Windmills

Filed under: Landscapes — Tags: — Frank @ 9:03 PM

Those who know me know that I don’t (usually) make photos on assignment. However, when my wife suggests that she needs a photo of a windmill wind turbine for the upcoming Limrik*… well you know!

I spent part of this afternoon driving the roads of Antrim looking for places to photograph the new windmills wind turbines** along the Tuttle Mountain ridge. I knew that I would not find good views if I was too close since the area is heavily wooded. Thus, I took my long lenses (300 and 600 mm) and searched for spots with an unobstructed, if somewhat distant view. I had some success.

I gave Joan fourteen photos to choose from; five of which are shown here. Hopefully one will be satisfactory!

* The Antrim Limrick is our quarterly community journal. Joan is the editor. Consequently, I am the staff photographer!

** A nine windmill turbine, 28.8 MW “wind farm” on a local mountain ridge is scheduled to begin producing power shortly.

  1. Should have asked as there is a large one just across the bay from my daughter’s home! Are the ones in NH cancer-causing? Does your TV stop working when they are not spinning??
