View from a Windmill

This picture was taken from the top of the windmill that has since been dismantled and now lies at the mart

A scientist calling a “wind turbine” a “windmill”? Ashamed of you, Steve. (No offence meant, of course!)

[Bryan Rendall assured me that all the electricity produced by this device was used to grind corn, honestly...- Steven]

Explanation accepted, Steven. The distant sky certainly has "cornish" look to it...

Cornish? Not a pasty or a jar of clotted cream in sight.
Great pic though, Steven.
