Power cuts would mean I can't charge my model boat batteries, and thus no boating  >>:-(

Not all Bob.
Totally "unshopped".
It really does look that threatening when driving down that road. Almost impossible to avoid looking at it...especially when it's turning. Can't help but wonder how many "fender-benders" it's been resposible for.

Granted no photoshop, but how much zoom?  Was it taken from the corner of Cypress and Waterloo?  Big they might well be, but they are at least on the other side of the river, and on a spit of land that nobody has really found a use for.  Probably a lot easier to maintain than those planted offshore, too.

Oh dear....I forgot about you non-believers and conspiracy theorists!
No zoom used. It was taken as a full frame shot and the centre part cropped out and saved. Proportions etc. are exactly as are seen by any street user.
I quite resent some of the insinuations.
I just thought that at least some of you would find it "interesting". Don't know why I bothered now. BY.

No conspiracy theory, Bryan.  Just didn't remember it being that overpowering.  Even just cropping a full natural frame can introduce an unexpected perspective.  But they do say, "If you are going to have a thing to generate power, have a big 'un".
Big as it is, it isn't as scary as those little ones on top of the Solarium building on Blackpool prom.  When those things are at it in a strong wind and you are inside the building you are very, very aware that they are only a few yards away.

I like the little vertical ones that look like egg whisks whizzing away on top of the roofs of buildings.
