Blowin' in the wind

Today was the one working day of my visit to Cornwall but I still managed to find a photo opportunity in between waving my arms at recorder players and dodging the rain showers. On our way home Shirley and I stopped at the Carland Cross Wind Farm and, despite the overcast weather, I just about managed to find enough contrast between the enormous turbines and the grey sky. I used as slow a shutter speed as I dared in the blustery conditions to try and capture a sense of movement in the turbine blades. Let??s hope I get better weather for the rest of my visit now I??m officially on holiday!

      Great shot, but I admit I don´t like them...the landscape looks so strange with them....
      have a great holiday!

      The weather does not have make your holiday,
      you have to do it yourself ... with your camera in your hand.

      Nice capture!
