1.5 km to the north of Chios Harbour are 4 windmills on a narrow peninsula jutting out into the sea. Shown here are 3 of them. They were part of a small scale industrial production for Chios but are no longer used.

Good capture of these windmills lined up in a row, which sit well against the grey/blue background. Well framed and excellent rendering of the textural detail.

these windmills look wonderful. So typical of the Greek islands and a change to see the natural stonework as opposed to white washed. Full of character and captured perfectly.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

The distance between the windmills and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the architecture of the windmills. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Ils sont très beaux ces moulins à vent bâtis directement sur une jetée qui se prolonge dans la mer. La lumière difficile est très bien gérée et l'ensemble est d'une belle netteté.

Wonderfully employ pic. space, those well preserved windmills is an evidence of ancient wisdom. People had the sense of using wind for energy, until fossil fuel discovered - and what had happend to the environmet since ? Use of windmills with modern and effective wind-turbines is our future most clean energy.
Technical details superbly collected.
Have a nice new week,

windmills are very charming objects for photography. These three gain also a lot from their picturesque location on the sea shore. I like the way you focused almost entirely on them and framed the picture quite tight. Good light and pleasant pastel colors.
Thanks for sharing

You composition here is very nice using the water's edge to create a diagonal through the scene. The lighting is fine as is the sharpness and detail.

Hi Chris - When one thinks of an industrial project, a vision of rustic windmills does not spring to mind! How fascinating and how attractive too. I wonder if future generations will view modern industrial buildings in the same way?
A fine shot with an attractive soft palette of colour. I wonder if these have been earmarked for development as holiday cottages, it would be super to stay in such a location.
Have a lovely Sunday

Very nice local view with these original windmills and a little bit warm lights

questi tre mulini sono molto belli, la loro struttura in pietre è magnifica, sembrano in qualche modo riprendere le tre famose piramidi egiziane.
Ottima qualità fotografica, la luce non sembra delle migliori, ma il risultato è eccellente.

une très belle composition, ces moulins sont superbes. J'aime également le couleurs de la photo, les teinte's sont douces et très harmonieuses. Un joli site bien présenté.

Netteté au top l'on peut y voir les moindres détails des pierres, trois moulins a vent de volume différents au milieu de l'eau, belle présentation

Hi Chris, great view of this beautiful composition with interesting mills, very well captured with a great pov in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

What a beautiful subject, so unusual. I like the composition a lot and how you managed in light conditions which were pretty ordinary. I can imagine this at sunrise or sunset, but unfortunately as tourists on limited time, we can't always choose when we visit a site.
Nice work, thanks for sharing

Good capture in diagonal of what seems old windmills
Composition of only two colors, a good contrast
Well done, tfs

They seem very well preserved and the photo is very good in spite of the cloudy sky. Very good colours and details!
mcmtanyel (23309) 2014-08-11 19:53
These are the same kind of windmills that I used to look at whenever we stayed at Gümbet, Bodrum. These are much better preserved, though. Very nicely done!
