One of the rare windmills that have ever seen so near to the sea,is this one.Usually windmills were found on hills or in high places, where the air were move their four wings.

The Greek windmill.

The first windmill was drawn by Irona on 1o century AC. It was horizontal axis of rotation and had four wings. In Greece the use of windmills existed enough extensive, because the rich aeolian potential of country. Even if they had presented a lot of centuries before, their use was established at the Byzantine period, knowing still bigger distribution at the period of Frank Occupation, mainly in Eastern Aegean but also in the hinterland.
As a rule they were found in cylindric, stone, double-decked buildings. In the above floor were found the axis and the system of transmission of movement, while in the down floor became the milling and storage of cereals. Their fins were made of cloth, 5-15 metres in length and width of the 1/5 of their length. A windmill could mill 20-70 kilos of cereals the hour, depending on the intensity and the time of wind. Today most windmills have been devastated and are maintained minimal, mainly for tourist reasons.

A variant of windmill was used in the plateau of Lasithi in Crete, for the pumping of water. These were iron manufactures with made of cloth fins. From 6.000 that is calculated that they existed in the beginning of 20th century, today they function roughly thousand. Much of them they allocate four fins.

Ο ελληνικός ανεμόμυλος

Ο πρώτος ανεμόμυλος σχεδιάστηκε από τον Ήρωνα τον 1o μετά Χριστό αιώνα. Ήταν οριζόντιου άξονα περιστροφής και ειχε τέσσερα πτερύγια. Στην Ελλάδα η χρήση των ανεμόμυλων υπήρξε αρκετά εκτεταμένη, λόγω του πλούσιου αιολικού δυναμικού της χώρας. Αν και είχαν εμφανιστεί πολλούς αιώνες πριν, η χρήση τους καθιερώθηκε κατά τη Βυζαντινή περίοδο, γνωρίζοντας ακόμα μεγαλύτερη διάδοση κατά την περίοδο της Φραγκοκρατίας, κυρίως στο ανατολικό Αιγαίο αλλά και στην ενδοχώρα. Κατά κανόνα στεγάζονταν σε κυλινδρικά, πέτρινα, διώροφα κτίρια. Στον επάνω όροφο βρισκόταν ο άξονας και το σύστημα μετάδοσης της κίνησης, ενώ στον κάτω όροφο γινόταν η άλεση και αποθήκευση των σιτηρών. Τα πτερύγιά τους ήταν πάνινα, 5-15 μέτρα σε μήκος και πλάτος το 1/5 του μήκους τους. Ένας ανεμόμυλος μπορούσε να αλέσει 20-70 κιλά σιτηρών την ώρα, ανάλογα με την ένταση και τη φορά του ανέμου. Σήμερα οι περισσότεροι ανεμόμυλοι έχουν ερειπωθεί και διατηρούνται ελάχιστοι, κυρίως για τουριστικούς λόγους.

Μια παραλλαγή ανεμόμυλου χρησιμοποιήθηκε στο οροπέδιο του Λασιθίου στην Κρήτη, για την άντληση νερού. Αυτοί ήταν σιδερένιες κατασκευές με πάνινα πτερύγια. Από τους 6.000 που υπολογίζεται ότι υπήρχαν στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα, σήμερα λειτουργούν περίπου οι χίλιοι. Πολλοί από αυτούς διαθέτουν τέσσερα πτερύγια.

Kalispera Danos,

such an beautiful scenery you´ve captured here in an splendid composition.. really an unusual place for a windmill, but maybe the winds are strong in this bay??

have a nice week, see you, Bernd

Bonjour Danos

un joli moulin comme on en voit beaucoup chez toi près de la mer d'une si belle couleur; une belle lumière sur celui-ci
une belle présentation

Hi Danos
beautiful composition and very interesting note. I like the mill hoisted the last piece of land surrounded by sea. Excellent colors and beautiful light.

Hi Danos!
That's a very beautiful picture!
Natural details together with that windmill look so wonderful here!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congratulations!
Best regards,

Bonsoir, mon ami Danos,
C'est toujours avec émerveillement que je découvre tes photographies.
La beauté du paysage, la lumière, les couleurs, la mise en scène, tout concourt à rendre cette composition d'une grande qualité.

Boa noite Danos

This landscape is really wonderful. The colors of the sea, the hills in background and this windmill are very nice. Excellent photo. TFS

Hi Danos,

The point of view is taking my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the architecture of the wind mill. The light is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Danos, This is a splendid shot of the windmill. I think windmills are always attractive and this is certainly one. It appears to be in excellent shape. I really like the stones and cement surface. It almost sparkles in the bright sunshine. The lovely blue water is a real enhancement of the area. Great composition and the shoreline in the background with the village is also an asset. Very well done. Regards, Roger

Namaste Danos,
beautiful perspective. The windmill is nice to see beside the sea. Superbly composed with the mountain at back positioning it with the diagonal, which added a lot to it. Very well captured shot. Tfs.
Best wishes.

Hi Danos
A beautiful windmill image where you placed your subject well, not the kind of building we's expect so close to this beautiful sea water
Have a nice day JY

Hello Danos,

The (almost) panoramic format suits well to this landscape. Your composition is good, the windmill is on the right place.

Very nice landscape with the windmill at the right. Very good light management and high sharpness. I like the contrasts to the deep blue sky. Good photo job. Thanks for your critique of my TAoist temple shot.

Best regards

This is a nicely composed shot of this old windmill. The off center placement of the windmill add a sense of direction for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness. The inclusion of the trees in the right corner adds depth for the scene.

Hello DAnos ,
A stunning view of this windmill in the sea ! The composition is perfect . Great sharpness and light management .

Hello Danos,

This is lovely.
The brickwork of the windmill is sharply captured, whilst the shadows on its surface, help to suggest its cylindrical shape. I like how you have set it against the b/g of the hills, with the greenery of the plants in the f/g. The colour of that water could only be Greece!

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)
Lesvos is one of our favourite Greek Islands!
We stayed in Molyvos and just loved it!
One of our favourite memories was a spectacular light show in the castle at midnight! Amazing!!

hello Danos
the mill gives still more charm to this beautiful landscape,and the colors are superb!Magnificent!

Beautiful traditionally windmill of Greece, very fine image near the sea .
Great sea-water crystal clear and nice afternoon lighting.
Enjoy your weekend.

Ciao Danos,
Il mulino a vento, in perfetta posizione sulla scena, è l'elemento che catalizza l'attenzione e che aggiunge lo splendido contrasto coi colori del mare e del cielo, grazie anche alla bella luce che lo colpisce.
Eccezionale e senza sbavature la qualità dello scatto.
Un carissimo abbraccio.

Hi Danos.
Superb picture with this charming mill located in a place so beautiful, wonderful vision of these beautiful colors of the sea and the sky. The light is unmatched Meditarraneo to highlight everything.
Have a nice weekend. Best regards.

- Nice this pretty composition Danos, I love these towers and these windmills by the sea, this one seems very well maintained or restored, in any cases, a nice opportunity for a successful photograph, well done!

Ciao Danos, beautiful composition with lovely windmill, great sea view, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Very well done!

Kalimera dear Danos, I agree with you, I've never seen a windmill closer to the sea than this. You have positioned it well in relation to the rest of the view. The blue tones are wonderful and the depth - as usual - is superb. TFS and I hope you have a lovely weekend, Lisa

Hi Danos,
It is true, the situation of this windmill in the shore of the sea is very peculiar and little habitual.
Probably in this place the mill was receiving a good wind.
I like the great graphical balance of the elements in your composition, and also the magnificent light and the clean and natural colors.
An excellent work, my friend.
Best regards,

Αυτό είναι Ελλάδα θυμάμαι από το ταξίδι του ποδηλάτου μου το 1998. Όμορφη φωτογραφία από τον παλιό ανεμόμυλο στη χερσόνησο στη σμαραγδένια θάλασσα. Στο φόντο λόφους, όμορφες ουρανό από πάνω τους. Πολύ καλή σύνθεση.

Hello Danos,
Excellent colors and beautiful light.Beautiful composition and very interesting note. Wonderful windmill near the sea.

The Greek windmills are always a very attractive subject but when they are near the sea make a very lovely composition!
This pretty marine scenery is really enriched by the presence of the mill set in the proper position. This island looks really to deserve a visit!

Hello Danos,
Well composed, beautiful colours, great shot of this idyllic place near the sea.

Hello Danos, Lovely rich & striking colours in this beautifully composed image, with the old windmill well lit & well placed in the frame. This one appears to be in restored state, it would be a pity if they were left to fall into ruins. A lovely, colourful & tranquil location, well captured.

That is unusual to see a windmill by the sea. We saw a similar windmill on Hydra but it wasn't in nearly such an attractive location. You have framed it nicely against sea and sky. The clouds add nice detail. I read the note with great interest as well.

Very good composition with the old windmill on the right side and beautiful seascape on the left side. The colors and contrast are also great.
Good job!


Hi Danos!
The bright-coloured windmill stands out very well against the deeper-coloured background!
Beautiful palette of blues and greens, and very good composition with the mill standing to the right, as if it was supervising the bay :-) I suppose it's not a bad idea to have it by the sea, as it's always very windy on the coast. That's why they put modern wind turbines at sea right off the coast.
Your note is very interesting. I have been to Lasithi, so I know about the special windmills of the area! Although I didn't have any good photographs to post, I created the group theme: "Crete Lasithi windmills"
Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

Hello Dear Danos, that's a painting-like shot with the lonely windmill, which is squeezed between the turquoise colour of the sea and the blue sky. The hills at the background adds depth of field to your composition.

Last week I did a one day trip to the island Lesvos (Midilli). Maybe, in the coming days I will share some photos from the main town of Mitilini.

Warm regards,


Wow!!!Great image with wonderful colors and very nice traditional wind mill.I like it very much.

A typically Greek windmill, acting as a good pivot for this picture. The contrast between the turquoise water, so very appealing against the light colour of the windmill makes this very attractive. Framing is well done & the cropping is judicious. Good work!

Fortunately, the Mediterranean and seas there is no great difference between high and low tide, otherwise, this mill would be almost literally swallowed by water in the Atlantic tides can vary up to 4m. or more in height.

great mediterranea image with windmill with fantastic colors and pov
very beautiful schot

Δάνο γεια σου,
πολύ ασυνήθιστο το γεγονός της ύπαρξης ενός ανεμόμυλου τόσο κοντά στην θάλασσα τουλάχιστον για τα Ελληνικά δεδομένα.Η τοποθέτησή του είναι εξαιρετική στο κάδρο σου με τα φωτεινά χρώματα να δίνουν ζωή στην φωτογραφία.


Hallo Danos,

Je hebt hier een heerlijk stukje landschap gevonden en idem een heerlijke standpunt uitgekozen en heel goed de foto verdeeld.
De ruimte links van de molen zorgt namelijk voor een mooie vrijheid/rust in de foto, de stenen voorin de foto, idem het boompje rechts in de foto zorgen voor een extra diepte in de foto en is het geheel goed belicht.

Samengevat: een mooie en verzorgde foto.

Vriendelijke groeten,

  • Great

Hello Danos,

You're capturing well this scape by a good composition and warm color tone, so entire arrangement is caught by thinking well. It's peaceful and tasteful image surrounding the nature. It's impressive the sea with some color layers and pretty windmill, too. And, low mountains seen behind draw out a good role in the point of entire composition, I think.


Πολύ ενημερωτική η σημείωση Δάνο, μαθαίνω κάθε μέρα!Πανέμορφος αυτός ο μύλος, σε σχήμα, χρώμα, προσωπικότητα. Δένει απόλυτα με το τοπίο, και αντιθέτει εξαιρετικά με το γαλάζιο τής θάλασσας και το μπλέ του ουρανού μας!

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
Η σύνθεση απαρτίζεται από απλότητα και καθαρότητα. Ο μύλος δεσπόζει δίπλα απο την θάλασσα και το φως αντανακλάται πάνω του. Τα χρώματα είναι εξαιρετικά και η ατμόσφαιρα απλά υπέροχη.
Καλό απόγευμα,

Wonderful colors Danos,
Superb landscape, I like the presence of this wind mill close to the sea shore
Fine colors, clear shot with excellent light
