Windmill on a misty morning

Sorry I've been absent recently. I've just been so busy and I have so much catching up to do, but I was incredibly excited to get into the top twenty last week. It was my first time, so thank you to everyone who helped to put me there.

Today I took Ellen to the airport to catch her plane to Morocco, where she is doing her gold Duke Of Edinburgh expedition - four days of hiking, carrying all their tents, cooking equipment and food with them. She was quite apprehensive because she only met her group at the airport for the first time, but I'm sure she'll be fine. Anyway she had to be at Gatwick for 4.30 in the morning and it's a four hour drive from where we live, so we came down last night and stayed in a hotel. This was the scene I came across as I was driving back to the hotel after dropping her off.
Lovely shot, the sheep really add to it

Love it - the tree seems to mirror the windmill.

@dh that's great - not rushing you at all, just worried that you may have missed it because you don't seem to have been around for a few days. Look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Ethereal! The mist in the background is a perfect backdrop to the two sheep who are obvious posing for you!

This has so many interesting pieces in the composition that it looks like you put it all together! The fog, the windmill, that fabulous tree . . . but the sheep posed and looking at you win!
