Windmill Friday

 

Like I said, too many windmills to post a boat.

Terrific shot with the use of the foreground to give good depth.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael.

Windmills are landmarks and never tire me out. Love this time of year, we still can see 'more' because of no leaves on the trees.
Great shot. Windmill Friday hmmmm, I like that smile
Ginnie Hart: For someone who has lived all your life here, to not be tired of windmills is really saying something, MLMA. You know I will NEVER tire of them. I feel so lucky. Thank you.
"The Windmills of Your Mind"

stunning image Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Peter. "[They're] always on my mind! smile Thank you.
These windmill photos are wonderful, Ginnie - when taken by you - so keep 'em coming! smile
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Elizabeth. They're very hard to resist!

Well it's nice to know they still exist Ginnie, not replaced by something electrical..
Ginnie Hart: It's true, Chris. Since the Netherlands is known for its windmills, they will do everything in their power to preserve them forever!

This is a stunning image Ginnie! Well done indeed.

I wonder if there are floating windmills, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: If there are, Ray, I have yet to see one! grin

Hahah.. you could keep this series going for a while smile Are they still used or are they symbolic really? Hmmm.. daft question; I guess it's all electric pumps these days.
Ginnie Hart: Nothing daft about the question at all, Alan, because you'd think they'd be way too old or out-dated to have any purpose now. But all the windmills at Kinderdijk are "working" and sometimes often because of all the water. Windmills must maintain so many revolutions per year to keep their registry in the windmill database. And NONE OF THEM have electric help!!! There are electric "screws" all over the country, helping to pump out the water, but these mills are totally "original," working on wind power and the finesse of the miller, who knows where to set the sails. It's very educational! I should also add that many of the mills are the actual homes of the millers.
There are only a few in the UK so it would get a bit repetitive grin
Ginnie Hart: It would take a lifetime of Fridays for the Dutch mills, Bill. Well, the rest of MY lifetime, Bill, that is. There are approx. 1000 Dutch mills left...divided by 52 = 19 years of Fridays! smile
Lovely color palette...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

i looooooooove windmills, boat? not so much smile this is a beautiful shot and the sheep in front look so happy
Ginnie Hart: I know you love windmills, Elaine. In that regard, we're in the same boat. LOL. grin
A nice mixture of greens and browns in this Windmill Friday Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Janet.
Keep on posting them they are just delightful to view.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves them. smile
This is a very nice tre ment, Ginnie. I love the warm tone.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mary.
I suppose you can see those windmill sails as a giant boat propeller, right? Same difference? wink
Ginnie Hart: You do have a point, LC. smile
even this looks so cool compared to the previous one i have seen smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Joshi. I'm always trying new treatments. smile

As your doctor I prescribe a few weeks in Africa. It will be best to break with windmills for some time.

Great shot - I remain a fan of your style.
Ginnie Hart: I'll take a break from windmills any time it means I get to see Africa, Louis!!! Who's paying? grin Thanks for your support, btw.
Love that you changed it to windmill Friday! Another beautiful one!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. I might just keep the idea. smile

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne. Sometimes it's fun to play around, as you already know. smile
Another lovely shot, Ginnie.

How about a windmill in a boat - there's a challenge.
Ginnie Hart: HAQ! Now you've got me wondering, Brian. Good challenge!!! smile

BTW, your name link is not good and I can never make it work, no matter what I do. HELP!
tres jolie compo et traitement!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
This one's a beauty.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian!
I have a thing for lighthouses but after this picure, I might be in search of windmills to shoot.
Ginnie Hart: But...will you find many windmills in the US, Hollie??? There's one in Holland, MI, if you're ever in the area. smile
