Lytham St Annes Windmill at Sunrise

#354 on EXPLORE on June 1st.


I actually took this back in December 2005 on my way into work when I worked in the town. The sun was coming up over the sea and I spotted the image in my rear-view mirror, slammed on, and took 3 shots in RAW mode to get the one here. Since then, on Community Webshots, it made "Photo of the Day" and "Album of the Week" (another site I use) and the photos there have been downloaded world wide nearly 46,000 times now. It generated 250 comments on this image alone.


The muted green of the grass sits nicely against the orange glow of the sunrise.


I thought it was time I posted it on here.


Oh, and btw, it was featured on "Granada Reports" our regional news programme on the television (ITV) as one of their "Photo's of the Day" too..
