Windmill View

By TrevBatWCC    
After photographing Keukenhof's windmill from the Draw Bridge I headed across to the mill and ascended the two flights of steps up to the viewing platform. Though only halfway up its full height, it did offer good views across part of the gardens. The lead is looking back towards the Draw Bridge, with V1 a wider view. V2 and V3 are shots of the winding mechanism (no, it wasn't a clockwork mill!), but is used to turn the top half of the windmill so it faces into the wind. In V2 the tulip fields outside the gardens can be seen in the background; it would nice to visit again a month or two later when the tulips were out and in bloom.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

Very interesting to see so much of these gardens - We obviously didn't explore enough.
Love that paving - did you take any abstracts?

Great POV, time to pull up the drawbridge and get the boiling oil out to repel assailants.

Nice overview from the platform.
It looks a bit bare there but the nature in Holland has exploded the last days.
