Windmills

The modern:
Although the modern windmills are useful for producing clean electricity, they could never be said to be beautiful. The view from the top of this one, however, is quite nice. Located in Tvind, near Ulfborg in Denmark, this was once the tallest electricity-producing windmill in the world, at 54 metres.


The old:
The old grain-grinding windmills are fast disappearing, so it was a pleasant surprise to come upon one while driving along a section of the Marguerite Route in Denmark. I remember it as being located somewhere in Fyn, but I can't find any confirmation of it.



Both are located in Denmark. Scans from film.
