A lavender windmill in Kinderdijk
LED lights illuminated World Heritage-listed windmills in Kinderdijk, Netherlands, Monday. This year is the first that energy-efficient LED lights are being used. (Photo credit: Jerry Lampen/Reuters)
Perhaps a visitor from the Netherlands can enlighten me as to why these iconic windmills are now illuminated with colored lights at night. When I first saw the photo I thought it was a bit bizarre, but the longer I look at it, it doesn't seem so bad...
Blogged because I wonder how many other film buffs cannot view a photo of these iconic windmills without immediately being reminded of the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Foreign Correspondent (1940).
