Something about windmills draws the eye right in, Avril. What a great find in Australia (where's the koala?)! So interesting that the mill's color matches the land in the foreground.

Beautiful, Avril! The only windmills I've ever seen are those big modern looking ones. I'd love a pic of one of these beauties!

We used to have a working windmill at the "Old Sydney Town" complex that milled wheat, till it closed dawn about 10 years ago! I can remember buying a two Kilo sack of flour from there, it made some wonderful bread!

These old windmills have so much charm and beautify the landscape as far as I'm concerned. Love this old stone one and the way you let us look in the door of it. Gorgeous composition with the flat land and then the mountains in the background. Lovely colors, I enjoy the look so much. Beautiful my friend.
