Cool shot, Steve. Those dark clouds add a great aura.

In California, I came across a whole field full of these in the Mojave. Neat sight and a great way to get energy.

Cheers Liam, hope you're keeping well. I also saw masses of them on the way from LA to Phoenix near Palm Springs and they seemed to fit in there. Here though a lot of the beautiful countryside and coastlines are becoming a breeding ground and these things are now so big (128 meters). The little toy wind turbines beside were enormous when first erected and are now due to be replaced by its big brothers and you can see them for miles and miles. Wind I feel is possibly not the best option here, possibly tidal power that is predictable would be a lot better.


PS thanks for looking in.
