    I always drive past these turbines from a distance and have been dying to get up there and take some photos. So today, on fathers day, I dragged my dad out for a walk in the ****ing rain through 45 minutes of sheep ****, so that I might take some photos... which seemed perfectly reasonable to me. :D [edit: I shall wash my filthy mouth out with soap...]

    Feedback would be appreciated if anyone can be bothered to take the time, thanks :lol:

    The turbines themselves are scale deceptive, and you'll see their enormity from some of their pictures, unfortunately I couldn't get a photo of the nice 'whoosh' sound they were making as they spun ;)

    Photobucket is once more priding itself in being a royal pain in the ass when it come to resizing my photos... I won't even bother to attempt to fix them this time. :x

    Nice. I ship a lot of those by truck and rail for a living. I definitely know how
    big they really are. :) Each one of those blades are near 100' in length. :D
