“IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE LIVING LIFE IN PEACE.
YOU MAY SAY I’M A DREAMER,
BUT I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE.
I HOPE SOMEDAY YOU’LL JOIN US,
AND THE WORLD WILL BE AS ONE”

John Lennon

On a driving trip through Wyoming (USA), we saw these wind turbines.

A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind, also called wind energy, into mechanical energy; a process known as wind power. If the mechanical energy is used to produce electricity, the device may be called wind turbine or wind power plant. If the mechanical energy is used to drive machinery, such as for grinding grain or pumping water, the device is called a windmill or wind pump. Similarly, it may be called wind charger when it is used to charge batteries.

The result of over a millennium of windmill development and modern engineering, today’s wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range of vertical and horizontal axis types. The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging or auxiliary power on boats; while large grid-connected arrays of turbines are becoming an increasingly important source of wind power-produced commercial electricity.

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 9 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.
