    • You don’t see much movement David when the photo is taken at 0.0025s 🙂 I do know how much you hate them but I’m afraid to say that you will be seeing a lot more in the future. Probably won’t see too many in Oman though. 🙂

      • Ha that is probably not so ! some how a group of charlatans have almost certainly convinced Oman that they should have them in southern Oman………..
        With all this sunshine.
        No escaping the things.


      • Now that you mention it David, a good location would be on the 8th. fairway at Thumrait golf course. The wind could sometimes turn your golf ball through 180. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for your comment. You have a very interesting blog which I can relate to because I have been to your town many times. You are the lucky one living in such a beautiful area. Although I am now retired, I worked for twenty years in Oman and part of my duties took me to the radar site on top of Jebel Shams. Oman is a wonderful country, full of friendly people who always make you feel welcome.
      Have a nice day. Ma’asalama 🙂

  1. I am bias about those wind mills. They provide renewable energy which isn’t destroying the earth, but at the same time they impose a huge negative visual impact on any landscape. Your images show that impact. Great pictures and I particularly like the last one, contrasting the wind mills with the beautiful meadow with its yellow flowers.

  2. They are surreal looking out there in the sea. Yes, there are a lot of mixed feelings about these things! They do make for interesting photographs though.

  3. Two great shots and very different, David. I hear they’re very pretty at twilight, too, when they light up.
    I was on the front today and you now forget all about the windfarm because of the digging up the beach!

    • Thanks Jon. I have had a quick look at your blog and you have some very impressive images there. I am particularly taken with your portraits. I shall be coming by regularly.
