Wellington Wind Turbine
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

The Wind Turbine is positioned in one of the more stunning viewing locations in Wellington. That’s hardly surprising given the need to site this Meridian Energy power generator in an exposed wind position with an unobstructed aspect to the prevailing winds.
The turbine is a short distance from Highbury and the Zealandia - The Karori Sanctuary Experience along a walking track which winds its way eventually to Red Rocks on Wellington’s south coast. But if you’re less aerobically inclined, just take a car from Wellington’s CBD to Brooklyn and turn right.
The Wind Turbine was installed on the top of a Brooklyn hill in March 1993 as part of a research project into wind power. It is often visible from many parts of Wellington and stands as an elegant reminder that wind power is both environmentally friendly and can add an unobtrusive feature to our hill-top landscapes.
