A swaying field of yellow under stormy skies at Chesterton windmill in Warwickshire. I've been wanting to do a shot like this for a while now, with the foreground a sea of movement... I also shot images during lulls in the wind and with higher iso, so I have the same foreground a lot more stationary too but personally I preferred the movement. Interested to hear opinions on that, reckon it works?

When I arrived at the location, I was almost shaking with excitement as the rain was just beginning to give way for some pretty special light. I ended up getting gradually soaked though and had to work really hard to keep my kit dry and lens free of spots of rain, but it was fun running around the field looking for angles as the light continued to change. I missed a brief rainbow unfortunately, it crept up behind me and by the time I got to a place with a decent foreground it had gone again. Ah well, another time maybe!

Blend of 2 exposures. (*edit - I should mention the blades of the windmill have not turned for over 100 years).

It's already a wonderful picture with a great composition, and beautiful light and colors, but the long exposure just puts it over the top. Very well done this is so incredible!
