Shooting into the sunset is one thing, but remember to turn around and see the colorful reflections of the light.

Consuegra is a municipality located in the province of Toledo, Castile-La Mancha, Spain. Most Spanish windmills, like those described in Cervantes’s Don Quixote, can be found in the province of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The best examples of restored Spanish windmills may be found in Consuegra where several mills spike the hill just outside of town, giving us a spectacular view of the 12th-century castle and of the town.

Kinderdijk windmills: unique & iconic water management
A significant part of Holland is situated up to approximately 7 meters below sea level. The Dutch don’t notice any of this though, because an incredibly innovative and intricate system keeps the ever-rising seawater from flooding the land. Even during spring tide, the Dutch are safely guarded from being washed away…

The most important aspect of UNESCO World Heritage Kinderdijk is undoubtedly the unique collection of 19 authentic windmills, which are considered a Dutch icon throughout the entire world.

Thank you all for your comments and supports ^-^
