This energy self sufficient house and shop complex is just next to the boat that's in a bit of a bad way.

Maybe it is the recycled boat to go with the house? These days an energy, self sufficient house is the way to go...

very good shot, have you taken the colour out of the sky ?

@Alun Lambert: No, it really was that dull. I've upped the contrast a fair bit though. Should have done a bit of work on that mast now I look again.

yes i see the effects, the boat and the windtown, le mat du bateau et les eoliennes d'ou confusion avec les deux !

@Veronelle: I'm a bit cross with myself that I wasn't more careful and observant. So busy looking at what was happening in the sky and trying to get back to what I felt I saw, rather than what the camera recorded, yet missing what was happening to the light levels on the masts. Back to the drawing board, or rather the software package.

@dj.tigersprout: Funny you should say that DJ. It was an interlude between showers in the morning.

Splendid shot grouser, that's a real storm brewing up there. I think we'll be seeing more and more windturbines in the next few years.

What type of flag is that, BW cross....?

@Observing: Puzzled me when I first saw it. It's the Cornish flag.

Very interesting concept - I wonder how long it will take before we see something like that out here. It looks a really intriguing building.
