photoblog image Chapel St.Leonards 2/5

Chapel St.Leonards 2/5

As with a lot of areas off the English east coast Chapel St.Leonards is “blessed” with an off-shore wind farm and whilst I personally consider they spoil the view out to sea they did make a half-decent background to this shot of an inshore fishing boat going about its business.

C'est la première fois que je vois des éoliennes dans la mer.
Brian Walbey: Sadly a lot of our coastline is dotted with these things, some people like them, I don't, not even on land!

Yes...a positive feature of this image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: That's about the only positive thing about them s far as I'm concerned.
Well - they can make an interesting back drop!
Brian Walbey: Shame they couldn't be taken away and dumped after I'd taken the picture, they are real inefficient eyesores to me whether on land or sea.

Without them this image would be incomplete

A very good capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad.
i did not realize they are that big, Brian.
Brian Walbey: That's just the bit above water Ayush.

Very striking, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl.
They work for the picture. What value they are as part of our drive for renewable energy is open to question
Brian Walbey: That's about all they work for IMHO. I am a total non-believer in the ability of these things to supply much, if any, of our power needs, most of the time they seem to be standing still!

I'm not a fan of wind turbines either - I'm suree some or really electric motors just to give the impression of something happening. I'd rather they were out at sea though rather than on land. Scotland seems covered in them. I hope the fishing was successful with no discards.
Brian Walbey: I'd rather they weren't at all Alan, or anywhere else, I am a total non-believer in the ability of these things to supply much, if any, of our power needs, most of the time they seem to be standing still!
