When walking in Kinderdijk to the windmills, they inspire me to all kind of ideas. Last time I saw the mills and the skies above them reflected in the water. I can visit them in all seasons they are always beautiful and interesting.

Love reflection shots! This reminds me of an old Disney short/cartoon about an old windmill and all the critters that lived in and around it.

Like that lovely little Rembrandt painting. I love the old windmills too - they can keep their new fangled wind generators!

Lovely pics. I have friends who live in a windmill. 3 tiny rooms on top of each other – so romantic.

This are very beautiful. They would be perfect for my world too. No windmills at all here which is such a shame.

Windmills make you think back in time, before the engine, and we forget what a technological revolution and engineering it was, and still is.

I had to come back to tell you that besides your windmill pictures I also enjoyed the first image, a painting of the Three Kings, very much! It looks like a collage, but whatever it is, I like the wonderful layering effect!

Merry Christmas to you! :-)
