The Mill Run

Posted by mervfrench on October 21, 2009

Went for a  drive this evening to see what I could find and I came back with this. It wasn’t really what I set out to get but that happens .

I have a pano of this but I think the single shot is better.

I’ve spent some  time tied on to the top of these windmills changing bearings and oil etc but I’m glad I don’t do it now ,  I think I’ve lost my nerve a bit anyway..

If it’s a calm day and you want some wind to blow  just climb up a windmill and the wind will appear instantly

I suspect Dave Bettini would know what I mean about that.

    A nice looking image here Merv, got to love a windmill in the Australian landscape. thi one’s nice and moody, the windmill blur adds to the atmosphere.

    Now dumb question, how do you get to use the smaller image in your blog and yet move to the bigger version in the link from the smaller image in the blog?

      Yep clear as mud that question Matt.

      I think I know what you mean. When you upload an image after it takes you to the next page were you insert it into the post make sure you tick ” link to image” It should stay ticked once you’ve done it for all your next post’s .

      I think that’s right. Hope the answer was as clear as the question.

      Good luck with the blog.

    mate are you turning to the dark side. Very stylized, but in a nice way, nice and sharp. By Jove’s we might have a photographer on our hands!! You are definitely getting better mate. Looking forward to the adulation your going to get at the pizza night.
