Netherlands, Zaanse Schans, Jan. 2011

My entry for Patriotic Friday.
The Netherlands are proud of their mills which played such an important role in the prosperity of the country. Of the over 10000 mills in 1900 there are nowadays only about 1200 left, but they are now taken care for!

Oh how I would love to see this. A beautiful photograph that could be a painting. I actually had to look at the EXIF information to see if it was one of your photos. Since it was taken with a camera that I know you are possession of, I concluded that it was your photo and not necessarily a painting.

Wonderful entry Petter.
Your words are so true.
Having been away from Holland for an eternity, scenes like this one still make me feel good and somewhat nostalgic.
Have a fabulous weekend my friend.
