I prefer mills to wind turbines but I like this line of large white mills

Great contrast between traditional and modern technology. But really nice scenery.

Une photo qui ne manque pas d'originalité.
Ce moulin au milieu des éoliennes dans toute leur modernité...
Bonne journée Willem

Wind power is gaining momentum...And the turning turbines do add a kind of beauty to the landscape...

It is better this one that uses the same energy as this old mill, that the thermal power stations.

De horizonvervuiling slaat werkelijk overal toe!

de fotografie is fantastisch en een van de vleugels van de molen perfect gesynchroniseerd met een van de bladen van de windturbine (hoeveel hebben "gezien" dat?)

Zo samen met de oude molen vind ik de windmolens niet verkeerd. Toen de eerste (oude) molens gebouwd werden, zal ook niet iedereen tevreden over het uitzicht zijn geweest. Nu vinden we ze prachtig, wie weet wat de toekomstige generaties van de moderne molens vinden.
Ik vind dit een pracht plaat!

The old and the new. I know the scene that I would prefer, it would be without the new windmills. Great image Willem.

Ach, het heeft ook wel weer iets moois ... Zeer fotogeniek in ieder geval. Fraaie voorgrond ook!

Hanry from Castricum, Netherlands

Goed gezien, fotogeniek plekje door het contrast tussen de oude en nieuwe windmolens. Mooi vastgelegd.

I think the old windmills are so beautiful and traditional. They are how I think of your country. The new ones look just like what we have here. You have an interesting shot with both the old and the new in contrast, but I prefer the old. 5*

On reproche aux éoliennes d'être moches et mal venues dans un paysage... ce n'est pas mon avis.
En l'occurrence avec ce premier plan géométrique, cette rangée d'hélices, au contraire, embellies l'environnement.

A fantastic view and wonderful contrast. The old windmill is beautiful. 5*

Ja, helaas !
De voorste vind ik mooier dan de achterste rij, maar iedereen wil stroom, maar niemand wil de opwekkers zien :-(
