Jager vindmøller ... Chasing windmills

I dag var en MEGET FLOT dag i Midtjylland med SOL og blå himle! Siden solskin er ikke så almindelig under den danske vinter, nyder jeg fuldstandigt solskin-dage! Jeg arbejedede i Holstebro i morges (ca. 30 km nord for Herning), men da jeg kørte tilbage hjem, tog min 30 minutter-kørertur mere end en time... fordi jeg blev Don Quijote ....jager vindmøller.

Today was a BEAUTIFUL day in Midtjylland with SUN and blue skies! Since sunshine is not so normal during Danish winter, I completely enjoy "sunshiny" days! I worked in Holstebro this morning (about 30 km. north of Herning), but when I drove back home, mmy 3o minute drive took more than an hour.....because I became Don Quixote ....chasing windmills.

Min yndlingsting om kører i Danmark er vindmøller. Jeg ved at de er ikke så speciel til alle, men jeg synes de er FORBLØFFENDE! Hver gang at jeg ser en vindmølle, mindede jeg om hvor vigtige og kraftige vores naturrigdomme er.... og jeg mindede om Danmarks plan at blive 100% grønne ved 2050. Jeg bliver aldrig træt af ser vindmøller og jeg aldrig bliver træt af tager billeder af dem....især da vi har en flot dag ligesom i dag! Jeg kørte på mange "snavs gader" i mange små byer i dag ved jeg tog "den lang måde" tilbage til Herning. Jeg håber at andre nyder og værdsætter vindmøllerne i lige måde at jeg gør! Jeg kender at Don Quijote ville!

My favorite things about driving in Denmark are windmills. I know that they are not special to everyone, but I think the are AMAZING! Each time I see one, I am reminded about how important and powerful our natural resources are....and I am reminded about Denmark´s plan to be 100% green by 2050. I never get tired of seeing windmills, and I am never get tired of taking pictures of them....especially on a beautiful day like today! I drove on many dirt roads in many small villages today as I took "the long way" back to Herning. I hope that others enjoy and appreciate the windmills like I do! I know that Don Quixote would!

Great pics! At least you aren't tilting at the windmills with trusty sidekick at your side...

Every time I see a windmill now, I always think, Kelli would love this and take a picture of it!

I'm sending a friend to your blog as she's publishing a book, "Going green in good for business," and I didn't realize that Denmark had made that plan by 2050. Great news!

It is also a beautiful day in Texas. We have had cold, rain & fog for the past several days and it reminded me of Denmark. Today is 70 degrees and Dad is playing golf. I never get tired of the windmill pictures - love ya!

I love the windmills too. Have you ever gone right up close to one? They are HUGE! The green-nes of Dk is so cool.

I love the pictures - you did a great job capturing all different windmills. I'm glad you enjoyed your "long way" drive home. :-)
