Fabyan Windmill

From Wikipedia:

"The Fabyan Windmill is an authentic, working Dutch windmill dating from the 1850s located in Geneva, Illinois. The 68 feet (21 m), five-story wooden smock mill sits upon the onetime estate of Colonel George Fabyan, but is now part of the Kane County Forest Preserve District."

 

As a kid growing up in Geneva and St. Charles, Illinois I remember always seeing this windmill but never honestly paying much attention to it. However, on my most recent trip back home I just knew i had to get a good shot of this windmill around dusk.

 

This image did provide a challenge for me and I don't think that I got it all the way right. The one light is still very blown out. Overall I am pleased with this shot but would love to attempt it again sometime soon.
