Chesterton Windmill, Warwickshire
Chesterton Windmill is a 17th century cylindric stone tower windmill with an arched base, located outside the village of Chesterton, Warwickshire. It is a Grade I listed building and a striking landmark in South-East Warwickshire.
Whilst this iconic location has been photographed countless times, wander around the surrounding fields or the windmill itself and you can always come up with a new composition, it looks good from every angle! It's a location that's suitable for a variety of photographic styles, clearly great for landscape photography but also due to the lack of light pollution in the area star trails and lightpainting. It's a location that changes with the seasons; a snow covering looks fantastic in winter, whilst the crops in the summer can really add to the shot. It's perfect for lowlight and sunset shots at all times of the year. However I do enjoy summer evenings shooting at Chesterton. This is a very popular location with photographers so prepare for it to be busy! Great place to meet up with fellow photographer mind you.
This is most definitely one of those must visit locations for any landscape photographer and I'm sure a good backdrop for model shoots as well, you will always come away with a good shot!
