Hello TL friens!

Again in the south of Gotland, in Näsudden...
At Näsudden in south-west Gotland lies Sweden's largest windfarm. From there one can also see Sweden's first offshore windfarm.

Gotland's central position in the Baltic provides the islanders with a neverending natural resource - the wind. Wind power has been put to use on Gotland for many years and at one time over 500 traditional windmills provided power for the island's communities. Considering the global environmental advantages that this clean energy source provides windpower is destined to become an increasingly valuable resource in the future. Today more than 2000 households on Gotland own shares in wind turbines through local wind energy co-operatives.


-At the beginning of 2000 there were over 130 wind turbines installed on the island.
-Total energy production from wind power on Gotland is around 130 GWh / year.
-Electricity production by windpower corresponds to around 15% of Gotland’s consumption.
-Näsudden wind farm consists of 80 windpower stations with an installed effect of c:a 40MW.

Thanks for visiting.
Have a great weekend!

Wonderful colours, composition and silhouets in this photograph. Well done.
Greetings from Holland,

minunata imagine, excelent titlu :)
pare ca acolo unde oamenii se preocupa de protectia mediului, natura le intoarce inzecit bucuria.
felicitari, numai bine.
a da, micuta carcoteala: cinci punctulite verzi (reflexie in obiectiv ?) deasupra celei de-a doua mori din dreapta.

The sky is what really makes this pop! And of course, those clouds means that there is a light wind to power those turbines: so it becomes a photo with a message!
Superb work through and through!

Hello Mihaela,
very nice shoot, wonderfull combination of colours,
mult frumoasa :)!!



very nice sunset with wonderful colors
beautiful image...
well done.. :)

merveilleux ce ciel, des couleurs en dégradé de toute beauté, bonne luminosité, dommage que les éoliènes envahissent un peu ce bon pov, bravo et merci

like a science fiction shot about the war of the worlds...if i remember correctly...
challenging sky with the low horizon and the windmill silhouettes amply balancing and supporting
a few tiny flares could be eradicated ..
note is very interesting as this form of power generation will accellerate in the coming decades..its a pity because i have seen them in countries where they are manifest and the whole effect is ugliness..
enough is enough..

Bonjour Mihaela
Très beau ciel, belles couleurs et bonne composition avec ces éoliennes qui se détachent bien

Very tasty photo.Very well taken.

Hi Mihaela,
Very beautiful photo.Congratulation.
Best regards,


That is one great shot! The sky is peaceful and the clouds are amazing. The windmills at the bottom add to the overall details, but also does not divert the viewers focus towards the nice sky. Well done!
