Kelly and I recently spent a few days in Torquay which is a couple of hours from Melbourne, along the coast. It was a great holiday and chance to relax, read, go to the beach, sleep in and of course take plenty of photos.

Driving back to our accommodation ‘South Beach Haven B&B (which we highly recommend due to the beautiful accommodation, lovely hosts and incredible breakfasts!), we passed this picturesque windmill which was set atop a hill and overlooking acres of farmland. We’re always looking for new places to visit with interesting and beautiful landscapes and Australia is the perfect place for that!

We knew that we had to come back to the windmill at sunset to take some photos – and despite the wait for the light to fade, and we certainly weren’t disappointed!┬áThe rich warm tones of the fading sun along with the deepening shades of purple and blue of the gathering dusk made for a beautiful backdrop for the windmill and farmland.

Here are three photos we wanted to share with you of the evening as we prepared to welcome in 2012. Happy New Year!
