Tilting at Windmills ...

... well, photographing one anyway!

I needed a shot of a windmill for the summer scavenger hunt.  The only one remaining in Wiltshire is on the other side of the county and is too far to go for one photo.  However, today was my first day back teaching and I was at a school which is only 15 minutes drive away from the windmill so I had plenty of time to find it and photograph it before I came back home.










It's also 'hay bale' time again.  Here's a couple of photos taken on the drive home.  Not the best images as I couldn't get as close as I wanted and didn't have the correct lens with me!

    1. Yes, the first day back went well. All the instrumentalists had managed some practice during the holiday so we were off to a good start! It was a miserable start to the day, very foggy, but by mid morning it was bright sunshine and a beautiful blue sky.

  5. I agree with Kathy, that is a beautiful windmill. Well done on getting such good weather, the contrast with the blue sky is stunning. My favourite angle is the first photo, I also love the added interest of the clouds...
