Wassenar Windmill

My notes say that this old photo (a scanned slide) is from Wassenaar in Holland, back in 1976.

Oh, what a beautiful old windmill!! Actually, it doesn't look old at all and neither does the photo!! What a great post for the day, Al!! Hope you're ready for a new week!!

Cool windmill! Nice that you saved all your old slides and can share them now.

Linda said...

It's beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing this. I really don't get to see windmills and I appreciate your photographic talent!

Great capture!!

Very nice! I'm always surprised when one these things is set in the middle of a neighborhood. I always assumed that they were all in the countryside.

Great scanned photo for OWT ~ Windmill is beautiful!

So graceful and unique. Wondering why the blades have the mesh wire for a part of the surface?

Oh for a magic carpet and more time in the world!

I'd love to visit Holland one day and see a real windmill like this, Al. Happy 2014!

Hi Al, Happy New Year. I've seen an actual old windmill only in Sweden, but it's not working anymore. How is the cold there in your area now?

I replied to your comment in my post, i said my distance from the seashore is actually in terms of metric distance, not meters above sea level or masl, as probably yours is. Thanks for always visiting.

Holland is a small country but so photogenic – your photo shows it.
