An old windmill, la Couvertoirade.

One sight.
Other sight. January 11th, 2007.

Through a typical chimney of the toits covered with lauzes, the windmill of Rédounel of the beginning of the 17th century in course of restoration.

Situated on a hill of Causse of Larzac, it dominates the medieval village of la Couvertoirade built at the 12th century by the Knights of the order of the Temple, and its fortified enclosure built at the 15th century by the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. They practised culture and breeding there, providing provisioning for the war.

Knights of the Order of the Temple, Knights Templar.
In 1119, Hugues de Payns, knight originating in Champagne, melt a militia, "The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon", which will become the "Knights of the Order of the Temple". Monks, knights, monks and soldiers, Templiers will defend Jerusalem, and the pilgrims going on the tomb of Christ.
In 1291, following the fall Saint-Jean-d'Acre, the Knights Templar are folded up in Cyprus, then in Rhodos.
In 1312, the order is dissolved, and after a lawsuit, the large Master Jacques de Molay and other Knights templar are sharp flarings on roughing-hew it.

Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem
Before the first crusade, a hospital is founded in Jerusalem close of the Holy Sepulchre for the Western pilgrims, other Hospitals are create in the wearing of loading Italian and Provencaux. In 1113, the Hospital of Midsummer's Day of Jerusalem is recognized like an independent hospital order.
In 1140, the Order of the Hospital becomes in military order, with néanmmoins vocation of charity and defenders of Christendom.
In 1312, the goods of Templiers, after their dissolution, are allotted to the Hospital ones.
In 1522, Turkish takes Rhodos.
In 1530, the emperor Charles Quint allots Malta to the Hospital ones. They since are called Sovereign Military Order of Malta or Knights of Malta .

A clever piece of framing on the windmill from the lovely stone chimney. Perfect sharpness and very good colours. I like the light and shadow contrasts playing about the chimney.

Bien vu.
Amicalement, Bobo.

Salut joel

A marvellous blue sky, with good colour saturation, and superb sharpness & graphism of the fg stone windmill. A good angled pov too, and splendid textural details. Bon weekend!

Hi Joël,
A very interesting and innovative viewpoint for this windmill, seen through the chimney protection! Very good colours and a well composed photo. I always enjoy your notes, always much to read there!
Kind regards

Bonjour Joël,

c'est bon savoir que quelqu'un restaure ce moulin. Je crois que les Français valorisent plus l'histoire dont les Brésiliens. L'image est réellement jolie, avec d'excellentes couleurs et de luminosité. Félicitations!
Amitiés,
Carlos

Ciao caro Joel,
anche un semplice camino, se catturato con la luce giusta ed i colori bene saturati, diventa una piacevole scultura! :-) Mi piace il piccolo sassolino sotto la pietra verticale gialla, segno evidente che il camino è stato fatto con grande cura e precisione. Bella foto, mi piace!
Ciao, buona notte!
Paolo
