturing the scale of these machines. When I first went up to one and looked at it I felt dizzy from the sheer enormity of it... WOW.

    Awesome shots... However yes I agree with you- they look WAY bigger in real life!!! The one that is closest to showing the real scale is #2... When you stand underneath them, for myself anyway, it makes me postively dizzy.

    I live right near the new wind farms here in Ontario....
