Wind farm developers using ‘tricks’ to make turbines look smaller
Wind farm developers make turbines look smaller than they actually are when applying for planning permission in order to ‘trick’ councils into giving them the go-ahead, a leading architect has warned.
What is this nefarious trick? Using 50mm lenses to take pictures of wind turbines. 50mm lenses are also known as normal lenses (on 35mm cameras). Anything shorter than 50mm is considered a wide-angle lens and anything longer is considered a telephoto.
So the complaint seems to be that wind farm developers are using normal lenses. How awful! But when you run out of real controversies, I suppose a fake one will do.
