Because this is my second picture of the same windmill, I re-post my preveouse note:
The windmill, built in the middle of XVIII century, is the symbol of the Old town of Nessebar. The town is located on a small peninsula in the Black Sea wich is linked with the land only by a long and narrow isthmus. It has existed for more than 3,000 years. It emerged as a fortified Thracian settlement (the Tracians gave the town its original name Messimbria), afterwards it was a Greek polis, then a Roman colony. In the 1956 the town was announced an architectural and archeological reserve of UNESCO. Now has 2 parts - the Old Town and the New Town.

You have captured the windmill well with the low sun creating warm colours on the beams.

Interesting windmill. Indeed very different to the ones in the Netherlands. Also the story related to it is interesting - it is amazing how long this peninsula in the Black Sea has already been occupied by people.
With respect to the photo: I like the contrast between the body of the windmill and the wheel construction. The colors add a quiet mood to the picture. It would be interesting to add some sizing information, as there is no reference object.

That different kind of windmill is nicely pausing in the clear blue sky. The small bird standing on the top is a bonus for this photo :) TFS.

I like this version - the nice afternoon lighting gives a special color cast and atmosphere for this windmill. The sitting bird on the top was an extra advantage - you were lucky with his participation. Keep posting!

Excellent capture of the giant windmill. Love the way it fills up the frame. Great light as well.

This mill has quite a different from the ones in the Netherlands but it might well be older then many of the Dutch mills.
Do they add sails to get it working, if it still works that is.
You managed to get some good colors and low sunlight on it, well done.

This is my second visit and you do not have so many picture,so I can look almost all of them. Interesting gallery,it looks you do not have any specific interest.
I like windmills,water wheels and this one is unusual,I did not see it before. Nice angle, good colors, helpful note.
