Wind power

Rycroft, Alberta, 12-05-01 Cranes unload the sails for wind turbines from a rail car and transfer it to a truck at the Rycroft rail yards May 1. The Rycroft yard has been busy all spring unloading sections of wind turbines and storing them in a nearby field so they can be transported to their final destination, a wind farm near Tumbler Ridge, BC later this spring. The large turbines will provide renewable energy for the BC Hydro power grid. The sails each occupy two flat-bed rail cars when being transported by train. (Photo: Randy Vanderveen photography)

Recent work and apology

Photo Randy Vanderveen This llama appears to be trying to hide in plain sight in the dirtiest area of its paddock.

It has been awhile. I apologize for taking so long between posts.

Time just flies by and postponing for days turns into weeks and then months.

I will try and get back to posting on a regular weekly or at the most bi weekly basis.

Here are a few recent photos with captions but no comments.

Need for Speed

A little late with the posting for this week. Here are some photos from the World Jet Boat Marathon which had two days of races in the Grande Prairie area this past week.

The drivers and navigators of these boats have to have nerves of steel. I will try and get back on track next week.
