The Netherlands - Westzaan
Late afternoon aerial view on a newly built windmill De Veldmuis in the village Westzaan. Here stood once an older version of De Veldmuis (Field Mouse); a small sawmill where wooden strips (so called feathers) were produced to function as dividers in crates or as fillers of wooden flooring. The ditch next to the mill is named after these feathers: Veerzagersloot. But the oldest version of De Veldmuis was situated in the Westzijderveld, east of the village (see background). That mill made sniff, out of tobacco stems. This new mill functions as a windmill, an energy supply for the mansion underneath. The work on the mill is not yet finished. In the background Zaanstad and Westzijderveld are visible. Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes
