Now this is a site I'm used to seeing in rural areas of the United States! And, the sky looks great.

The shape of the windmll against the sky creates really nice image:)

Brilliant shot, love the contrast against the sky

Walker said...

I grew up looking at these kind of windmills. Love it.

brattcat said...

I'm in agreement with the others. This is a splendid marriage of metal and marvelous sky.

This could be Australia!

Lois said...

That's a nice silhouette shot against that beautiful sky!

Portugal? It looks like it could be out on the prairie in Kansas.

I just got back from Kansas and Missouri. This looks like it could have been taken there!

It is a gorgeous low ground image. We really shold have windmills here with the gales we get.

Jarart said...

Windmills make such good subjects for photographs and the clouds in the pretty blue sky set this one off perfectly.

A nice wind coming from the Ocean...

Great Sky!

Fantastic sky. Though I've seen windmills like this in the south of Europe, they always remind me of America!

Julie said...

Wonderful angle to this image, JM. And very appropriate to isolate it in the very millieu that gives it reason for being.

Clever ...

Dina said...

Beautiful image.

Thanks for your last comment, JM. I appreciate it.

marley said...

Look at those fluffy clouds. Nice!

Cristóbal said...

It reminds me of rural US even though the sky is different :)

asf said...

That's a beautiful sky and windmill there. Great shot as always.

gogouci said...

Picture perfect. Looks like this could have been taken in rural Oregon.

You have a way to activate those windmills of our minds. Simple and beautiful.

As the images unwind
Like the circle that you find
In the windmills of your mind

If I didn't know better, I'd figure I was looking at a windmill on a ranch in west Texas. Love the sky!

Jackie said...

That's a funny windmill. I just love the sky!

Tiago Ralha said...

Fantástico...
É cada vez mais difícil encontrar estes moinhos de vento!!!

Joy said...

I like the angle at which you took this photo, JM!

Wonderful photo! It looks great on the sky background!

Joan Elizabeth said...

Hi JM, I knew my windmill on Sweet Wayfaring was coming up that's why I was so fascinated to see yours. You keep saying that parts of Portugal are like Australia ... I'd really love to go see it some day. Judging from the comments this type of windmill is prevelant in parts of the US too ... interesting.
