Photographer's Note

Picture taken a cloudy and sunny day last summer. I had to wait approximately 30 minutes for the sun to shine on the field of weat in front of the mill.

Hope you like it!

Färjestaden is located in the southern part on the island of Öland and is named after the ferries that used to be the only connection to the mainland. Nowadays the impressive car-bridge Ölandsbron connects the mainline with the island, and Färjestaden has had an impressive population increase, making it several times bigger than the town Mörbylånga.

The windmills of Öland, some 400 in number, have become the very symbol of the island. They are mainly post-mills, built to serve the needs of individual farms. All of them are now statutory protected ancient monuments.
