Windmill Friday

 

Our shortest days are drawing to a close (in the North).

Grab the light while you can.  More is on its way.

Lovely image, Ginnie...I especially like how the sky turns to black.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. Sometimes through "manipulation" you can make an image do what you "see" in your mind's eye. smile

Absolute fabulous. What a great portrait of a wonderful landmark. Great processing.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. It's my favorite mill here in our neck of the woods.
Magnificent windmill in a beautiful light. Have a good day Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Marie. Starting next week the days will become longer. smile
I like this a lot Ginnie, great light and that fine path.

A very Dutch image indeed Ginnie. I breathe a sigh of relief when the solstice arrives..
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling we all do, Chris. It won't be long now.

"Follow the yellow brick road" - no Tin Man to be seen, though. I like the lead-in and, of course, the lovely mill.

I think I'm quite unusual in that I actually quite enjoy the short days; there is something quite nice about being about to just relax in front of the fire (well, if I had one...) and shutting out the world for another day. It also makes dawn and dusk at a decent time for us photographers more importantly!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Alan, I was just telling Astrid the other day how much I love this time of the year when the lights inside make everything so cozy, especially during the late afternoon to evening hours. So, I'm with you.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. You know me well!

Finally you show a windmill again- I already missed them- een heel mooie foto!
Ginnie Hart: Well, then, Philine...I'll have to get to work on that! smile Many kind thanks.
Aren't we all going to miss nights spent together cuddling up on the sofa?
Winter, stay longer with us...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, it does interest me that at the very start of winter the days start getting longer...which has never made sense to me, LC. To you?
This is a gobsmacker Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: How kind of you, Bill. Thank you.

wow that sky is amazeballs lol i love love this shot, and i still looove your windmill fridays smile i know the days are short, we went out to the store today, and it was full on sun when we drove there at about 3:30 and it was getting way dark when we came back at 4:30... kinda sad
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine! I know that many people are depressed by shorter days without much sunlight, and I hate if for them. Thankfully it doesn't last for longer than a few months before the "switch" is turned back on!

The night is already closing in, there. Excellent and fitting the 'short day' comment smile
Ginnie Hart: I had to remember that some of you are on the other side of this "equation," Louis. Your day will come, as we all know. smile Thanks.
I love how you have coloured this - gorgeous!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you most kindly, Mary.
I'm sure you must realise I'm very envious, as always, that you live more or less just down the road from these lovely windmills, this photo has the lot as far as I'm concerned, especially the excellent lead in.
Ginnie Hart: I never tire of the windmills here in Hollandshire, Brian. I feel so very lucky to have them all around me! Thank you.

What a lovely coloured sky, not long now to the shortest day.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne. Soon we will be coming back to the longer days!
tres bel effet "lomo"!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: I didn't know that's what it's called, JP, so thank you. smile
Fine shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.
That is superb!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.
As someone once said, More Dutch...
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Larry. smile
You've posted this windmill before... yes? I think I recognize the pathway and curve to it.
Ginnie Hart: Good memory, Jacquelun!!! And not too l;ong ago...on March 11 of this year.

I especially like the topic . As well , the leading lines, the complementary colors and the DOF. It is just wonderful all around.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you all around, Bonnie! smile
