WINDMILL

Windmill in Alqueidão, Portugal. In these years of massive proliferation of wind turbines ravaging the countryside landscape, stands this modest windmill which not too long ago was fully functional grinding wheat to make flour. Clay pots fixed to the spokes create an eerie sound which was useful to track the direction of the wind.
