We arrived at the Flinders Ranges and spent the afternoon just exploring this astonishing landscape. As the day rolled on the clouds rolled in and my hopes for a sunset faded away. Hour by hour and then eventually minute by minute.
What I was hoping for, what I had wanted was an opportunity to photograph that quintessential Australian windmill. It was a shot that had starred a leading role in my bucket list of photos for a long time.
As my hopes for a good sunset were rapidly disappearing I was becoming increasingly impressed with the opportunities I was seeing - WINDMILLS!
The day was over and the sky was cloudy, dull and boring and my expectations were at an all time low. I drove back to a windmill i'd found just down the road from our accommodation and waited patiently.
Then - with sunset approaching fast my fortunes quickly changed and the inconceivable became the extraordinary.
In front of me me was everything i'd hoped for.
