Long Straight Northumberland Road
Northumberland is blessed with roads that run along the lines of old Roman roads, and Drover tracks that tend to cut straight across the landscape. They seem to go on and on into the distance as can be seen here.
Normally it is quite hard to get an image of a road like this without another car in it, during normal hours but the recent bad weather has put a stop to the majority of non essential traffic.
The straight roads then tend to end in some form of bend complex and the all too often warning for motorcyclists.
These images were taken recently on a day when it was not too wet but still the grey skies dominate the images.
Wind farm Construction
My main reason for going down the road was to get some pictures of the wind farm construction that is going on near Sweethope Loughs
Fortunately I was able to get a few shots with the zoom lens.
The two yellow dots just infront of the smaller crane (above the 'm' of Tim) are people – which shows the size of these things.
Constructed Wind Turbine
When constructed they seem to lurk above the trees like some giant bird of prey.
I am sure we will get used to them in a few months time, but they certainly make a major statement on the landscape.
