Eendracht Maakt Macht 3

A grinding wheel.

 

Minor repairs are done by the millers themselves; any serious repair and maintenance work means that more qualified personnel need to be brought in. The mill operates on Saturdays and is open to the visitors to walk in and take a look around. It is also visited by school children. Requiring wind to drive the vanes, the mill sits on an elevated mound and there are obviously no tall buildings in the immediate vicinity.

I like these lines...
Ayush Basu: I liked them too, along with the dotted textures, Larry.
Belle composition sur un angle bien choisi.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: Merci, Pascale. This is an important part of the mill.
What a fantastic macro Ayush!
Ayush Basu: You would not want to see spiders and other insects on this millstone especially when it is in operation, Elizabeth.

What a lot of interest to this mill, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I find windmills very fascinating and there are certainly a lot of them in the vicinity, Lisl.

I wonder if there are any millwrights left in the Netherlands to do this repair-type work Ayush?
Ayush Basu: Minor repairs are done by the millers themselves but there do exist specialist companies that do a thorough job, Chris.
Belle prise de vue ..
Ayush Basu: I am pleased with your response, Claudine.
You wouldn't want to be under this!
Ayush Basu: Oh you are absolutely right about that, Bill - which made me think of whether it is a possibility that spiders, ants and other beings of comparable size ever get trapped inside with the grains.
Mills are interetsing places, there is a preserved, and working, watermill about 400 metres from my house http://www.shepshedwatermill.co.uk/
Ayush Basu: Thank you for sharing that, Brian. I think I recognize that prong shaped hoist for lifting heavy equipment, seen in the tab "stone floor". There are some water wheels here too although I have not had an intimate look at them.
A fine close-up, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It was good for my personal understanding too, Tom.

That was a great series about the windmill, Ayush. This is one of the main parts of the mill. you captures that wonderfully.
Ayush Basu: Dank je wel, Astrid - I am pleased you like it, I have a few more up my sleeve.

Once a very common sight in the UK, too. We have a restored windmill not far from my own home and also a tidal mill. I like the detail here.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I hear that they were also once very common in Belgium and the north of France, Alan.
rusty slat bolts and broken plaster makes for a great composition Ayush....petersmile
Ayush Basu: And they belong to a central component of this mill too, Peter.
The repairs make a really nice graphic shot.
Ayush Basu: I felt this component is the most important of the mill, so I was pleased to get this shot, Michael.

Now that's leading lines!
Ayush Basu: I liked them too, along with the dotted textures, Bonnie. Thank you.
