Looking across the Solway Firth to Scotland. An offshore wind farm is just visible in the distance.

  1. Very very nice, pity about the wind farm though…

      Wind farms in this country are like a bad rash. I’m all for sustainable energy but they keep putting them up in some of the most beautiful parts of the country.


      • I agree, love that they are doing it, but as a photographer who loves landscapes….. 😦
        Not so much here in Sweden yet, but the plans are big, so I guess we’ll come to the same frustration, which are sad, and good at the same time…..

    Impressive! I love all these horizontal lines. One enters the picture through the foreground curve, and then it’s only horizontal up to the sky (and including it).
    I don’t really agree about the wind farm in this picture. It is the only verticality , their pale grey is not shocking that far away, but on the contrary emphazises the horizon .

      Thank you, I’m glad you like the picture. I’m quite undecided about the wind turbines. I think they do add a vertical contrast to the dominant horizontal lines but in a very subtle way. When I composed the image I was more interested in the small stream leading the eye in to the picture and I think that worked out well. Thanks again for commenting.
