These windmills stand on a small mountain ridge called Hundhammerfjell. Can be seen between Namsos and Rørvik in the middle of Norway, about 4 hours north of Trondheim. A  total of 17 mills  will produce about 48MW(Mega Watts). This project is estimated to a total cost of 640 million NOK ,or 110 million USD, or 77 million EUR.

  3. Good photos and a great way to make power. Instead of green it helps keep our skies blue.

  6. I LIKE seeing all these wind turbines. I wish we had more in Canada as I think it's our future. We have lots of wind here. ;-) Happy Sky Watch!

  7. Er det så masse vindmøller der oppe, altså? Lærerik blogg du har:) Og nydelige bilder - de under her var jo også helt råe! Ha ein fin helg!

  8. Fine bilder.
    Men vet ikke helt om jeg likte å ha de møllene utplassert sånn i naturen. De gjør jo godt nytte for seg, bevares, men det ser jo ikke så hyggelig ut da. Jeg ante ikke at vi hadde så mange samlet på et sted her i Norge. Hører liksom mer til i Danmark.
    Klatrer du i de også??

  9. Som perler på en snor???

    vel... i mitt distrikt gjennom noen tuneller sørover... diskuteres det spaltevis opp og ned om dette faktisk er "perler" i den norske naturen...

    Fantastiske blider igjen Ivar.

  11. Vakre bilder av noe som er litt sånn "uglybeautiful", men det spørs om ikke dette er veien å gå da...
    Likte det første bildet spesielt godt:)

  12. Utrolig vakre alle sammen! Favoritter er de alle! Men jeg tror nr 3 er et bittelite mikroskopisk hakk forran de andre;)

    Ha ei koselig helg:)

  18. Du burde ta deg en tur hit til Smøla, vettu. Her er det på dusin-vis av møller. Veldig mange delte meninger, men jeg synes de er litt majestetiske.

  19. Beautiful blue and fantastic shots! I like the second picture with the wonderful landscape.

  20. These windmills can look great on pictures, and are facinating constructions. But the tip of one blade are moving in more than 300km/h, and are massive bird-killers. They are a serious threat to white-tailed eagle and eagle owl. Specially when buildt dense in large numbers.

    Ivar - headerbildet ditt er i kveld sendt inn til TV2 sin værkonkurranse under tema dis. kanskje du kommer på TV i morra :)

  21. Hum...Etter å ha lest kommentaren din hos meg fikk jeg virkelig noe å tenke på. En sak kan ha flere vinkler. Skal bare se at jeg heretter mener noe annet.
    Bildene dine er i hvertfall tøffe.

  22. Beautiful photography as usual.

    I reintroduced Better Blog Writing today but have not been able to do much on it as I pulled a hamstring muscle.

  23. Hi Ivar, yes those wind turbines are popping up all over the world. They will be our next source of (visual) pollution.
    We have a lot of them in the states, and on the highways being transported to a hill I hope far away.
    Happy Skywatching.

  30. maybe windmills look like a crazy sight in the sky, obstructing the view, but the good they do to the environment given our heavy demands in this day age must surely compensate for their robotic look

  31. Beautiful sky and windmill shots.
    Nature thanks for alternative energy.
    Do you work in environment area?

  32. I should like those windmills, but I don't...visually.
    The skies are great, your photos are proffessional, anyhow I come back to check out what's new.
