Irelands Wind Energy through the Camera Lens

The Irish Government’s target is for 40 per cent of energy produced in Ireland by 2020 to come from renewable sources.

Wind Energy has emerged as one of the cleanest, safest and cost effective forms of energy. It is claimed by lobby groups “Wind energy could provide 30,000 new jobs by 2020” – good news? I took a series of Landscape Photographs earlier this year up around the North of the Country. My Images incorporate the Wind Farms in this area with there Turbines resting on Poles up to 80 meters High nestled in the Beautiful Country Side of Co Cavan ,Co  Fermanagh and Co Leitrim. I used two Cameras for the Project my Nikon D2x and my Nikon D3. All the images were taken using two camera lenses my AF VR Nikkor 80-400mm ED and my AF micro Nikkor 105 2.8 D. All the images were shot in Camera Raw.I have chosen a selection of 12 landscape photographs to upload  to accompany this post .
