Let There Be Light! by wordpixman

Let There Be Light!

These magnificent sculptural additions to our landscape are not only (in my mind, at least) a great art form but also offer a glimmer of hope that future generations may enjoy the level of light and electrical power that our generation has squandered so freely, when our reckless rape of the planet and its fossil fuel reserves has succeeded in bringing about a new age of darkness.

To those who oppose them, all I can say is "Honi soit qui ... " ( you know the rest of it! )

End of rant for today; I feel better now! 
Oh so true.....fav

Magnificent image Arthur. I totally agree about the "art" element of the wind power skyline. We are all entitled to a "rant" now and again! I love the treatment given to this photo.

Completely agree 150%! The way you've caught the gleam on the blades is fabulous. We are stewards of our world and MUST NEVER FORGET, because if we do, ????? Fav.

My question for those opposed to fracking (for natural gas): How cold will you have to be in the winter before you'll change your opposition?

@rhoing ... Another, even more important question is "When will the world's governments make a start on reducing air travel to more sustainable proportions instead of constantly opening new airports to increase the rate of depletion of non-renewable fossil fuels to further pollute the atmosphere?
The current population's selfishness is hastening the end of this planet, leaving nothing for those yet to be born.

First, I love your photo. Unfortunately, I have to confess that my son and I once drove to a wind farm in California to take photos of the turbines--using fossil fuel to take pictures of energy saving. . . ? Somehow, we didn't see the hypocrisy! I agree that we need to look to alternative energy sources--and start with our own lifestyles.
