One year ago we made a small trip to the wonderful mill place Kinderdijk, in Netherland.
I have already four mills out of these region placed, this is a totally other type than the previous.
This is the region of our best friend "caper" or Jaap another member of TE.
He has a lot lovely picture placed on TE of these nice area.
It was very good weather with clouds, this gives more dynamic to the picture.
These picture is made during a trip with a boats on the river.

Thanks for viewing and critique.

The windmills of Kinderdijk were built, because there were difficulties with the drainage of the Alblasserwaard. This area was extensively mined. Through ditches and watercourses, the water was drained. First there were greater natural watercourses, but ultimately these were only the Alblas and Giessen on. Originally it was the water released into the rivers (including the Lek) runs, but came through the drainage in the soil, and problems arose when the river was high.
Peat can these effects be one meter per century decline, and that happened here whatsoever. The water boards should work together and so were two major drainage units
