Once your eyes settle an extremely detailed image Nigel. Perhaps a comment on wind farms with those birds passing by unharmed !!!

I like this a lot, I'm still trying to work out why. I guess it's the sense of distance and emptiness.

Thanks Ron and Moira. I have read that birds are killed by these turbines, and I have also read that they are not, so I don't know what to believe. I have no doubt though that anything can be put forward as a "fact" if it supports a particular argument. We live near(ish) to a ten turbine farm. From a visual viewpoint, we do not consider them to be a blot on the landscape (fairly flat farmland). I wouldn't like to see them in the Lake District or North Wales though.

I agree with everything you've said about wind turbines. They are everywhere in Spain and I like to see the hills there covered in them. However, as you say, never in the Highlands, Lake District or Wales. Love this atmospheric image and, once you look in, there's a lot of detail.

PS I don't know whether the arguments for or against them are correct but I'm pleased to see these birds flying by them.
Well I'm in the against camp Nigel, they have started s[routing all over Scotland and I don't like it. Skye is peppered with them, They seem to get the go ahead to build them almost anywhere.

Now back to your image, the birds for me are a good bit in front of the turbines and not in any danger as I see it.

The mood of the image is a delight and the misty light is wonderful. Should look really good on your wall.

Once the eye adjusts to this image - you can really appreciate the quality and detail. It's subtle and minimalist and refreshingly different and I could see this printed very large in a gallery.
Well spotted opportunity Nigel - it says a lot about your photographers eye.

Dougie, I should have included the Highlands and Skye in my list above. like you, I certainly don't agree with them being sited there. I hope they don't have a negative effect on tourism.

Unusual shot, Nigel. Works very well.

A subtle image that works very well. We are in the Highlands and small (5 - 10 turbines) windfarms seem to be popping up everywhere.
Congratulations on the HC award.
