I love the story behind the picture and found it a fasinating read. Lets me enjoy the picture even more. What history these old mills have, to bad we dont use them more often. Beautiful colors,that sky is such a beautiful way to bring them out. Love the rock around the mill. A gorgeous sight my friend.
Have a fantastic day and enjoy. #9647912

The wall frames the windmill which exhibits nice geometric design and lines. The blue background showcases the whole image beautifully. #9666438

Back to Mykonos, Greece. Once, over 20 windmills existed on Mykonos and they have been used for grinding the agricultural products. Today, the mills arenít used anymore. For anyone wondering how the skeleton framing could turn, when in use, triangular sails made of cloth are fastened to the frame which work against the wind to enable them to rotate. They now serve only as subjects for avid photographers and still turn but only in our minds...
