Hi Steve ~ sorry to hear about the ribs ~ surfing calmity I would guess? ~ You know it was quite dark when I took this windmill shot ~ this D700 makes the darkest night look like day ~ shot a cat in a coal shed and find it sort of thing! ~ the reason why it shows so much is that it is on my way home and I can't resist stopping every now and then to learn the parameters of my camera ~ I thought the crescent moon might be a nice touch ~ but of course the darn thing is soo small compared to the windmill ~ there are a couple of planets near to the moon at the moment too but....

get better mate

yep got crunched on the sandy bottom of a low tide but first accident so cant complain. i am getting a new DMC FZ 28 in the next few weeks so i have all over again a camera learning curve.

The map is gone! Really special photo with the windmill and the moon! Love the tiny bare trees in the distance and twilight.

Thanks for introducing yourself and stopping by my gallery!

Thanks Jean,

Yes it is the moon that sets it off, although it is so tiny you can hardly see its beautiful crescent ~ I'm glad to have met you ~ and many thanks for your kind words

Nick Weall on December 3, 2008

Hi Sam ~ you are great ~ thanks for adding this one to your favs ~ have you tripped across my little question to you ~ about what pushing the "Best of" button does? Have a good day and I met TIFF last evening too! Small world

Very beautiful picture with great colors and nice silhourettes.

Kind regards. Finn.

Nick Weall on December 4, 2008

Hello Finn ~ yes it is very handy having such a beautiful windmill on my route home - the journey takes about an hour and it is maybe halfway. Thank you very much for your compliments.

Nick, this is marvelous! All your windmills, remind me of Holand. (never been there yet)

Nick Weall on December 4, 2008

Hi Eleni well Holland is THE place for windmils alright - all that flat land and winds off of the sea. You'll get there one day I bet. Thanks for your compliment Eleni and have a good evening

eleni iak. on December 4, 2008
