Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload, and to Malc (Saltireblue) for his UA very much appreciated.

Met up with Ade Mcfade last week at the wind farm above Halifax, a good sky and some changing light gave us a chance of some good images from this location and a pint afterwards.

Accorrding to the local newspaper all these turbins are to be replaced by 9 very big ones, so this place will have a very different look.

Thanks for looking

That is a good viewpoint Richard together with that cracking sky. It could only be made better if Ade was rep-laced by 9 big turbines.

The wind turbines and restless atmosphere give a lovely inherent movement. Superb clouds, Richard.

The first three structures make a nice composition and the clouds are great. If I'd taken this I think I'd have cloned out the other turbines and cropped the right hand side a bit, but then it wouldn't have been authentic. Smile

I question the existence of wind turbines (but that's another topic altogether) but I never thought a good photo with lead in lines could be made out of them but you've done it Richard. Congrats.

A cracking image there's a real feal of power in that sky. The position of the road and the way it curls through the centre of the image gives it perfect balance. Great work.
