This was takes the same time as the sailboat photo.

Amazing to see that one side had clear blue skies and the other was still drenched in fog.

And the reason I took this side of the windmill is because there was a truck on the other side. They where putting up the sails (???).

PP: cropped, cloned out a post, resized, sharpened and framed.

In 1672, Intendant Talon concedes the island to François-Marie Perrot who opens an illegal fur trading post. Thirty years later, Joseph Trottier Desruisseaux, the new lord of the island, builds the windmill for the use of the residents enabling them to grind their grain into flour. 300 years ago, the miller took advantage of the strong winds to turn the wings of the mill. Since then, the mill has ruled the island still rotating it’s wings on very windy days.
You can get more information on the parks web site.

Île Perrot holds the only working windmill in Quebec, dating from the time Île-Perrot was a seigneury in the French colony of New France.

Another beautiful photo well composed, good clarity, color and a nice and descriptive note. Best of all is the framing which goes along with the colors of the photo. Congratulations Pierre.

I like this thing Pierre! I need one! I love old brick work like this! A little over sharp on my monitor, but it might just be my monitor! or my eyes! How is C the D?


gran imagen enfoque bien logrado bello escenario

Well composed Pierre. Well done.

Hi Pierre,
I like the detail in the stone windmill. The POV is really good and people standing next to the structure really show it's incredible size. Nice work.

Bonsoir Pierre,
Belle photo de ce moulin, belle netteté et jolies couleurs, Excellent POV. et détails, bien présentée dans un très jolie cadre, Bravo,
Mes compliments

Hello Pierre
So that is what the group of people are looking at! :) Nice details on the brick.. I wonder what that pipe coming off the roof is for? I bet before long this gets back in service with gas prices being so off the wall!

I was not aware that this beauty existed, Pierre. I love the texture and the red framing the little door. Were they working to get it operational, thus the truck that you mentioned? Wonderfully composed and very interesting. Bravo
Amitiés sincères

Very fine PoV, superb depth of colour and excellent details

Nicely composed Pierre with good colour and detail. Some noise apparent in the sky which may have come with the sharpening that Linda mentions.

Very nice detail and color, and such a pretty windmill! TFS and have a good day!

Bonjour Pierre,

Joli cliché de ce petit moulin, que l'on dirait remis à neuf!
Encadré par la verdure, ses ailes ressortant dans un ciel bleu azur, Don Quichotte va être jaloux!!!

I liked this Pierre. The centering bothers me a bit as well as the strong light, but it's a very interesting subject as I like the Holland ones as well. TFS

Good color & frame compliments the photo. Well done Pierre! :} Don

very beautiful picture dear Pierre ,and great admonition with good old Don Kihot(I wrote Serbian ,cause not sure how to write his name on English,but you know what I mean)...Maybe it's just too sunny,but I hate sunny days ;)and it's always too sunny for me .....
warmest regards
