    1. 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. 🙂

      1. 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.

        David.

      2. 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. 🙂

    1. 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. Oh ..I live next to AL-Hootah cave if you remember it .. I am very glad to know that you had been in Oman and this is an honor for me …
        Have a nice day .. All the best Doctor David …

  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!

    1. 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.
