Postcards for the Weekend: Serenity/Peace/Calm

What says “calm” better than a windmill standing still? ;)

From Jarina in the Netherlands, February 2018

Molen de Dellen, Nieuw-Scheemda, Groningen, NL

Looking it up in Wikipedia, I think I manage to deduce from the Dutch text that this mill (built in 1855) was a “polder mill” used for regulation of the water levels.

  1. I love this one! I find these very romantic. Do you have many in Boras or nearby?

    1. I can't recall any windmills close to Borås - I think there were more water mills in this area (with water wheels). There are old windmills in other areas in southern Sweden, though. Which reminds me that I still have photos from the trip that my brother and I made back in 2015, that I never got round to blogging about... Including at least one windmill. I'll see if I can find it.

  2. I hadn't thought of that... you're absolutely right. I love the postcard, I love windmills in general.

  4. You are somright, I never thought of it, but really a windmill standing still is a very "still" picture.
