Imposing Presence

I guess there is no question that the wind turbines will dominate Gloucester’s landscape. Here is a shot of the construction crane at the site taken from Long Wharf on the west side of the Annisquam and Jones Creek, 2.65 mile away according to Google Earth.

  1. We may have to look at the wind turbines, but we can point our lenses elsewhere. I go clamming off Long Wharf, but I’m focused on the clams and little hopping mouse footprints. I think we’ll get used to the profile. Gloucester is scenic and industrial.

    One word: PHOTOSHOP

  3. I just hope they don’t Blow Gloucester out to Sea. I don’t have a sea worthy boat.

  4. We have some around here, way up in the PA mountains. I actually love the way they look. When you’re driving through the mountains and then you see them along the high ridges, they’re kind of mesmerizing.

    30 or more years ago there were a dozen or so big cranes along the waterfront. Prior to the “container ports” the frozen fish was hauled out of the holds of ocean freighters by Gloucester Island Crane Co. and others. By the way, Gloucester Island Crane’s motto was “If you can’t get it up, we can”.
