The walking mill

G 33

Kolby Mill at the tiny danish island of Samsø “walking” through the year

.The inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
the last walk of 2014 turned upside down by letting the motive do the walking.

The mill was raised in 1899 on the island of Samsø, a mill family bought it second hand
after it before that time had grind grain in Netherlands for years.

37 tanker om “The walking mill

  1. I opened in this in anticipation that this is what you were going to do. I have only seen these windmills in the summertime. Thank you for taking me walking by them all year long. So beautiful!

  2. Thank you so much for this, Drake! One after another, a sequence of stunning shots! I started out shivering but ended up grinning from ear to ear. 🙂 Very best wishes to you for 2015, wherever you may spend it. 🙂

      So glad you enjoyed this “walk” – I feel great pleasure being a part of your walking ttheme or walking team – really enjoy it… 😀

      All the best wishes for 2015… 🙂

      • Thank you so much for that, Drake. It’s nice to feel ‘wanted’. 🙂 Are you ‘home’ in Liverpool now, or still with your parents? I envy you all the travelling, but life is what we make it, isn’t it (with a bit of luck thrown in 🙂 )

        • In broad terms for the last about 10 years so we live in Liverpool a third of the year – another third part of Alsace and the rest of the year traveling inclusive visit to my native island where my parents enjoying their retirement… 🙂

            • If I had to choose to stay only one place so it was either L’pool or Alsace – the latter has something the first mentioned doesn’t have – winegrowers with cute daughters… 😀

              Always loved Alsace – the attitude and atmosphere, it reminds me about the area where I spent a great part of my childhood and youth – the borderarea between Germany and Denmark… 🙂

      This mill is located next to my old parents home – so I see it every time I visit them and see the mill throughout the year in different dress up … 🙂

      So glad you enjoyed the view… 🙂

      • I know , and remember all the amazing photos of it!
        And that’s the reason why I call it ” our beloved” mill….

        On behalf of those precious photos I started to appreciate it ,too!

        • I guess it isn’t a bad idea if we give ourselves the opportunity to observe a place, a building or something else through the year and observe the change or should we say the cycle which it is gone through every year – many places (like Sacre Coeur) haven’t any favorite season except all year… 😀

  3. Fantastic interpretation of “walking”! You’re a very creative mind.. 😉 A mill “walking” through the year, that’s an idea! Very beautiful pictures… looking at them, I remember Claude Monet pictures about the Rouen Cathedral, painted in different moments of the day.. 🙂 Well done Drake!

    • #.aurore
      Thanks a lot, really do appreciate your words – so glad you enjoyed this “walk” – yes (when you remind me) I remember the Rouen Cathedral paintings created by Claude Monet… 😀

  4. Amazing collection, Drake! Must admit I have similar…fascination about windmills as I do about lighthouses. There’s always something to admire, and it is not just standing prodly alone through all the storms… 🙂
