Inside the windmill

One of my more popular photographs of recent months. I shot this in December in the nearby Hanseatic city Hattem, on one of the rare occasions where the local windmill was open for the public. What makes the shot inside the mill so special is the ambiguous perspective - you assume you are looking up, but then you realize you are actually looking down.
