Out of the Jurisdiction: Kinderdijk
Kinderdijk -- or the Children's Dike -- is a village in the Netherlands that has nineteen windmills that once were used to drain the water from the low land into the adjacent canals. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The windmills are all in operable condition and are available as backups, but today most of the pumping is done by diesel-operated turbines.
This photo was taken at sunrise on a VERY cold morning in early April.
