17 Photos of Windmills That Are Anything But Run-of-the-Mill

Themed Collections

15 December 2017

Posted by Tim Boddy

If you’re a windmill, the chances are that life peaked in 1850.

Roughly, the total number of wind-powered mills during this time was around 200,000, with 10,000 of those in windmill-friendly the Netherlands. Now only 1,000 of these are still standing in the country and even fewer remain in operation; many of these are operated by keen volunteers. And we’re glad that these people exist, preserving these marvellous structures that possess a unique cultural heritage.

In case you’re not aware of what they actually do, windmills converts the energy of wind into rotational energy by sails, and were (and occasionally are) used to mill grain, pump water, or sometimes both. They also act as a very handy prop of sorts to the discerning landscape photographer. Need to jazz up your landscape? Stick a windmill in it. Here are 17 windmills that photographers have taken sought-out to create captivating images.
