We have a working mill here in York. Never did get to see it, doubt I shall now. Lovely to see what is now a rare and precious building. You really are getting good at this photography business! jxx

A little piece of what we imagine Holland to be - right there in the UK! It must have been tricky to catch all of this in the one frame - those sails look enormous. :)

A nice capture of this windmill. Hard to get it all in one frame, I would imagine, without losing many of the details.

That is a beautiful structure. I love how you shot it.

@farmreporter and here I was thinking it was something made at the mill 🙄, but it does refer to farmer’s attire of years gone by. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smock_mill
