Wind Power.jpg

Near Vanderhoof, B.C.

This is for Jeff :)
Bits and pieces of "Okie trees" have been transported
along our Hwy. 16 for several months now. Recently
we had time to stop for a shot, but I couldn't persuade
my husband to sit on the blade :)

Canon EOS 6D
1/125s f/10.0 at 17.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

That beautiful cloudscape first caught my eye! As for wind turbines, I like to paraphrase a poem, 'I think that I will never see a turbine lovely as a tree." Voted.

Superb photograph! V

LOL. I done blame him!
It is probably headed my way! Have them paint some leaves and branches on it!
A very cool capture of this moment, my friend! ~V~

They are huge great shot giving the viewer some idea how big these blade can be.
A lifting crane for sure to put this in place.
Nice detailed shot.

Toujours très impressionnant de croiser un routier transportant une pale d'éolienne! V

Wow! That is BIG! Great that you got it all in. V

That looks huge! Hopefully you don't have to overtake one. Wind or sun power, better than the alternatives
Walter Otto Koenig26-Aug-2016 16:52
Great shot. The size is amazing. Hope they don't encounter curves. "V"

Wow, that thing is absolutely enormous! Excellent capture of this phenomenon, and I like the sky, too. V.

I had no idea they were this long - what a great shot! v

Looks huge loaded on the trasnport vehicle. They are all over the hills in my area. Okie trees :)) V
Chris Morton26-Aug-2016 07:14
that is really large; never seen one transported, but ours must be on a smaller scale

good to see alternate power sources moving into place...the tower looks massive...
