That's a lovely picture... it just ticks all the boxes for me. :)

Are you aware of an eight sailed mill at Heckington in Lincolnshire?

It's between  Sleaford and Boston, Linclonshire, which is probably within range of an day-trip?

That photo is awesome, Karen, and I am not using the word lightly.That it is immaculately composed and framed is no more than we have come to expect from you. But it's the sense of scale and history and repose that makes this damn fine even by your standards.
Thank you for sharing.
Love and best,
Your Friend,
Langston.

Thanks, Richard. Lincolnshire is certainly within range for a day trip and that's an interesting looking windmill you've linked to. Definitely an idea for some time in the future.

Thank you, Langers.

I'm admittedly pleased with this one, but still think it could have been better although I suspect that won't surprise you in the least. :)

I'm not a Photography buff by any means, but for me the colour of the sky makes it appealing!

Of course not. Complacency is not something I associate with you.

If you were going to shoot it again, what might you do differently?

What an amazing picture Karen, the lead-in of the path is good, while the gate stops you from wanting to look further, and the sky is superb. captured brilliantly.  :flowers:

The time of day and weather conditions were one of the reasons I was there when I was. Sunset skies can look fantastic, but they also need something of interest against them.

If you were going to shoot it again, what might you do differently?

I set out to attain a composition that's somewhat different to all the other shots of Heage windmill I've seen, which I think I've achieved. It was my first visit to the windmill though and I'd liked to have had the time for a more comprehensive exploration of the area than the limited time sunset conditions last allowed.

That is magnificent Karen,  :yup:

It would make an excellent desktop if it were horizontal, but that would spoil the lovely structure of the shot,

you'll be doing photos for calendars at this rate, :tup:

Thanks, 'Vonne.

I did also take some landscape shots, but the portrait composition was my favourite.

Knowing sod all about composition, I think I prefer the landscape version...........I just like the windmill to the left and the sun to the right..........it sort of 'does it' for me....and of course I saved it for use.

'Technically' the landscape version is the better composition (marginally), but which people prefer is obviously a matter of personal taste. Both were uploaded simultaneously as I couldn't, initially, decide between them and both will be remaining in situ for the time being.
