Barcelona, a photo a day

Skywatch Friday in the wind


A celebration of wind energy was the main theme of this year’s Earth Festival, 2 weeks ago. So the organizers mounted a big…no idea what this is called… oh yeah: a pinwheel (thanks guys!) underneath the Arc de Triomf. And it was turning and humming in the wind… Here is a closer look, from behind.

This is for Skywatch Friday. Please click here to see other Skywatcher’s photos.

And yes, I missed the supermoon, and I’m extremely unhappy about it. Next time.

  3. Oh, I missed that! I live in Barcelona (I'm studying there) but on Earth Day I wasn't there.
    Beautiful photos of the Arc de Triomf with the pinwheel (I didn't know the word either).

    I’m visiting from SkyWatch Friday. Here’s My Sky.
    Regards.
