Yes, some times I get to do cool things. Scouting a wind farm was part of a recent project and – let’s just say, these babies are even cooler up close. I have scouted turbines in the past (from a distance) and they were mesmerizing then, but when you get to be so close and go inside and be on top of one, your appreciation and respect for the scale of them goes to a new level. The latter wasn’t on my bucket list but I summarily added it, and then crossed it off.The engineering and design (inside) is incredible. And yes, the view from the top was crazy. It was a clear sky this day and I could see for about fifty miles in every direction. Safety first, as you can see, climbing helmet, ample harness, and eye gear are all in play.
Love when the light pierces the turbine and blade shadows happen.
Later in the day and the light was – amazing. There was plenty of gawking.
