Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Friday Photo Blog - ENERGY

by Wife of Bath Sun Dec 4th, 2011 at 05:06:21 AM EST

So here's a photo blog taking a very liberal view of the subject of Energy. That's because my photo library hasn't provided enough in the way of "serious" energy examples, so there. But I'll begin with something sentimental and fitting to European Tribune:

front-paged by afew


And jump to a more modern version, this one in Austria:

Here we get a bit of energy from water, by Konigsee in very southeastern Germany:

then on to the USA, where we have the results of the energy of erosion:

and the harnessed energy of the Hoover Dam.

Here in the form of my granddaughter and her Aunt we have Youthful Energy:

and adding my daughter as well, we have "Out of Energy." (Told you I was being liberal with the topic.)

So, if you have the energy, let's see it. Thanks for your indulgence.

Display:
I'll start it off with a little horsepower (pony power?) with this cute brown creature in Wales.

Thanks. You know when I first saw the title I thougth "what the heck am I supposed to in this diary", but then I looked at your examples and I must say it is a great topic. :-)

1st two AREVA Multibrid prototype turbines in Bremerhaven, across the street from the Deutsche WindGuard large wind tunnel. We're facing the tripod foundation test.

Or perhaps the moon lander, i forget.

I still carry a 4cm raised scar on my scull from a dive made into a too shallow part of Lake Mead nearly 40 years ago. If I ever go bald I'll have a seriously frightening pate.
But now I live in a country with nearly 100% of its energy needs supplied by hydro, so live and let live.

Going to post a few more before heading to Mom-in-law's up north. Back Sunday afternoon.

Vacation energy; sail and motor boats on Lake Annecy.

Windmill, funded by philanthropist Moses Montefiore, built in Jerusalem in 1857.

It was not a success. According to Wikipedia

The mill was not a success due to a lack of wind. Wind conditions in Jerusalem could not guarantee its continued operation. There were probably no more than 20 days a year with strong enough breezes.
