Ovenden Moor

By ade_mcfade      
Tandberg's inspiration will appear in the mods in due course Smile

More of a "standard" view of the wind farm, nice leading road, low light, dark in the background and the turbines lit from the side etc.etc.etc.

I was following the rotors around trying to get one to point straigth up, and bingo I got one! It's at 1/500th as I was handholding.

I get the impression that people prefer to see a bit of movement on these things - I usually go for 1/20th sec but as my tripod legs are not behaving I didn't use it much that day, and 1/20th ain't ever sharp when I'm holding the camera.

Excellent shot, but these things really tick me off. Look at them - all that money spent & a landscape ruined & they're not producing one watt of power. The power stations have to keep running all the time so we can have a cup of tea when there's no wind. How is that saving the planet?
Sorry about that. Rant over. Click.
