H-Bomb’s Sunday photo, week 54: a Dutch windmill

Greetings on this Sunday afternoon. This evening I’ll be attending a meetup here in New York City in which attendees will tell stories about their travel adventures. But I also like reliving my travels here at H-Bomb’s World Wide Karaoke! With that in mind, it’s time for another picture drawn from one of my previous trips.

This week’s featured image comes from the Netherlands. Before I visited Amsterdam, one of my top goals was to see a traditional Dutch windmill. I accomplished that during a day trip that took me to Zaanse Schans, a village in North Holland that abounds with windmills and traditional workshops. While my tour group was being subjected to a boring demonstration at a wooden shoe factory, I slipped away to get more photos of windmills, including the one that you can see here:

This photo was taken during my visit to the Netherlands that took place from August to September, 2004. To get this shot, I had to overcome my fear of heights and climb a nearly vertical ladder to the loft in an adjacent windmill.

Has a photo opportunity ever motivated you to overcome your fears?

  1. Haha great job escaping the wooden shoe (aka “klomp”) demonstration 🙂 Lovely photo! The surroundings there is still very city like. I recommend the Kinderdijk, which is much calmer.. (See my portfolio for a photo off the Kinderdijk).

    Have a good Monday!

    Kind regards,
    Tieme
