view from inside

This windmill is one of many in my Villege. Is my favorite since I always was able to see it from my window when I was child...



From Wikipedia:
A windmill is a machine which converts the
energy of wind into rotational motion by means of adjustable vanes called sails. The main use is for a grinding mill powered by the wind, reducing a solid or coarse substance into pulp or minute grains, by crushing, grinding, or pressing.Windmills have also provided energy to sawmills, paper mills, hammermills.
