There's something about them that is rather appealing, and taken against that wonderful sky makes a grand capture. Carol

These turbines are making quite a statement as they march across the landscape in ever increasing numbers, and whilst I don't find they add much to the scene generally, when captured solo like this against a sunset sky like that, then I find them that bit more acceptable and in fact they make a very bold image. Very well captured.

I find them beautiful, sculptural. But you can be lynched round here for saying that.
We have strong contacts with Schleswig-Holstein, where individual villages can apply to have their own wind turbine, held in trust for the community. Everyone gets cut-price electricity, any surplus goes into the national grid and the profit goes back into the community. Villages are queueing up...
The problem here is that it's viewed as big-business and remote.

They probably said that about the original windmills as well!! I like the sidelight on the structure, and it pulls all those lovely sky colours together, Albert.

I've never understood why people dislike them so much. Surely they look a lot better than old, rusty pylons, which we've lived with for so long? Anyway, you've made this one look very attractive bathed in that wonderful light.

I like the way they look against a sky like this. I don't like that many birds are killed by them - but we have to find better ways to produce power, and this is at least "clean" energy.

They are erecting a windmill farm about 35 miles south of us - should be interesting to see when it is finished.

Great shot. I agree with Moira, they do have a sculptural quality and are much better than looking than coalmines and nuclear power stations.

Can't see what all the fuss is about. You have made this one into a wonderful sculpture, Albert, and with pictures like this, maybe the turbine haters will be able to see some elegance in them.
