Turbine and Platform


Turbine and Platform, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Circling the Beatrice No 1 Wind Turbine, with the Alpha and Bravo Beatrice Platforms in the background, flaring some major gas.

Strangely enough Ruth and I saw (and photographed) one of the Beatrice platforms being towed through the English Channel in the summer of 1979 as we returned from Normandy form our Honeymoon.

Spooky.

I took this shot at sundown the 4th of November in the Moray Firth, on a trip out to the wind farm with some Hong Kong based energy specialists.

Blast those dirty windows and reflections in the perspex. Now I know why they take the doors of helicopters when taking serious aerial shots.
