Willy Lott's cottage, Flatford Mill
This was my second visit to this infamous scene of Turners 'The Haywain'. My first photographic record was made in dull conditions and flat lighting with little success. As I stood looking at the scene in shadow thinking I'm not going to be able to do any better this time a workman seeming to read my thoughts said 'The best time to photograph it is in about an hour or so when the sun comes through that gap.'
Time for a coffee and a look round the National Trust shop then. He had been right, soft sun rays side lit the cottage and I got my shot.
