Albany Windfarm

Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook you may have seen that I've posted a fair few photos of Albany Windfarm recently. As of writing this I have less than a week left of living here in Albany so I have wanted to go out more than normal and take photos around the area. Although I've got many places to go I always seem to be drawn to the windfarm, and I've gone there for sunsets, an attempt to view meteorites and with family.

It's a pretty pretty location.

So without further ado here are some of my favourite new photos of the windfarm. Remember, you can click on the images to make them larger.

There's more than just wind turbines at the farm with spectacular views of the sea both from the top of the sea cliffs or the bottom...


...As long as you can make it down the stairs.


Those blades are 35 metres long...


...While the towers are 65 metres tall. If that's hard to comprehend, check out the size of that door.


I took a lot of these shots with a fixed 50mm lens (75mm equivalent) which I think helped me come up with some different angles.


One night there was a meteorite shower. On that night I was able to spot 2 meteorites, and there may be a third one in this shot (the small diagonal line).



The Bibbulmun Track passes between the cliffs and the turbines.


The aforementioned door.


The windfarm, as seen from Mt Clarence. The water at the bottom of the picture is that of Princess Royal Harbour with the open sea on the other side of the hill.


Hopefully I'll be able to get out more this week, just to different places.
