The Netherlands – water and windmills

Despite the cliches the windmills of the Netherlands are iconic and beautiful. A country that has always fought against floodwaters and devised ingenious methods to battle the seas, the Netherlands survives with postcard scenery in moody landscapes. Not far way from these scenes lie neat, highly-planned suburbs as well as busy cities and creeping industry. Here are the shots that reflect the nation’s history and keep tourists happy.
