I (heart) windmills...

You have caught the majesty of this wind machine, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: This a fairly pleasant windmill standing in an open bit of ground, not many distractions around, Ray. So it does dominate the local landscape.

Joli moulin, on dirait qu'il est posé en équilibre.
Ayush Basu: It was not operational that day, Martine.

As one windmill said to the other, “it’s your turn”.
Ayush Basu: grin Quite right, Chad.

Ayush Basu: It does look a bit like that, now that you mention it, Elaine.

She is a beauty - normally so dark coloured, that this one is a delight.
Ayush Basu: You are quite right actually, Louis - I did not notice that at first. As a matter of fact, this particular one used to be painted with advertisements in the past as there was a rail line passing through the vicinity and this was then the tallest (and therefore easily seen) structure around.
This one looks very nice and well kept.
Ayush Basu: It was well maintained indeed, Mary.
Isn't that a lovely windmill.
Ayush Basu: And in good, working shape too, Brian.

lovely, subtle coloring here
Ayush Basu: I agree, Sherri - I did not notice that at first though.
Its a fine example, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: A fine reward for visitors, Frank.
A very fine structure.
Ayush Basu: A pleasure to visit this place, Tom.

It looks to be in very good condition. Huge sails, too; they almost seem to go down to the ground.
Ayush Basu: Vital in catching wind, and if the power was too much, the miller chose to unfurl one or two of the sails only, Alan.
That is so nice.
Ayush Basu: I loved this visit here, Michael - thank you.
It looks so beautiful and elegant, doesn't it! Wonderful photo, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you as always, Elizabeth. I was not disappointed with my visit here.
