Hi TL Folks!

This is another shot of the windmills of Bangui at Ilocos Norte. The place is usually full of tourists during sunset and i used this opportunity to include them in the shot to emphasize the scale and size of the magnificent windmills.
One has to be there to really feel the place, and by far one of the most beautiful spots i have ever been.

Marumi CPL + Cokin GND to balance the sky and foreground.

Thanks for the peek!

Hello Ian

What a great shot showing the size of these clean power producers. Amazing I tell you, Amazing. Nice capture with a awsome color.


Hi Ian,
Odd to see them this close to the shoreline. It made the beach look a lot interesting. It is a sort of mix of technology and nature. The setting sun is wonderful and added a warm mood to the photo.
Good use of the CP and grad filter resulting in a spot on exposure.

This looks so unreal, like being on Mars or another planet. If there would be no people, you realy could think ...
Gigantic windmills, brilliant warm colours, it's amazing - and I love it, thanks

Bom dia Ian
I like th light and the sharpness and definition that people come trough the image very well compose with the windmills in the left of composition in a good balance with the curve of the water. Very interesting composition and well took.
um abraço

Hello Ian ,
What a lovely composition of this beach site,the winds mills are very well positioned in the frame with nice details of the subjects which are the FG people,wind mills and the BG sun set with amazing color tones,the filter also played a vital role while your creative framing and well managed exposure plus the POV makes this a beautiful shot with superb DOF in the composition can be seen.
Best Wishes

Nice one, the light on the beach and mills is very special.

Colour of sky looks fine and central position of the sun gives it interest.

Inclusion of people as you say, is helping understand size of mills.

Bonjour Ian
Quelle image insolite!Ces éoliennes prennent toute leur immensité dans ce POV.Belle gestion de la lumière avec ce magnifique ciel embrasé.Beaux reflets argentés de la mer qui réveillent à merveille l'image.Bravo Ian!Catherine

Hello, Ian -
Nice to see a posting from you! This is a sight that I've never seen before, and I really like your composition here. The row of windmills at this angle leads the eye to warm red sun in the background; the people and their clothing add life and color to the scene. The light shimmers on the surface of the water. Very sharp throughout. Excellent.

Hi Ian....beautiful tones and exposure...nice work.


Ciao Ian

It sure is very, very different from
Brazilian beaches, the addition from windmills
leaves very different but worth the distance!
the colors make me happy and give me life seeing this landscape!
Congratulations, are a delight to my eyes!
Greetings my friend ...


Hello Ian ,

I prefer palm trees at the beach (^_^). But indeed your shot is really spectacular here. I am glad you added the other photographers in your shot. They do add a lot to your composition.

panalo ito Engr, kung bakit ba naman nagsisiksikan itong mga turistang ito nakakasira ng view :-)

Hello Ian!
Fantastic red sky and very nice point of view!
Lovely atmosphere!
Best regards!
