A windmill is standing tall in the dutch landscape. While visiting instrument maker Rob van den Broek to talk about film related imagery, he took me on a bicycle trip around the area where he lives, Zeewolde. We witnessed the installation of the blades of one of these majestic wind mills. These constructions always give me a distorted feeling. I do love the un-natural looks of them in the lower lands of the Netherlands. This area of Zeewolde is below sea level, the water was pumped away and kept away so people can live, work and farm there. Even the landscape is artificial, so it feels like the right place for them. The landscape can be magnificent and other worldly in a morning mist for instance. If you look closely you can see a small box half way through the back of the windmill, this is the lift that takes engineers up for work in the top of the construction.
