    Hello everyone,

    Been a while since I posted on here, but I decided to share a little trip I took today to our wind farm. They are brand new, Vestas units, and they each generate 3MW of power. All totaled, the farm has 32 individual turbines, and the site is open to the public.

    So here is what your greeted with

    Then onto the sites

    I can`t believe how much these blades bend in the wind!

    Wind turbines are very uncommon to my part of the world, but our city is the first to endeavor into wind energy. It is planned that at peak operating times, the facility will power over 17,000 homes.

    Enjoy :)

    Beautiful sky in most, but all in all these are not the most thrilling of photos. Though I wouldn't know which different, better attempt one might take a photographing a windfarm. :scratch:

    Actually, my favourite of these is the one where the sky is all DIFFERENT from the friendly blue, or it would be my favourite with that dark sky in the background if only it were tack sharp. Which unfortunately it isn't...
