Portlaw Wind Turbines
Went to see the two wind turbines recently installed in Portlaw Co. Waterford on Thursday last. The weather was excellent as you can see, cold and windy but very sunny. Thankfully I decided to bring my camera(s) with me (and had charged up the batteries a few days before). It's impossible to get a sense of scale when you get relatively close to them, they almost seem to shrink the closer you get. We didnt venture past the locked gates but I imagine standing beside them would let you realise how big they actually are. Its a pity I didnt bring my tripod with me because I would have loved to have seen what they blades looked like with a long exposure. Something to try the next time perhaps.
