Windmill Friday

 

The more the merrier?!

Speaking of which, Lisl and Chris fly in from England tonight for the next few days!

(Kinderdijk, NL)

 

ADDENDUM:  Both Lisl and Chris are sick and, sadly, will NOT be coming.  (sigh)

This is a Whao kind of image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Ray. Thank you.
I love this! So many in one frame!! Enjoy your visit from "family"!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. There are 19 altogether but it's very difficult to ever get them all into one image. I was glad to get this many in. smile
Such a beautiful scene. I like the depth of the scene.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I never tire of this place.
They sure grow a lot of windmills in this field Ginnie... superb image...
have a ball with Chris and Lisl....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: There are 19 mills altogether in this place, Peter, but it's very difficult to get them all into one shot...unless you're in an airplane. Our plan is to visit Kinderdijk with Lisl and Chris on Monday. smile
i can only imagine walking along that walkway and seeing such a sight... how lovely, happy windmill Friday!
Ginnie Hart: You would surely think you had died and gone to heaven, Elaine! smile Thank you.

You had a great view on those windmills. Maybe one day we can take walk together from this side. This is a 'big nest of windmills'.... Unique in the world and it never tires me out smile
The more the merrier indeed smile
Fabulous picture.
Ginnie Hart: You know how I feel about this place, MLMA. There is always a new way of seeing it and it never tires me out, either. We are so lucky to have this UNESCO site almost in our backyard!

A classical view on Kinderdijk - many windmills - windmolen - are out of of business as I can read - standing in rest position - I wish you a wonderful togetherness with Lisl and Chris - probably they will see these windmills!
Ginnie Hart: You know how much I love Kinderdijk, Philine. Our plan was to take Lisl and Chris there on Monday but it appears that neither of them will be coming after all. They both have come down with some kind of stomach illness/flu, along with their separate spouses. So unexpected. (sigh)
Beautiful concentration of windmills
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. This is a UNESCO site, with 19 windmills total. It's one of my favorite places on earth! smile

Crikey! What a display; there's probably more there than there is in the whole of the UK. It's not some clever Photoshop thing of just one windmill cloned many times is it?

Have fun with your guests; I'm sure you'll have a great time smile
Ginnie Hart: There are actually 19 windmills at this UNESCO site, Alan...very hard to get them all in the same image. I was glad to get this many!

Sadly, our guests will not be coming after all. Both of them, and their separate spouses, have come down with a stomach virus! (sigh)
So picturesque!
So like England, minus the windmills. wink

PS: That's the link I changed to few days ago. I just changed it again to "https://1ondoncalling.wordpress.com/" winkHope it's working now.
Ginnie Hart: It IS picturesque, LC, indeed.

I don't know what's going on with your link but it's still putting the http:// before the https. Weird.
Quite a fascinating image Ginnie. So many windmills at once!
Ginnie Hart: And there are even more, Richard, but very hard to fit them all in (19 altogether).
I am sad for your news, Ginnie, but delighted with your shot of the many lighthouses.
Ginnie Hart: We are sad, too, Mary. Who would have expected it! I know you meant windmills, of course, but lighthouses would have been as spectacular.

Another new theme, but one we will struggle to keep pace with. Looks like you have enough for the year in one super photo!
Ginnie Hart: Definitely enough to sink a BOAT, Mike. grin Thanks.
this is so beautiful and the colors are great smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I love this image Ginnie.. make the best of the day and weekend
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ronky. We will, in spite of the changed plans!
Beautiful scene,like the depth, excellent Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Roland.
Looks like a windmill invasion Ginnie. You got your moneys worth there
Ginnie Hart: There are 19 there altogether, Janet, so this is only half of them. It's hard to get them all into the same image unless you're in an airplane, of course. smile
So beautiful composition!
Have a nice week end!

After due consideration, I will put it in my likey bin for future reference.

PS. the first time I visited Hollandshire, I couldn't stop looking at these gates in the middle of the fields. No fences or walls attached.
Ginnie Hart: You humble me, Louis. Thank you. I know what you mean about those gates. Just enough to get everyone over the canals and that's all!

Ginnie Hart: Enough wind to last a lifetime, Sabrina!

I wonder what the collective noun is Ginnie - a spin?
Ginnie Hart: A spin sounds good to me, Chris!

What a wonderful collection, and those trees in the foreground really add to the effect
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne. It's a very special place.

I've never seen so many windmills at once, Ginnie.

Oh, Ginnie, that's so sad that Lisl & Chris can't be with you. I'll ring Lisl over the weekend to see how she is.

Can't wait for June, it will be extra special now.
Ginnie Hart: And this isn't even all of the 19, Pauline. You can see why I love it so much.

And yes, what a pity that Chris and Lisl got sick and couldn't come! We'll have to come up with an alternative date soon. But before that, I'll see you in June!
magnifique scène!! Dom Quichotte serait content!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Don Quixote would be in windmill heaven here, JP! smile
Wow... I've never seen a photo with so many in the same image. Is this typical?
Ginnie Hart: No, Jacquelym. This place, Kinderdijk, is unique...which is why it's a UNESCO site. 19 windmills altogether in a compact space!
Oh what a shame! I know they were so looking forward to coming!
Ginnie Hart: It really IS a shame, Bill. Who would have thought BOTH of them would get sick at the same time. (sigh) We'll just reschedule, of course!

I like everything about this. the diagonals, the windmills lined up, the trio of trees,the subtle lighting....oh wow
Ginnie Hart: How very sweet of you, Bonnie. Thank you!
That's a lot of power...
Ginnie Hart: You have no idea, Larry! smile

awesome picture, i wondering how many windmills still excisting.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for stopping by and commenting, Omar. There are 19 windmills here at Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage site. And they're all in working condition, from the 1700's.

Beautiful landscape!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beth!
Now that is just showing off on the part of the Nederlanders!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think the Dutch are very proud of this place, Tom, since it's a UNESCO World Heritage site now. All 19 windmills from the 1700's are still working!

I am so sorry to hear that they are both ill, so disappointing for you all. I hope they get better soon.

I know Lisl was looking forward to the trip.
Ginnie Hart: It was a huge disappointment, Cherry, to say the least. But when one door closes.... I had already planned a trip to Lisl in June for my 70th birthday. Now Astrid will join me for half the trip because she now has the vacation days!
Love the line up! So peaceful looking! Sorry your friends are sick!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. It was such a disappointment that our friends couldn't come...but we will make up for it in June when we go to see them in England.
