Hello Conrad.
A Beauty.! Lovely warm light and well composed.
Beesd is a well known place for me. We where camping there a few seasons. Never forget, Meri was 8 month pregnant, May 1972. Temp. 5C. we had to go home.

Your windmill has a much more romantic feeling to it than mine, I love the colour of the brickwork that is being highlit by the setting sun. NorahF

Oh, now, Norah, yours is really nice, too - just a bit far away, and I still think a closer crop would really improve yours. But as far as the light is concerned, I was just lucky to be there in the evening, before sunset, during the so-called Golden Hour, when the lights really nice. Thats all - nothing special about my shot, really, except for the really nice warm light. But thanks for your nice comment!

Excellent of those magic moments in photography when the next day you wish you had taken lots more pictures.
