First #snow of autumn #CityDailyPhoto #Bury #ScoutMoor #GreenEnergy
I awoke yesterday morning to see this sight on the distant hills. The glorious white wind turbines matched by snow and frost on the ground above Bury 10 miles away. I assume this is part of the wonderful Scout Moor wind farm which is actually 15 to 20 miles from where I took this photo in Manchester City centre! Scout Moor is an upland moor of peat bog and heather in the South Pennines, reaching a maximum elevation of 1,552 feet (473 m) at its peak, Top of Leach.
