POSTCARDS | The Windmills of Holland

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Our first day of real shooting started on a freezing seven in the morning, pretty late for landscape enthusiasts you might think but the sun actually rises at eight in the Netherlands so we’re still good. Our first stop was at the beach that’s just a few minutes’ walk from Hotel Ibis.

The sun came up and everything looked fantastic. It paints everything in a beautiful golden wash and this light seemed to be on the whole day long. It was just amazing.

Later in the afternoon, we checked out the iconic windmills of the Netherlands. Blue sky, green fields, horses and quaint homes; we got the postcard-perfect Holland on our cameras.

* Not really my best photo of the mills, but I hope this suffices for the moment as we’re not allowed to post the really good shots yet ‘til it’s printed in the magazine.

  8. The Windmills of Holland is an iconic landmark of Netherlands which is what it is known for... just like Great Wall to China and Underground River to our country... I think the Netherlands trip would not be complete without seeing its windmills.
