Cley Windmill

By conrad  
Another from the North Norfolk Coast.

On holiday we did also spend a day in the Broads and saw some of the much more famous mills there, but the weather wasn't very photogenic and the Broads were further away from where we were staying than the north coast, so I concentrated on attractive locations along the north coast. And I rather liked this windmill in Cley-next-the-sea. Like so many windmills in my own country, it has buildings nearby, but I did find that there were ways to get some of the landscape in, or - like here - some boats and water. Unfortunately, I never got the exact weather conditions I was hoping for, but I rather liked this shot anyway - so here's my first shot of Cley Mill. Be warned, there may be more to come! Wink

Superb shot, reminds me of my own origins. Love the subdued light, kind of romantic.

Thanks, people!

And thanks for the mod, Stuart. I do feel that in lightening it this much, though, you seem to have lost an important part of the mood in the image as well, so I don't think I will be following your example, sorry. But interesting to see what happens when you do that!
