On our trip along the East-Friesian coast, we found this windmill near the road and stopped for a photo. Despite the sun was high in the sky at noon, I like the image. These windmills are less common in Germany as they used to be. Only few of them are left. In the Netherlands you can find them still more often.

In my opinion, the dark clouds above the windmill mean, they don’t have a bright future, despite being a landmark or a museum. When coming along such a windmill, try to find out, if there is an option to come inside and have a look, how they work. It’s very impressive. A wooden building around two huge stones invented many centuries ago. A principle used for many different purposes and a base of our current culture.

Take care!
