Wind farms and the Landscape Photographer

Those unsightly white spots by the sea foreshore! They destroy pristine blueness of the sea and sky! Not to mention that some really bad guys come under them! Sails!!!

Thank almighty for the steamers and diesels!

Seriously, guys - how beautiful was the land the cities are built on now? Yet we don't find them obscene and happy to snap our photos around them.Smile

It could be said of the Grey Times picture that the turbines add something to a somewhat uninteresting landscape.

I agree looking at the moors from that side

Thank you for your varied responses. I agree that it is still possible to make an interesting landscape image that includes turbines. I also like the idea of the Photoshop removal tool!. However, I am inclined to agree with Ian (Hwatt) and if the proliferation continues, I think that those of you who might only visit the Highlands occasionally will be quite shocked when you see what it is like in a few years time.

Would probably take the wind out of our sails! Sad.

A local group, which objects to wind farms, is trying to gather some evidence concerning the impact that wind farms may have on tourism. If anyone is interested in taking part, here is the link - it only takes a few minutes.

Wind power is heading towards being a dead end technology. Without subsidies, they are not viable and nobody will be interested.

There may be a future business in turbine demolition! Wink
