Morning Dave.This windmill looks like a Doctor Who set.They could find much worse locations.Do you think a Nikon D200 would suit a keen amateur?

Hi Dave. Yes, the D200 would be an ideal buy. I'd recommend signing up with us at www.shutternutters.co.uk too. You'll get lots of help and advice there :-)

The graveyard is Behind the church at the top of Haigh Village. I've had a couple of happy hours reading those old stones and wondering about who they were and where they lived.

You should all download google earth. Its incredible!
Theres a tick box in that where the shutternutter guys have placed their photo in its geographical context because they loaded it into Panoramio.

Was this photo taken by a paramotor or a Light plane?
