I like these things. For me they represent a good balance between responding to the energy needs of the world of mankind and ensuring that we don’t impact on the natural environment irreversibly. I know that they are not all that efficient, and I know that the access roads and the construction process impact the landscape but they are a temporary change to buy us some time. This one I photographed during our trip south but I often fly past the large field of them on the southern coast outside of Wellington. I find it fascinating that to look at the windmills produces a polarising response from people. Its either Love em or Hate em. The windmills seem to move in the same gentle motion in a howling gale as they do in a quiet breeze. They are a form of kinetic sculpture and enhance a landscape rather than destroy it.
