Hi Riet,
I just love the juxtaposition of the modern in the background with the windmill in the forefront.

The blue sky is amazing.

The windmill looks to be in excellent shape and is a lovely location, although it's interesting to see the modern building off in the background. It seems like the Netherlands has a lot of beautiful blue skies. What a great place to live.

Beter dan een ansichtkaart...;-)

Fijn weekend!

I will always love seeing great photos of windmills. And this is certainly that!

Scott said...

I love the dutch windmills. I just don't understand how they work. It looks like the wind would pass through those grids instead of turning them, but what do I know?
They still make wonderful photos.

Fantastic shots of the windmills and so different from what we see here.

Ann said...

Holland equals windmills. That;s what I learn when I was little.

Barb said...

This is exactly the scene I'll picture now when I think of the Netherlands. So picaresque!
