An offshore wind farm has been creating its own 'micro-climate' by stirring up air to create low-level clouds around its giant, spinning blades.
These stunning pictures show the mist caused by the spinning 40 metre blades of the turbines whipping up moisture from the surface of the sea at Scroby Sands near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.
Holidaymakers often walk around in bright sunshine on the beach while watching the mist envelop the £75m wind farm less than two miles offshore.
Each of the 60-metre turbines has three spinning blades which stir up the warmer air at sea level into the cooler and drier air above, creating the mists.
'The spinning blades whip moisture up into the air like giant egg mixers and sometimes these low cloud formations are made.
Emma Sharples, of the private weather forecasting service Weatherquest, said: 'Anything natural or manmade feature can create a micro-climate around itself.
'You do need some sort of movement in the air for mist or fog to form and this is what appears to be happening here.
'The warmer air from the sea containing moisture can create mist when it is mixed with the cooler, drier air above.
'However, the wind speed has to be just right. If is a really windy day it is not going to happen because too much wind will disperse it.'
