With the B&W picture, it looks like it was painted in 1807.

Awesome shot, I have posted a much more modern rendition is my WW. Kind of neat to see something on the same theme of using the wind.

Oh, very nicely done, Jams! I love anything that spins about in the wind! Particularly if it ISN'T using oil and oil products!!!!!!!
Is this near you? And what is its function?

Windmills are soooo cool! That is so much cooler than any I have seen where we live! The fins remind me of giant combs. Lovely picture, as always!

Very fine photo. I don't think I've ever seen a windmill up close.

Jim said...

This is a very nice picture of a very nice windmill. Is it operational (besides just turning around and around, i.e. is it driving something)?
Happy WW!

A very beautiful photo. The black & white does give it a surreal look, doesn`t it.

My WW photo has spectacular color. Do come see it.

That's just a *beautiful* photograph. I used to live quite near a windmill and it was a landmark we all recognised on our regular family outing.

Happy days..

That is a great photo! And yes, I think the black-and-white brings out a lot.

I am looking at the blades and I almost see piano keys. Interesting.
