Visiting Bangui’s windfarm, again

The tricycle we hired was going down the slope from the highway in Burgos, Ilocos Norte. We just came from the beautiful Kapurpurawan Rock Formations and Cape Bojeador Lighthouse but as soon as the familiar white energy generating wind turbines came into sight, I smiled.

I’m back again in Bangui’s windfarm, for the 4th time, that beautiful strip of pebble beach with these massive wind turbines that has become a tourist attraction in itself. Man made wonder, as some say, lording over the natural landscape with the strong waves lashing the shore add to its character.

But I was back here to accompany a friend, his first time to visit the northern province and I’m glad to just join him. The sound of the waves, the sea, the humming of the turbines and just the strong blowing of the wind make the visit just relaxing.

Estan Cabigas is freelance photographer, blogger and writer based in Makati City, the Philippines. A true blue Cebuano, he makes stunning images and meaningful photo stories. His work has been published in local and international publications including National Geographic Magazine, Geo (Germany), Sunday Times Magazine (London) and other publications.

He is also a peripatetic traveler and has traveled to all 81 Philippines provinces.

I’m open for work, collaborations and inquiries, including hotel, restaurant and site features and reviews.
