The Chance Of A Meltdown... by no-soap-was-harmed The Chance Of A Meltdown... by no-soap-was-harmed
...at the Albany Windfarm is zero.
They're really handy like that.

180 degrees at the Sandpatch, Albany Western Australia.
There's that pink again but what's a photographer to do eh?

Good point.

I'm awake early most morning but not to the point I go out to see the sunrise. Maybe one morning I will manage it.

I did see the path...I would walk it! I love walkin'!
Is a bush walk off the path, meaning no wooden platform? or some other
strange term I am not familiar with? :giggle:

the platform is just the lookout and steps down to the beach, it doesn't run the whole way :lol:
you don't have bushwalks? [link] what do you call them?

I think we call them "trails". We don't have any THAT long. We do have a series of what we call "rails to trails", where they tore up the railroad tracks, paved the lane and now people ride bicycles on them for miles. They are not rugged or dirt tracks. This track you have...looks like an adventure, I would give it a whirl...as long as I had a guide that could ward off wild animals and people. :giggle:

Yes, yes, your walk trails and nuclear stockpile and national debt are much bigger than anyone else's and certainly don't belie any kind of embarrassing Freudian preoccupations you don't have :pat:

hippies are generally considered safe as long as you're upwind of them.
it's a good idea to stay out of the way of a lot of the snakes.

Gettin' better at being funny?
I hope so :eager:
You would have loved to have been here bloke, i originally was following a mob of roo's before dawn that i hoped to include in a shot with the windmills just to show the world what a proper hippie electricity production plant should look like, when i saw that this cloud formation in the south was gonna rock and it just lit up a minute before sunrise.
Can't describe the real life luminance of that 100 degrees or so of pink southern ocean. nearly got bloody religion. i did get momentarily angry at the thought of any fuckwit ever risking a coastal stretch like this with the worst radioactive isotopes it's possible to produce. maybe i will get to shoot someone one day who tries? funny bloke, i have thought before about one of those fans flying off and hitting somebody that desperately deserved it in the face. :D
this pano is shot in the portrait position at 18mm so scale is distorted but each of those fan blades is 35 meters or about 110 feet long.
we should line em up, it would be awesome.

Yeah, getting better at the funny, too! :lol:
Sounds like a perfect moment, or collection of moments. I am glad you were there to capture that for the rest of us. I saw a show just the other day about the giant wind farms the Finns have just off the coast. Pretty impressive. I saw many of them in Europe, too. I can't imagine the stupidity of the complaints about the wind mills. Mind-blowing, really. Free power or three-eyed fish.
It's a no-brainer, even for the no-brainers.

we're talking about people that store spent nuclear fuel rods, above reactors, that they build in earthquake zones, directly on the coast, in the path of any subsequent tsunamis Chris. i've done a bit of time in the psych ward and straight up, that's the most bizarre story i've ever been told.
you couldn't make it up if you were eating three square meals of:iconmushroomplz: a bloody day.
i owe a huge debt of gratitude to all the hippies in Australia that have gone absolutely fucking mental whenever one of our politicians periodically suggests nuclear power.
as a country we produce a lot of carbon and other greenhouse gasses and that needs to change but at least we aren't giving our grandkidstothepowerofforever our radioactive waste to look after.
Ya know?

I can dig it. Everyone here is really starting to give the people that run these things some serious shit about the way they do business. Maybe some good could come out of this. Maybe.
I tried to explain to my boys what the problems are in Japan, and they thought I was making it up. I guess we're raising our own little hippies! :D
