Generally, it is. At this exact moment, it is undergoing repairs having sustained some damage recently. But that should be complete in the next couple of months, and it will be back in action.

Are you asserting that you have retired from bearing any resemblance to that mode?

How are those "blades" feathered to minimize over-spinning and damage in heavy winds?

It hasn't been too bad (not compared to what other parts of the world have been experiencing). I think the issue was this... The windmill's top section is normally free to rotate, using a device that catches the wind, ensuring that the sails always face into it. However, on this occasion, the wind was strong and violently changed direction more quickly than the windmill could turn around - the result being that the mechanism within the structure was thrown into reverse - which caused damage. The group maintaining the windmill do an excellent job and are working hard to get the damage repaired.

However, this did represent a night photography opportunity! Usually, the windmill's tendency to turn itself to face into the wind would mean that it would never be in a static position (even if the sails were not rotating) - making a star trail image a mess... But, while the repairs are done, the windmill is in a fixed position.

Hoping for a banger sunrise I went out to this spot this morning. It didn't quite work out how I was envisioning, but it still wasn't bad.

Yeah, I know that feeling. I once started a hike at midnight in order to get to a vantage point by sunrise. And of course it was a pretty sterile sunrise that day.
