Windmills: Then and Now

Netherlands Windmills

Last March we did a lot of driving through the Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France.  Looking forward to the stereotypical windmills and tulip fields, I kept an eye on the landscape.  Things were decidedly more modern than I expected.

Netherlands WindmillsI caught this grouping from the car as drove back to Amsterdam.  I love the juxtaposition of modern and traditional!  In addition to the lovely, rolling agricultural hills, this region had quite a number of wind turbines catching the Atlantis gusts.  With good roads and nice scenery, it was quite a pleasant drive – definitely worth keeping an eye out for surprises.
