Beautiful colors and clarity captured here! Nice standouts against the sky.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. I'm such a glutton for these Dutch windmills!
Colorful! But what the heck are we looking at?
Ginnie Hart: That's the rotating top of the windmill holding the sails so that they can be positioned to catch the wind, Ryan.
It looks freshly painted! Nice detail shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Elizabeth. Thanks.
Hi Ginnie
Mills in northern countries are often beautiful and well maintained, which I appreciate because we had a lot of them in France but unfortunately very few are still in place and many have disappeared. Beautiful colors under this blue sky. Have a good week!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. In order for mills to remain in the Dutch registry/database, they MUST be maintained but are subsidized when they can prove how many rotations of the sails are made each year. They've got it all down to a science!

Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
Wat een mooie detail van de molen
Leuk en vrolijk met het rood.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. As you might guess, I'm a huge fan of the Dutch mills!

It looks to be in a good state of maintenance. A very patriotic mill.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Louis. It looked like it had just been painted.

A good close study of a windmill Ginnie. Does this one take visitors?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. Because it is a grain mill, I would assume you can even go there to buy flour from it??

een mooie kleurrijke detailopname van de molenwieken Ginnie

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy. These windmills will always fascinate me to no end!
Lovely decoration, I like your close up, Ginnie! I'm guessing this is being preserved smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. And yes, all windmills that keep their registry in the Dutch database are required to maintain their Dutch heritage and are actually subsidized to do so. It's wonderful and so important for Dutch tourism!
I likwe the different colours on the mill, especially at the centre of the sails.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Brian.
Are you sure it's not 1680? He he... The Dutch was busy looking for new land, building bigger empire around that period of time.
Anyway, this windmill is definitely older than the States. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, as some like to say, "it's just a number, right?!" smile
Nice detail, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Tom.
A fine close up. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie.
I think the Dutch from Pennsylvania-Dutch is showing. Love it!
Ginnie Hart: It does have that feel to it, Care, doesn't it!
the mill is a few centuries old Ginnie but the sails look new... i like the way that you framed this....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: These mills are constantly being kept in tip-top shape, Peter, which I love! Thanks.
Very nice image. I love the colours. The red just pops.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. The red really DOES pop, even from afar.
Jolie photo et des tas de petit détails à regarder.
Bonne soirée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. And the same to you.
