DGJ_3873 - Pubnico Harbour Lighthouse & Wind farm

PLEASE, no multi invitations, glitters or self promotion in your comments. My photos are FREE for anyone to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks - NONE OF MY PICTURES ARE HDR.

 

Most of the pictures I am posting are of lighthouses, since a 1000 of them have been declared surplus by the Federal Government many may not be around much longer. Some have already been taken down and are gone forever.

 

A 17 turbine wind farm on the southern portion of Pubnico Point, West Pubnico, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia generates approximately 100,000,000 kW/hr of electricity annually, enough to power 10,000-13,000 average Canadian homes per year. The power will be sold to Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI).

    Excellent! Very Nice! The wind farms are very much needed! I just went thru west Texas and saw two wind farms there. They are pretty cool!!!!

    Love these, and the way the wind turbines contrast to the old lights. I am so sorry for the annhilation of the old lighthouses, and it has become a forbidden subject within my family. Unfortunately, a couple of members are a part of the offending department; I have wondered why the lighthouses, or at least a representative portion of them, can't be transferred to Heritage or Parks, and then protected and preserved? [the other side just says they aren't necessary as automation will take care of the need; not the cultural need, though, I retort.] Of course, same could be said for old train stations, original post offices [where they haven't already been replaced by those brick atrocities], grain elevators... and so on. Hey, I've an idea: instead of prisons, why not just a work term as lighthouse keepers [ not that offenders would be up to the task]? Oh dear - thanks for preserving them in this way, at least.

    A skyline we are seeing more and more around the world - one 'industrial' development that does not ruin outdoor beauty (visually, as well as environmentally).

    Excellent captures!
