    Certainly prettier than the fields of windmills that look like white lolly-pops. And yet I think we do need more windmills to help harness nature. Though we can really only borrow what nature gifts us.

    Apart from its practical uses, such as milling grain, a windmill was a symbol of power. Before the industrial revolution windmill’s usually belonged to a rich landowner and was another means of exhorting money from the poor. Seeing your wonderful photograph brought to mind the relevance it would have had to the community who used it, real social history.
