Photos taken during VHF NFD 2009

The location was a few miles to the north of Rochdale, some 475m asl in the new location on Scout Moor Windfarm..  We are very grateful to all concerned in obtaining the special permission to be on-site which is normally closed for vehicle access.

Very impressive being so close to the turbine (#25) with it's 65m tower and 40m blades - which at least provided good protection for us against lightning.  Very quiet with just a gentle 'whoosh' when the blade passed overhead - just like being by the sea shore.

Usually wet and windy we managed this time to have some quite nice weather - apart from getting a bit wet on Friday.  Any storms that did appear in the area thankfully passed harmlessly to either the west or east of us.

Dx conditions were quite good on Saturday but unfortunately dead on Sunday
