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

Love them - NEVER !! But an unfortunate excellent replacement for burning coal to generate electricity SmileGrinGrin

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.
lovely image great colour
They have a charm all of their own living in an area where within the next 12 months over 100 will be visible from the village its a good job too

You have made a statement with this.
The modern world objects emphasise natures special gifts
of clouds in the background… Lovely work….

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.

I doubt it Albert, unless they are captured like this, super image,

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.

Excellent colour Albert. I love them more for what they do than for how they look Wink

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.

a great fg interest to modify those brilliant colors-- LIKE THIS IMAGE!

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.

It nicely breaks or divides, if you like, the glorious sky, beautiful compo. I like those windmills.

As expected divided opinion on wind turbines themselves. Many thanks to everyone who have looked, voted and commented.
