Stunning image, Ginnie! I love that dark, foreboding sky. Yet, your processing expertly sets off the windmill!
Ginnie Hart: I listen to so much going on in the world these days, Elizabeth, and wonder what we would do without Hope! Thank you.
So cool. Looks like a watercolor painting.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Hollie.
What an awesome storm cloud... yet the details on the windmill are bright and crisp....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: You're reminding me, Peter, that there is always something bright to be found in the midst of the storm. Thank you.

the storm before the calm.... always hope... this picture is amazing and the sentiment with it almost makes me want to cry
Ginnie Hart: I didn't have anyone specific in mind for this, Elaine, but now I will say it's just for YOU.
A fine image... does the windmill tower turn?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry. The tower doesn't turn...only the sails.

Fabulous picture. I think this is one of the best I have seen of this windmill. The miller is at home, the door is open and by the sails I can see that the windmill was 'working'.
Love the light buildings in the back.
Ginnie Hart: This was on our way home from Fort Vuren, MLMA, and is a different view of the mill from what we usually see. Thank you for your kind words!

Oh, waht a thgreatening sky - It will rain? A finely trated photo! 'De Hoop' is a windmill factory/business as I read- like you I love this name!
Ginnie Hart: It is one of my favorite mills here in Dutchland, Philine, because of all the beautiful views to it on our citadel wall. You've seen it!

Un côté dramatique qui me plaît bien
JP
Ginnie Hart: I think we all like a little bit of drama in our lives, JP, from time to time, even if we hate to admit it. smile Merci.
The light is captured on it very well Ginnie. Great sky too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
What a fabulous picture Ginnie! The atmosphere is fantastic.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I think we all like a bit of "attitude" from time to time, right? smile
After the storm comes a rainbow!
Ha ha... that will be your next windmill hunt, G! smile
Ginnie Hart: I would love to see a rainbow in a windmill image, LC. I will definitely be on the hunt!
That is good to know, Ginnie. I could use some hope. Absolutely love this photo.
Ginnie Hart: Faith, hope and charity, Mary...always there for the taking! Thank you.

A very strong image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Love this Windmill Friday Ginnie. Nice bits of contrast to go along with the "hope" theme in what looks like rather uncertain conditions
Ginnie Hart: I really dramatized this, Janet, of course. It's never looked this threatening, I'm sure. smile
My goodness there was some atmosphere building up there Ginnie, what a tremendous shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. I took much liberty to dramatize this more than it actually was that day. HA!

A sky from Chris' shed? The whites of the windmill stands out. Great. So you are a semi-dutchy now. Five years already - can hardly believe it.
Ginnie Hart: I did have to go "fetch" a sky, Louis. HA! And yes, indeed...5.5 years now! smile With my EU Long-term Resident card, I can now live anywhere in the EU. That part was news to me!
So true and so beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Friend.

I looks like a model! Somehow it makes me think of painted backdrop used in theatres. The clouds look very ominous.
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to make this look like this, Alan! smile

A very moody picture Ginnie, the windmill seems almost to be overwhelming the building to its left
Ginnie Hart: I had fun making this image more dramatic than it originally was, Anne. The power of manipulation (as you know so well)!

A delightful image smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Cherry.
superbe atmosphère!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.
I hope I'm wrong... But this looks haunted... grin
Ginnie Hart: You're right about being wrong, Sudipto. HA! This is one of our two citadel windmills where we live and it is definitely not haunted...as far as I know. I just had fun making it more dramatic.
That is a stunning shot. Absolute perfection.
