A digital painting of ‘The Sun Sets on Times Gone By in Norfolk’ showing the sun setting on the age of windpower.
Photomanipulation by Whistler’s Rainbow in DAP plus Gimp.
I used to live in this village, running the village pub (The Nelson Head) and took dozens of photographs of the windmill during this time.
