After being unwell last week, and not managing to do my shift at the windmill, I was happy to be able to return today. I took along my new camera, hoping for fine weather to take some nice photos of the building. Despite the odd break in the cloud, and being warm enough, the light wasn’t that great for photography. I took some anyway, and decided to post them.
They were all taken without any film simulation applied, and no post-processing. They are straight jpegs from the camera, shot on aperture priority at either f4 or f5.6. It occurred to me later, that this might look good in B+W, so I will try some of those another time. Given the small sensor size, I am very pleased with the amount of detail that this camera is able to capture. These are all full-size images, and can be clicked on to enlarge to full screen

The new cafe and community hall.
We had quite a few customers in the cafe this morning, but very few bothered to continue across to the windmill. As the summer holidays continue, we are hoping to get more visitors, at this peak time.
