Scenic Sunday

For Scenic Sunday I chose these two photo's I made in August on a beautiful sunny day. This scene with the windmills is in Rotterdam, one of Hollands biggest cities.The river is called the Rotte.

 

 
For more scenic Sunday photo's go here. There is a list of all the participants.

Oh Riet!
I love these windmills. I think of all the things that I look at pictures of, I love the windmills most of all. The reflection of the happiness is captured in the water, and it looks so laid back and easy, in a happy sort of way.

I just love it. Thank you so much for sharing.

Country hugs...Sherry

Beautiful shots, Riet! I just love windmills. I especially love the reflection of the first one with the orange awnings. Such a tranquil scene! I am originally from Holland, but maybe I have told you that already.

Riet,

It looks as though those windmills are sitting on top of the houses? Are they?

Absolutely beautiful!

Mooie foto's van molens! Bedankt voor je bezoek en comment. Jammer genoeg woon ik niet in Barendrecht, maar wel in de buurt! Ik woon in Krimpen aan de Lek, vlakbij de molens van Kinderdijk, waar ik natuurlijk vaak over geschreven heb.Leuk je ontmoet te hebben!

Wat een apart gezicht is het toch en wat mooi om de wereld vanaf het water te bekijken. Ik ken de omgeving daar goed, maar op deze manier geeft het toch weer een heel ander beeld. Leuk! Dank je dat ik even mee mocht 'varen'.
Volgend voorjaar verschijnt er bij ons een molenboek over alle molens van de Hoeksche Waard, compleet gefotografeerd en geschreven in onze opdracht door Sylvia (Villa Extra). Je kent haar foto's, ik heb ze reeds in mijn bezit en het manuscript is nagekeken. Het ziet er werkelijk fantastisch uit! Gaat echt een topper worden.
Fijne dag nog!
Lieve groet, Marja

Prachtig Riet, de molens aan de Rotte, heerlijke foto's weer op een zonovergoten dag. Molens blijven altijd mooi om te bekijken. Ze steken zo fraai af tegen de horizon.

Lieve groet Josephine
