The serried ranks of unknown gravestones, the bonnet of the windmill, all clothed in quieted snow. A lovely but somber photo.

Mick, have a good trip?

Very nice winters scene. Glad the snow fell on Saturday morning and had all gone by Monday. Snow looks nice on photos but I am glad when its gone.

Neil, very good winter scene but I can't work out what appear to tombstones in such close proximity to the windmill. Where was your vantage point ?

That's lovely, Neil. Like Tom, I am amazed how the gravestones appear to be close to the windmill.

I was down the pad that runs from opposite the old Red Lion as was. The perspective is compressed making the stones look closer to the windmill. Just thought it was a different view to the usual windmill shots.

The Windmill is approximately 100 yards from the trees.

Nice shot - and nice use of zoom compression :)

Good shot Neil, nice to see a different angle on the windmill
