Distant Towers

On a misty winter’s morning, I peer into the distance… and what towers are these?

    I wouldn’t have known what they were. Are they going to have blades on them that turn in the wind when they are done?

    • They are indeed. When they first starting constructing these towers I thought them odd-looking oil rigs, since they also make rigs here (in fact I’ve had one almost outside my door the past month). But gettting closer, it does become obvious what they are.

  3. An interesting type of wind turbines. The ones we have here are individual poles or stems, with a mounted blade, spaced quite a distance apart.on a hillside.
    As an avid bird lover, I detest wind turbines and those blades that kill so many birds, but I guess any source of power we create ourselves must disrupt something of the environment. Thank God for Niagara Falls. 😉

    • These towers are under construction. Wind turbines made here are shipped all over the world. And I’d say their tops are added at destination.
      And I fully agree about the damage to wildlife. We had nesting Little Terns, now quite rare in Britain. But then again, I ought to rephrase that. We HAD nesting terns.
