Still Texel, this time the village of De Cocksdorp.
"Is this yet another misguided attempt at photographic art by Kasia Nowak?", I can hear you ask... ;-)
No, this is exactly what this structure looks like. It's not a real windmill, but a life-size surreal work of art.
More Texel art in WS.

Modern dutch art and really dutch.
Very interesting object and you found a great angle to use the backlight and the setting optimal.

Zdravo Kasia. Funny little note. I suppose we are all a touch misguided now and then when we act at the spur of the moment and later wonder why we took such and such a photo.Interesting work of Art, a dedication to those poor souls who cannot saw straight nor use a hammer without hitting their thumb? Not sure about the light here, for my taste too diffused but you must have been satisfied with the aura. Srdacni pozdrav i ugodna sedmica.Klaudio.

Le concepteur de ce "moulin" avait dû abuser de la bière :) Jolie trouvaille, très bien mise en image.

loving the sepia tones through the shot, an interesting structure.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical à l'heure ou le soleil se couche.Cette forme ressemble étrangement à un moulin à vent même si elle à le corps d'un poste d'observation.

What I like with your photos is, among other things, that I never know what to expect. You have a refreshing lack of style :-), i.e. you are not stuck with taking basically the same photo over and over. There are such members on TE. This is a fascinating structure, made a lot more surrealistic by the almost eerie back-light. And the WS is very interesting too.

I must say, at first I thought you'd photographed a reflection and flipped the result. And I suspect that's what the creator of this wonky windmill had in mind. Your photograph is more than just a record of the object, however: the light, which creates a monochromatic effect, and the use of near-silhouette had made a graphic and "artistic" interpretation!
P.S. Thanks for doing me the honour of trawling through my back catalogue! Maybe it's a shame more of us don't do it, as there's a wealth of fine work from good people who no longer post. I'll return the favour when I've got a few hours to spare!

W fotoszopie ciezko byloby cos takiego stworzyc, choc pewnie przy odrobinie czasu mozna przerobic w ten sposob realny wiatrak.
Nie wiedzialem o takich budowlach- dzieki za pokazanie

Strange but spectacular silhouette. An unusual windmill that surely captures the attention. Well taken.
Have a nice weekend.

Wiatrak wygląda jak studium architektoniczne Gehry'ego, jest świetny, szczegóły nie istotne bo na tle takiego nieba wygląda doskonale

What a fabulous work of art and it is very dramatic against the yellow sky. The darker clouds at the top hold the composition together. Very well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann
