Photo a Day Challenge - Day 142 Technology

I am constantly amazed as to how technology is working, both domestically and in the industrial world. In some ways, I wonder if "we're just playing god" in the many ways we can manipulate the weather, and can cast additional UV light, and heat, onto playing surfaces so as we can extend (or bring forward) a playing season to suit our needs...

This is no more evident than in Europe (mainly, although the same technology is used here at home in Australia) where the use of lighting booms on playing surfaces, in order to promote the active growth of the turf so as the shading from the large grandstands is counteracted. Here we see the lighting booms in use at K.A.A Ghent, in Belgium.
