"The Final Bow" by Phil Thomson IPA

This poor windmill has suffered the ravages of time and weather and has taken it’s final bow, never to work again.

I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.
