In the shadow of....



some dirty great big wind turbines, i know Bill you don't like them and i too  thought they looked out of place here by the side of Another Place  but i didn't realize just how big they are till i saw the man  stood there , strangely enough i think the man thought he was a statue  as he never moved  an inch for over 2 hours lol, strange man.

We have them here as well and I was gobsmacked the first time I saw them.
The man provides a great sense of scale.

They are simply massive and very noisy
tim hitchins: massive but must have been the wind as i couldn't hear anything Tony cheers mateysmile
Perhaps he was taking a long exposure photograph Tim? You are right I detest these things. The only possible use for them would be to fire excess seagulls at them to be splatted.
tim hitchins: grin so funny on both counts there Bill, cheerssmile

Like them or hate them, you cannot deny they make a good silhoette ;o)

We're nothing!!! nice Tim!!
Bloody awful things as far as I am concerned Tim and now the idiots in Westminster want to put even more up. Having said that this lot do make for a good picture smile
tim hitchins: so happy you thought so Brian and yes i fear they will be popping up all over the place soon.
Nice one Tim, did you park near here , or did you go to the car park near the coast guard station.
I do like them I have
two posts on the 1st and 3rd of February if you remember. This is a great shot, Tim.
tim hitchins: i guess they do look unusual don't they Albert,cheers mateysmile

Nice shot. I think if you look up the word 'redundant' inthe dictionary - you should find a picture of these things.

When you pass by them in the car, you don't get the sense of scale - they look like towering giants. Very atmospheric shot.
Ingrid

Wind power! Power to the future! lol. Its a likey for me for a couple of reasons: 1) I'm all for wind energy 2) That person in the picture who stood motionless for so long might as well be me, this looks like a lovely place to reflect and lose yourself, just look at the lighting!
tim hitchins: lol so your like me too Mia although some company at times when out and about wouldn't go amiss, yes the sun had just risen as i got there and i did miss the best of the color but nevermind there's always next time, cheers Miasmile
