Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree completely with Jerome on this. I took the train from Kyoto to the west coast of Japan a couple of years ago, and, across an enormously long lake (Ban, I think), there was a huge, gleaming white, graceful wind machine. It looked like it belonged just as much as the egrets in the rice paddy canals.

In October I was driving in central Washington state, and, across the Columbia River, there was a double array of turbines with the blades turning in random orientations. It was a magnificent sight.

The normal operating sound is sort of soothing. Can't wait to get one or more of "my own".
