Harnessing the Wind

Wind farms seem to generate not only energy but also controversy.

The Albany wind farm is at the top of a high cliff with a magnificent beach at the foot of it.  It is a popular surfing spot, although known for the presence of sharks.

We went out there on a windy day so the surf was running and the wind was whistling through the giant propellors of the turbines.

To me the wind farm seems quite majestic, but others seem to think it is a blot on the landscape.
