The windmills in a different light

The last two weeks the 19 historic windmills, which are listed at the UNESCO world heritage site, were spectacularly lit with colourful and energy-efficient LED lighting.

This year was the first that these lights are being used.

The lights are from Philips and they were installed by the TU (Technical Union)

To properly do justice to these symbols of Dutch history, each windmill was lit with different LED lighting in its own unique way, thereby creating contrasting atmospheres.

The red, white and blue with subtle orange overtones surely represents the Dutch flag and pennant.

It was really stunning and a must to see.

These photos are not taken by me, but by someone who lives closer to the windmills than I do and who’s a better photographer than I am.

He can see the sunrises and sunsets by the mills, what you can see at his pictures.

He sent me these pictures by email to share them with you on Travbuddy, so all the credit to Adrie, the photographer of these beautiful pictures.

Thanks Jutta and Vance, I gave him your compliments and also the link to see your words to him.
I've tried to make photo's from the windmills in floodlight, but they totally failed:-)
