Photographer's Note

Meet windmill "De Roos" (English: The Rose): the only survivor of 15 windmills that once were standing on the proud city walls of Delft. It is not exactly known when this mill was constructed, but a little house that is built against the foot of the mill has its origin in 1727 so the mill itself must be older. The mill has been perfectly preserved since a very thorough renovation that was finished in 1990. You can visit the mill on Saturdays, but the shop with different kinds of flour and food for your pets that is located in the lower part of the mill, is open every day of the week except Monday morning and Sunday.

If you don’t have time to pay a visit to Delft and/or this windmill, but travel through Delft by train (for example when going from Amsterdam/Schiphol to Rotterdam), you can see the mill very well as it is located next to the railway. You can also visit their website at Molen de Roos.

This picture was taken on a nocturnal photo shoot for a short introduction course in photography. It was quite cold (-5 degrees Centigrade) but the sky was clear and we had full moon, so it was worth walking and cycling for a couple of hours through Delft. As you can see, the mill is beautifully lit at night.

Tech: negative scanned with Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III in "nightscene mode". Removed dust in Photoshop, ran through Neat Image to remove noise and applied USM.
