A classical Dutch polder view showing two out of three mills standing on a row here (I could not get behind the third one for this photo). The mills might be as old as from around 1672.
This set of three mills can be found in Stompwijk and can be see from the motorway A4 near Leidschendam.
The three mills can still be used to pump the water out of the Driemanspolder. There are currently people living in these mills. They can't be visited/viewed inside but you can walk around on the path in front of them.

Prachtig gekleurde lucht met de mooie silhouetten van deze windmolens en speciaal van de omhoog staande wieken.
Beste groeten, Paul

Yes, this is so Dutch. Love the two windmills in a row, the smaller one or more distant one framed by the arms of the bigger one is nice for your composition. Lovely orange in the sky keeping it Dutch with this colour ;-)

The silhouettes of the windmills are so dynamically placed in the frame and stand out so well against the attractive sky. The contrasts are just right.
