Snow shower approaching Ben Aketil wind farm
The photograph shows turbines 1,2 and 3 plus the control building at the wind farm. Beyond is a rapidly approaching snow shower. As the shower arrived, the speed of the turbine blades increased dramatically, as did the 'whoosh, whoosh' sound of the blades cutting through the air.
