Phil George’s lovely windmill images from 3 August received 31 ‘likes’ and was the most popular facebook post of the month.
Phil wrote: “Finally, after many visits over the last few years, I got the skies I wanted over Chesterton Windmill, Warwickshire”.
However as he posted 3 images, lovely as they are, we cannot give Phil the single image accolade.
