Photographer's Note

These wind turbines stand on the north side of the harbour at Blyth in Northumberland, together with two much larger versions, about a mile offshore.

I wanted to capture the movement of the blades by using a long exposure, but as I was setting my tripod for this shot, this particular turbine slowed almost to stopping - look carefully at the others in the distance, and you'll see their blades are turning much faster. As it happens this shot turned out better than some of my later images (to be posted soon) - the blades on the other turbines were spinning so fast, they've hardly recorded on the film during the 10 or 15 secend exposures required.

I set up this shot using the dumped rubbish to add foreground interest - not a particulary pretty image, but I think it helps create the 'industrial' atmosphere I was looking for.
