Around the pumping mill Hoekermolen at Nigtevecht (Netherlands) the gold coloured sunset complements the green meadows.
The Hoekermolen was used to keep the Hoeker polder dry and was in use until 1959, when the function was taken over by an electric pumping station.
To photograph the mill well at sunset, a good date had to be chosen. The smartphone app Exsate Golden Hour is used for this. The photo was finally taken in October.
