Like so many others I have been watching Comet Panstarrs in the last few days. Tonight I decided I wanted to have a special image. So I did a reconnaissance this morning to find a good spot to combine the comet with the world famous windmills of Kinderdijk.

This is the result of my efforts.

A high resolution version is here:

And here is a video showing the comet setting over the windmills:
