Not a chance. I am repetitious myself...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, good, then, Larry. smile
Nope! Each one unique and lovely!!! This is great how they are so soft in the mist!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. For me they are unique, too...and lovely. In this case, they're almost figments of my imagination. smile

What a grand view this is. What a beauty. smile that will be frontage news if they all started running....
Love the birds on the gate, enjoying the view too.
Wonderful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for your vote of confidence, MLMA. Actually, those birds are in the field, which I didn't really see till the big screen. I'd like to believe they enjoy the view and aren't going ho-hum by now! smile

All good, Ginnie...but love that fence that ends in the middle of nowhere!
Ginnie Hart: After a few windmills, Ray, I can get stuck on the fences, too! smile Thanks.

Absolutely charming Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
They are a lovely sight Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for your vote of confidence, Bill.

They all are resting from work as I can 'read' - a very Dutch image!
Ginnie Hart: There were only 4 in motion that day, Philine, so, yes, the others were at rest. More Dutch you cannot get!

What a splendid sight they are. When they turn, they re all waving at you and Astrid.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. When they turn, my heart flutters with excitement! smile
What a charming sight Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I never tire of the Dutch mills!
They seem to be turning in synchronisation Ginnie, surely not!
Ginnie Hart: These are all at rest, Chad, and are in this position when not working. There's a whole "language" of windmills, based on the position of the sails. Most fascinating.
Very good photo, nice day to you, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
You're becoming more Dutch these days. Seriously, I can't wait to see you in Dutch cap, must be the one with "wings" smile
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. The day you see me in a Dutch cap/bonnet will be the day! grin

Just so long as they don't start running towards me in a Don Quixote moment!
Ginnie Hart: HA! That would make a good movie, Mike. grin
They do look splendid coming out of the mist towards us Ginnie. A lovely windmill Friday
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet!
They are all different - just like us.
Ginnie Hart: GOOD, Mary. That's what I was hoping for.

A lovely view with just a little mist, it has an almost dreamy quality
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne. It was also threatening to rain.
Each and every photo is unique. Love!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank for your vote of confidence, Robin!

Probably the most unusual Kinderdijk picture I have seen. I think the blades are tied up.
Ginnie Hart: Hmmm. I think they're all at rest, Louis...except for the 4 that were actually working that day.

They are wonderful, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Pauline. Thank you.
How could I not like this, so much more attractive than the modern power windmills. You would have enjoyed the view from mine and Maureen's hotel window last week at Skegness, there is an offshore wind farm with 30+ of them a little way out to sea, and they were all turning.
Ginnie Hart: I even like the modern wind turbines, Brian, because I know they are harnessing the wind. How can we say NO to that! Thank you.

A lovely scene smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry.
This is simply stunning Ginnie... you couldn't have framed this any better... it has a lot of everything in it....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. Sometimes places like this make one "short of eyes." smile
That is excellent. It is amazing to think about how wind technology has been around so long and is becoming more important all the time.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. FINALLY we are getting sensible about that which is sustainable. YES!
I never get tired of windmill pix... I so rarely see them here... except in miniature size in a garden.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. I don't think they will ever become ho-hum for me, seeing them all the time, so I'm glad I can share them with you.
Very nice reflection and a good picture.
Have a great week end!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Natallia.
Love the framing on this...and of course, the windmills
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Hollie. Thank you.
