This Windpower Wednesday Photo of the Day by Jason Blackeye captures turbines on Mount Panachaiko, Greece. There are 57 turbines in all, standing more than a mile above the Gulf of Patra and the city of the same name at the north end of the Pelloponese.
Jason (Iasonas Mavrommatis in Greek) is a web and graphic designer who lives in Patra and does web and logo design as well as photography and video.
It must have taken some doing to get this shot, as Panachaiko is listed on the site Dangerous Roads with this message: “The road to the summit, located in Achaea region, east of Patras, on Peloponnese’s northern part, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The summit is also known as Vodias. It’s home to the country’s largest wind farm, with 40 generators, which opened in 2006, and two communications stations. Expect fog and snow in winters.”
We’re glad he made the trek!
The wind farm is one of Jason’s favourite subjects, but his portfolio and galleries on Instagram, flickr, Unsplash and other sites also feature many images of Greece and other landscapes showcasing his graphic designer’s eye for colour and composition. Jason has also been selected as one of Life of PIX’s Photographers of the Week.
