Sunset over old windmill
.

This tired old "Eureka" windmill was living for several years on rural grazing land at the base of Mount Aitken (visible in the background), until the land was acquired for residential development. At the time the photo was taken, the bearings had seized and parts of the wheel had fallen off. It was demolished in April 2006. This particular location is now part of someone's 500-something square metre residential block.
