Infographic: Your Awesome Journey to Pagudpud

Bangui Windmills -014

This is a tribute to the 15 most beautiful white structures I've ever seen in the Philippines. I can't believe my eyes seeing for myself these 23 storey high windmills along the 3km Bangui Bay. They are so beautiful and I can't help myself but to shoot with awe and jump for joy. This is my humble attempt to capture the beauty of these structures. I was blessed with good weather and nice sky during my visit. The windmills of Bangui appears to be planted by aliens in the Ilocos Norte and the place is so surreal. The trip to Pagudpud just got better and you should not miss visiting these 2 year old wind turbines.

By the way, I'm starting a series on the first Road Trip of the local Flickr Philippines community last June 12 weekend. I can't help but post these awesome windmills first and share with you the beauty of the Bangui coast! Check out these Banqui windmill post cards...

The Bangui coast has a fishing community and it was nice to see all their colorful banca's parked along the shore.

This shot was taken on our way to the base of the windmills. I like this shot particularly because of the cows grazing in the foreground.

This is a perspective shot on how tall these structures are compared to the jeepney parked along the shores of Bangui.

Sometimes I like my shots saturated specially if the sky is clear. I like the play of blue, green and brown colors.

Up close and personal. This is the closest I can get and still being able to capture the entire windmill.

I wanted to capture the windmills lining up but I don't have the right angle for this shot.

I was literally jumping for joy when I saw these beautiful white structures!

Saying my final goodbyes and I can't wait to go back here to shoot during sunset :)

Don't be contented with just watching the windmills from the look out point. There is a road that leads to the windmills and this is the intersection before reaching pagudpud. There are no signs so make sure that you don't miss this intersection. Just ask around or the resort guides should be able to take you to the wind mills.
