Land of the Giants

054I knew these puppies were big because I saw a blade on a semi bed, but they seem to shrink in size once they are placed at a distance in the wide open places. To get a perspective of size, look at the poles that support electrical wires – on the front, right side of the photo.

It seems like our naked eye can do a pretty good job of seeing perspective and judging size because we see in 3-D and observe movement. Getting correct perspective of size with a camera is more difficult. I got a lot of practice on our trip to the prairie, the mountains, and the ocean. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t – all a part of learning and always fun.

These were in northern Oregon, close to the Columbia River. For more fun exploring how size matters, visit the Two Cent Tuesday Challenge at:

  1. I once saw one that had fallen. That was awesome. In Germany, farmers rent land to put them up, but they have to be out in a field, nowhere near buildings, roads, or anything else that wouldn’t stand what is essentially an oversized jumbo jet engine falling on it.

    • I didn’t hear any noise when I was around them. I don’t know what the flap is all about – especially since other forms of energy production have their down sides, too.
