Ballybay Wind Farm, Tullaroan, County Kilkenny, is home to a new wind farm owned by Renewable energy company Gaelectric.

The Location is one of the most beautiful that county Kilkenny has to offer, hidden in the hills near GrangeGrag and the Tipperary Boarder, it offers views of the lower lands towards kilkenny city and the mountain of Slievenamon, county Tipperary.

I am never sure about the impact that wind farms have on our Landscape, being a photographer and in love with my local landscapes some would assume that people like myself would be set against them. However now that this new wind farm is almost complete and having visited a few time, I find a kind of beauty and fascination with it.

The day I filmed this video the weather offered some great light, the fast moving clouds changed the areas of sun light and shade very quickly and I loved the cows grazing in the field below the wind turbines.

With this video I just wanted to share the visual effects it is having and If anyone wants, I would love to get some opinions as to what others feel ?

  1. My feelings are mixed as well, but I would rather see the wind farms than other power sources. We used to live near a huge wind farm, and I have to say that we got used to them.

    Love the music you chose for the video!

  3. I know that people respond in many different ways to these windmills. I love them and see them as huge dancing flowers moving peacefully, rhythmically across the landscape. They also carry hope for the survival of the planet. I find the music you chose very fitting
