On different days, I went to the Wind Farm twice. One in the morning via the Bangui Bay observation deck and another during the late afternoon via the beach to see these gigantic wind monster upclose.
In the relevancy of the issue of climate change, visiting the Bangui Wind Mill is literally a ‘breath of fresh air’. The 15 turbines installed on-shore were arranged in a single row and in equal spaces apart. The direction of the wind comes mostly from the northeast optimizing the full benefit of the wind which comes from the bay to towards the land. Low carbon technology like the windmill helps in reducing the emission of harmful greenhouse gases that cause global warming. Likewise, it hastens and facilitates government’s program on augmenting power source in the rural areas.

This shot was taken in the late afternoon. I was hoping to get a good sunset. But sunset was nowhere good that day. Literally, the wind was blowing hard on me that I could hardly get a good bearing to take a decent shot. My hair was getting wild, the sea water was ecstatic splashing hard on the sand. The only consolotion is that, it was just us in the beach so there were no people to obstruct my frame.

The next day, I went there again using a different route. This time I explored the east side of the beach going down from the observation deck. It was a hot day and the sunstreaks were perforating on my skin. Upclose, the turbines are extremely huge that it won't even fit into my frame. I felt like I was looking up at a giant robot waiting to slice me in half. Then I found these long lines of thorns just near the shore and thought of the above shot.

ang sakit pala magpanggap. yung magkunwaring masaya ka. patawa-tawa. kunwari wala lang. nakikibiro pero ang totoo gusto nang manapak ng mukha. tumatawa sa jokes. kahit tila kumikibot-kibot ang panga sa pigil. pigil na di maiyak. pigil na wag mainggit. dapat wala nang tapunan ng pansin. kung bakit pinapansin pa. lumalayo na nga. bakit kase hindi na lang hayaan sa sulok. sana di mo na lang ako pinuri. mas type ko ang mga asaran. kahit papaano may dahilan ako. dahilan para umiyak. naknakan.
