Windmill Friday

 

Because I have too many windmills right now for a boat!

You mean 'to sink a ship'.... grin...
This is wonderful, love your presentation. That was a nice little drive last week smile
Out in the boonies indeed and what a place to live smile
Ginnie Hart: Enough windmills to sink several ships, MLMA, indeed. HA! I should have thought of that. smile Our joyrides out into the boonies are some of my most favorite things in the world. We're so lucky!
I love the processing. Excellent.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael. Just messing around. smile
A remarquable picture Ginnie! Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

There's nothing wrong with a windmill any day of the week Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: My sentiment exactly, Chris!!!!!!! (7 exclamation points, you notice)

A beautiful typical postcard of NL. Lovely windmill.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. This is what makes my soul sing! smile
I like windmills so this is fine with me Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Good. Glad to hear it, Bill. smile
This is a very nice treatment. This windmill has an unusual shape.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. There are several types of Dutch mills, of which this is a hallowpost one, used for pumping water out of the polder.

You can't have too many windmills eh Ginnie. Nice photo by the way.
Ginnie Hart: Never too many, Chad, you're right. Thanks.

Great achievement for this treatment, with the aging effect !! Simple and pretty !!
Good Weekend Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Pat. The same to you.
Typical classic!
I went to Margate last weekend, there's a windmill there. But I didn't see it... sad
Ginnie Hart: It's hard to miss a windmill, LC...unless the area you're visiting is quite large. smile
Perfection in the windmill department!
Ginnie Hart: How kind of you, Robin. smile
I like the light and airy feel to this with the delicate vignetting Ginnie. You and Astrid have the advantage over us when it comes to Windmill Friday. Lovely shot
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet. I have enough windmills to last a long time...but will try to mix it up a bit. smile

I will have the inspectors come around and check what you have done to Friday ...

They will probably be delighted as I am, about this most exquisite picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. All those windmills sunk my ship grin

Another of your quintessential Netherlands pictures Ginnie, it is lovely
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne. I guess I expect no one else to tire of windmills, since I don't! smile
I can see this shot on a card Ginnie.. nicely captured
Ginnie Hart: How sweet of you, Ronky. Thank you.
No problems for me as you would realise Ginnie. I am sitting here imagining what it would be like to walk straight up the middle of that path.
Ginnie Hart: That was the back road we were driving on, Brian. When we got to the windmill, we turned left. smile
Nice treatment, Ginnie - could be an illustration from an old book.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom. I like that idea.
the bare branches and the grid like structure of the vanes go well with each other. love your treatment too Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Good parallel, Ayush. I hadn't thought of that. Thank you.
it's a wonderful scene Ginnie... your treatment enhances the windmill and the silhouette of the budding tree....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. The magic will never leave these masterpieces for me!

If this is anything to go by I am looking forward to your series of 'Windmill Friday' ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Well, I may just start something for myself, Cherry...since I have so many windmills! HA! Thank you.

Très belle image.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Sabrina.
I'd love this walk up to the windmill...
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Jacquelyn. I love driving these back roads because almost no one is there. We can take our time and stop on a dime whenever we want!
