Thanks, everyone. Smile

Keith, I was puzzling about that until they explained it to me on that cold February day....Richard Wheeler, Fran Ashton, Paul Sutcliffe, and (I guess) Photographers.

I've been meaning to do something with it for some time, Rich. Dorset, Devon and Cornwall got in the way. Smile

Ian, never mind you coming to Dorset's me that needs to be coming your way!!! I've a hankering for a windmill......

Another beautiful shot - it's absolutely stunning!

25 May 2009 10:15PM

Rob_Taylor 14 661 5 Wales
25 May 2009 10:17PM
Exceptional, the mill is at the perfect angle to catch the light.
(I'd maybe like to see a bit more to the right so that the water/break in the reeds is on a third to balance the windmill)
Hard to improve on this though ... Smile

25 May 2009 10:22PM
Stunning image, Tony

That's a great point, Rob. As always, I really appreciate your advice.

LMAO at Paul remark !!!! A stunner of a shot Ian, larger than life. Reeds look absolutely gorgeous with that glow and the mill nicely sited on the left balances the whole frame. The sky looks like something out of blade runner tbh.

Every now and then an image just leaps out of the monitor and hits you between the eyes and this is one of them. A cracker of an image.
