This is photo from the TE-meeting with my friend Wolfgang Forcher in Perm.
This is the windmill from the Khokhlovka architectural and ethnographic open-air museum. (19th century).
On the background you see the Church of the Transfiguration 1707.
This one locates in Perm municipal district, on right bank of Kama River, in 43 km from Perm. It was founded in 1969 and opened for visitors in 1980. It is first open-air architectural museum of wooden architecture in Ural.
Khokhlovka include 23 unique monuments of 17th - early 20th centuries. This is territory about 35 ha with many wooden constructions and buildings that was moved here from different places of Perm Krai.
It is one of the most important attractions in Perm Krai.

A very pleasant summer picture, with an abundance of flowers! A very good balance and depth in the picture between the two buildings. The building technique of the foreground windmill looks interesting, the details can be studied here.

I suppose you must be missing some heat and sunshine right now in Russia... this warms the mind up with sunny colours.
Sharp and clean job.

Have a nice week.

A splendid capture of the delightful windmill. The square format suits perfectly and I like placement of the church in the background. A very attractively lit image with superb colours and sharpness.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image.J'aime la lumière directement sur les pales du moulin. J'aime les fleurs bleues qui prolongent l'image vers l'horizon.

Already finished with Copenhagen? And no Malmö? To me, a lovely picture from summer is more than welcome. The old windmill is very nice to watch, but especially I love the view of the blue and yellow flowers among the green grass and many trees. The old church also looks very interesting, although it is far away.

Not something I would have expected in Russia, it's nice to see a different side to the traditional images of your country. Looks to have been a pleasantly sun filled day, the field looks so inviting. Great framing of this windmill along with the church in the background, I like the sense of depth/distance. Clarity and detail are sharp, very nice presentation!

Picture postcard perfect capture, this could not possible be better. You have so many rich elements here. The windmill on its own is beautiful, but those blue flowers leading off to the fantastic chuch in the background is class! Wonderful composition, this is a really rich and pleasing shot. Thanks for sharing!
All the best

Before reading your descriptive note and seeing the picture in the gallery, I thought it was a windmill in Holland.
It is a wonderful composition, is the beautiful old mill, standing out even more by the beautiful setting, surrounded by trees and purple flowers that carpet is a real delight.
Great job, we pleases the eye for beauty and your good work.
Have a nice day.

The wooden church and windmill are located in a magnificent landscape. Among the many trees we find a sea of colourful flowers.
The summer feeling is displayed correctly.
I like your composition with the windmill placed off center.
Best regards, Paul

A lovely capture - well composed, colourful, and with an interesting subject in the foreground (looks-wise and otherwise). TFS!

Good morning Serghei,
nice the view of the wooden windmill,with the land to be covered with all these greenery.I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the image.
emka (105722) 2013-01-21 23:51
Hi Serghei, I can imagine how cold and a lot of snow must be in Perm now and how you miss the sunny days. Beautiful photo with this small mill, quite different from other types and very nice flowers around. i love such open air museums, must be fantastic this one.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-01-22 3:56
Very nice variety of colors here and superb details.Awesome POV and very good framing.Very well done for the great job.

nice and interesting composition,the close frame of windmill works well here,and the lilac plants add color in the picture,
brianmcc (6221) 2013-01-22 11:44
the colours in this image are as striking as the focal point provided by the windmill. the little wooden house to the left acts as a great compositional balance to the main feature. i love the colours under this lovely blue sky.
have a lovely evening,
macjake (71839) 2013-01-22 14:54
I would never have guessed this photo was taken here. I probably would have guessed another 10 countries before picking Russia!
we're so programmed into seeing these windmills in certain places i suppose.
great to see it here, accompanied by the greens, yellows, and purples too.
a bright and warm photo to liven me up today!
see you around
adores (46357) 2013-01-26 17:16
Hope you had a nice meeting there!
It's a very nice summer shot! I like the way you placed the nice wooden windmill and the church in diagonal and also the purple flowers covering the field. Good colours and beautiful sky! The windmill seems really well preserved!
pierrefonds (70553) 2013-01-28 14:32
The mill is well placed in the frame. The distance between the mill and the building is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the windmill. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

Hello Serghei,summer colors in Perm and an extraordinary windmill showing upfront in an exceptional way!Great light and contrast and amazing sharpness!
Thanks for sharing,
Kamilutka (8107) 2013-02-08 5:34
this photo is very beautiful thanks to its excellent composition and very well given colors. The windmil in the foreground is strongly eye catching and the violet fields around it soften the image.
Great clarity and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

auch ich denke gerne an den russischen Sommer zurück, für mich die überraschend hohen Temperaturen und die Freundlichkeit der Menschen. Ich habe viele schöne Eindrücke mit nach Hause genommen.
Wünsch dir ein schönes Wochenende
